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

Fraidy Cat

Hey Blog Buddies,
I finished--and ornamentified--my February Halloween ornament:  Fraidy Cat by Jamie Kile of Knotted Tree NeedleArt.

I'm not  totally satisfied with it...
The one strand of black doesn't cover all that well,
even on 40-count linen.
But I do like the orange linen (brighter IRL),
and it will certainly be hung on my tree come October.

I also managed to finish my prework
for the Nordic Needle Retreat
intermediate hardanger project...

...and I'm not even leaving until April 17th!
To celebrate this victory over procrastination,
I started a new piece:
Little House Needlework's Home of a Needleworker.
That will be my rotation piece for this week (photo soon).
DH is now beginning to ask questions about
just how many WIPs I have.
Actually, the WIPs are at five now.
The UFOs are another story!
Hope you had a groovy weekend.
Thanks for visiting!

Congrats on finishing the cute ornament. We can never have enough UFO's or WIP's. Have to have that right piece started when the mood strikes to stitch on something.


Anne said...

Your hardanger prework is really pretty. Can hardly wait to see it finished!

Karen said...

Funny that your hubby is commenting on your WIPs lol! One can never have too many! ;)

Oh, that is so cute--I've never seen that chart before... I know what you mean about the black on 40 ct. I've had the same problems from time to time. It does seem to depend on the type of linen I'm stitching on...
