I’m so excited! She’s done! Now, for framing. And just in time. Grad school starts next week. I’m so happy that I met my goal and finished this project in time. So I’m debating starting my next project now before school starts. I know it will be terribly distracting to have stitching to do when I’ve really got to study or write a paper, but I think it will drive me even more crazy to not have done the hard part of prepping and starting that first stitch on a new project. I figure if I just start on it, then when I need a mental break from studying, I can pick up my stitching. You know…priorities, right?
On the cockatoo project, however, I did have a little trouble with the back-stitching of the feathery details around her face, but I think it turned out okay. There really wasn’t much back-stitching, so I was relieved at that.
Well, I hope all my stitchy friends out there make lots of progress on your projects this week. So therapeutic, isn’t it? Aaaaaahhhhhhh……
