‘Cause that’s my fun day.
It’s paperwork Monday here for me, and I can tell you I’d much rather be stitching or knitting. However, since those activities don’t pay the bills – paperwork it is.
I can reminisce though, and that’s a bit of quick fun. I stopped by my LNS on Friday to pick up some fabric for the other Hands on Design “a year of chalk” – you may recall that I stitched November’s design. While I was there, Neale – one of the owners and framer extraordinaire gave me a sneak peek of my Blackbird Designs “Christmas Garden”, which is just awaiting a piece of glass. I loved every minute of stitching this piece and I saved all of my Christmas money to pay for having it framed exactly the way I wanted. Framing is very dear and I know that I should practice some other finishing techniques on the other pieces that are waiting in the closet to be finish finished so that I don’t bankrupt us.
The other WIP that I worked on last weekend was my Beth Russell tapestry piece. This is my oldest project by far (at least ten years?) and I finally made it to the top left corner. I do so hope to finish it this year. John asked me how I wanted to hang it. I said I wanted to frame it….. just to see the look on his face (but also because I’m preparing him mentally for the possibility of framing it?) We’ll see 😉
