In stitching news, I worked on a few things this week, though I am now pretty sure I will NOT get BoaF done before I leave Thursday; too many leaves! Not to mention, the hill the house sits on in Part 3 looks like it's going to be tedious - gorgeous when done, but slow going to get there. I am looking forward to adding the sheep :) Here is where it stands right now:
I also put the first stitches into the small piece I am doing for the Stitcher's Village Sampler Project (it's in the Forum, if you are a member - and if you aren't, check it out!) It's one of the colorways for Patricia Ann's Rose for Every Season, done on 32ct linen banding, with the DMC floss and perle, and Kreinik braid called for - except I negated one of the floss colors by adding beads instead :) Because that's just how I roll, baby! But you probably already knew that...:
And lastly, at the Tuesday Night IHOP, I couldn't decide what to work on - since I finished Tanglewood, my project bag is strangely light on Projects for Less Than Optimum Light. But in the end, Mary Wigham came out, and I got one motif done, and better than half on a second one - and after it was full dark outside, then the yellow lights over the tables killed me, so I stopped before 9:30. But I got more of that Old Maid of the Aubergine in - I LOVE that color :)
So this week, I will keep working on BoaF until I leave; I haven't decided yet if I am going to the stitch night tomorrow, or if I have too much to do. I want to, just don't know what will pile up if I'm gone before being gone, know what I mean? This small Patricia Ann project will go with me to OH, whether or not I have time or inclination to work on it is another story. Might drag an ornie with me, too, since I have 6 of those kitted and ready to go, as well; Tree of Stitches from The Stitch Specialists group is also kitted - yes, I caved - but I haven't put in ANY stitches on it, so I only partially caved :) I don't expect I'll get an update in next week, or if I do, it'll probably be late. So until whenever that is, Happy Stitching, everyone - and come on October!!!!
And I'll just leave you with this little bit of eye candy - not usually a big fan of dreads, but in this case, I might be willing to make an exception. Because, you know, he's a barbarian :)
