I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

It's Greek to Me

Hey Blog Buddies,
Did you ever feel that you were spending a little too much time on one project?  Did the shapes that you were stitching (and stitching and stitching) take on a life of their own, reminding you of other, entirely unrelated things?  Do your projects ever talk to you?

Well, that's about where I'm at right now.  Here are a few progress pics by way of explanation:

A week or so ago,
this is where I was at
on CT13 (the red Christmas tree).
Well, that's obviously the top of
a Greek architectural column.
Don't believe me??

...oh yeah!!

Here is my latest progress pic
from said project:

It should be apparent to anyone
that these are the snakes that Medusa
(from Greek mythology)
was condemned to wear
in place of hair.


Color those snakes red
and you couldn't tell the difference!

"Hee, hee, hee," Southpaw cackles insanely.

My final progress pic
is of my Little Lady.
Thought I'd forgotten
about her, didn't you?
(So did she.)

At least she has feet now.
But you'll notice she still
doesn't have a mouth.
That's so she can't start
complaining at 2 o'clock in the morning,
"Hey you over there in bed.
Why aren't you over here
working on me?"

CT13 and I are going to take a little break.
It's going on hiatus because
last night I started stitching
(yes only just started)
my final holiday gift.

Now that's planning ahead!

Hope your projects have
nothing but nice things
to say about you!

Thanks for visiting!

Love your lady, too.
