I started something new. I simply could no longer resist starting Midi Mystery 2. So, I spent my day off today stitching on it exclusively. I feel a little guilty about not working on Mystery 9, but I am just not motivated to work on it. I don’t want to force myself to work on something I don’t feel motivated to do. I haven’t stitched enough to warrant a photo, but you will see it soon. I love this design so much. So, what motivated me? Midi 1 is back from the framers…I cannot even begin to describe how beautiful it looks – but until Eric can get a good photo of it, you’ll have to wait in suspense. And really…it deserves a post all its own. So, in lieu of those photos, here is a photo of my progress on Bay Sampler as of last night. I am just loving this piece. It is so colorful!
This is the bottom right corner. It will have some more buildings and trees and a lighthouse in it. Also, it was another good mail day (aside from Midi showing up). I bought the Dimples Designs Mini Jeweled Scarabs. The Silver Needle has these exclusively until October, I think. There is another set of two scarabs that I may have to add to my collection as well. I was introduced to Dimples Designs by Dani. I just couldn’t pass up these beautifully colored scarabs (as I have love of Egyptian things too…maybe it’s the influence of the Amelia Peabody book I am reading as well…)
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I promise to have Midi pics soon! Back to stitching!
I am grateful for sweet cards in the mail!
