Hi all! Hope everyone is having a good start to the new year. I always feel like January kind of resets my stitching goals, and regardless of how many goals I didn't meet last year, I still plan to make more meet them all this year! (Don't you just love optimism?)
I am still a bit behind in wrapping things up for last year, but I thought I'd show off my new 2017 start. It's Angel of Grace by Lavender and Lace:
Running Stitch. In her very first video, she's showing off her Angel of Grace, and I thought, "Hey! That's my Angel!" So I thought I should get my butt in gear and start stitching!
So here is my one day's progress on Grace, which was just shy of 500 stitches. I started in the middle:
This is my first time stitching on hand dyed fabric, and it's taking some getting used to. The fabric is really soft, nothing like the Wichelt fabric I'm using for Cassiopeia. However, the holes and weave of the fabric are more difficult to see due to the coloring process and shrinkage. Still, I'm really enjoying stitching on her, and plan to do so for about 10 days. Then I'll be going back to some kind of rotation, though I don't have anything set in stone.
Luna will be a focus piece again this year, so you'll probably see a lot of her. I hope to work on all my projects at least once, but I've got a lot of new starts planned this year as well. Hopefully I won't go too overboard, but I'm not promising anything. :)
Happy stitching everyone!
