So, my coursework is done. I am working on getting the certification exam scheduled…but there is much red tape to cut through on that one. That leaves me in a bit of a limbo state for now. But my breathing is coming slightly easier already. Thank goodness. And since I’m starting to think about life after school, I’ve piled up a few projects on my craft table that are needing some attention.
A few months ago I stitched up my nametag for guild (yeah, I’ve only been a member a year and a half, I figured it was time). Of course, I’ve just cleverly (yes, I stole this idea) folded it to fit in the plastic holder that came with my fabric and threads to make it. But, with something fun fun fun on the horizon in which I might want to wear my nametag, I decided it’s probably time to actually finish the thing. I think I’ve found the perfect beautiful red fabric (in my stash) for the backing. I also dug out the gorgeous black Swarovski crystals that I bought at the Gem & Jewelry show last spring that were intended to be the hanger for my nametag. Now, all that’s lacking is the actual finishing. Any suggestions on what to do for the edging around the piece? I plan to finish it like an ornament, but can’t decide if I want to use cording or not.
I’ve also got some other timely stitching that needs to be completed. One of those items being my Secret Stitcher gift. I’ll be glad when June is here so I can share my two stitched pieces for my SS.
And I’ve also pulled out some supplies for a piece I’ve been wanting to stitch for awhile. Just a little something. But how can you resist these pretties???
So, many projects are swirling about in my head now that there’s room for them. I can’t wait to get started.
I am grateful for the creativity coming back.
