I made a deal with myself this week. I really wanted to meet up with some friends from guild Thursday night for a stitching evening, but I had to take a test at school this week also. I ramped it up a bit and got my test out of the way on Wednesday night. I scored a perfect score (1000). Go me! So, last night I began my four-day weekend (I took today off work), and I was able to meet up with my stitching buddy at Barnes & Noble for an evening of guilt-free stitching! Since I’ve done all I can on my peacock for now, I decided to go back to working on Adam & Eve (CHS). I’ve done some fill in on the tree and last night I started in on filling in Adam’s face. He’s got on helluva five o’clock shadow going on there, huh? I am hopeful that over the next few days I can spend a good amount of time stitching and have some serious progress to show on this piece.
I haven’t gone back to stitching on Shores because frankly, I am not happy with it. I really don’t like the coverage of one strand on 36ct. So, I’ve been debating what to do. Start over on 40ct? Leave it and hope I learn to love it? Well, I think I’ve figured out what I want to do. So, I’ll have to do some test stitching and see what I think. But, that’s the reason Shores has been tucked away for a bit. I hope to get it back out soon, because I do dearly love that design. I’d just like to dearly love my stitching of it too.
Anyway, I have some other goodies to show you next time. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
I am grateful for a stitching night.
