Mostly it is only small motifs and a few over one words and letters that I have to stitch yet. As always it's a matter of finding a nice chunk of time to sit down with this and get through the last bits yet to stitch. I've been making slow but steady progress nonetheless. I've been stitching for a few minutes each day before work and it seems to add up, as here I am so close to the end!
I'm not sure if I ever shared this design here or not. It's by Lizzie Kate. I started stitching it a while ago and am almost finished with this one as well. Just a little backstitching and a few more motifs to finish. I want to finish this as a pincushion (like this one).
Have I mentioned lately how much I miss stitching? I can't seem to get the energy to stitch on the weekends these days, and it goes without saying I never seem to have enough time to accomplish all the things I want to when I do have free time (but I know I'm not alone with this problem!).
Of course lack of enough free time doesn't stop me thinking about what I might stitch next (much like looking ahead in my reading). These samplers are by Prairie Schooler and are from their "Country Seasons" chart. I think I'd stitch the "Autumn Sampler" if I can pick one soon.
Or maybe something quick like this little sheep from Shepherds Bush called "Queen Bee". They have a whole series of sheep designs, and I've been trying to stitch them all. I'm not sure how I'll finish them all--little pillows maybe to fill a basket? Anyway, I think I'm ready to add a new sheep to my collection.
But, first things first. I'm not allowing myself a new project until I finish one first!
