I did get six squares finished this week, all little floral wreaths. Simple stitching, but pretty designs. When I started this project I was restricting myself to certain color threads that I thought would look good on the dyed fabric. No purples, oranges, pink. etc. But recently I decided that any color thread will work because it is the fabric that ties everything together. I ordered some new colors from DMC and they came in two days. I was surprised because they are in Canada and it usually takes at least a week, but apparently they have a warehouse in New Jersey because that's where these come. Free shipping for orders over $30 (easy to do).
I also decided that, as much as I enjoy making these, I am going to slow down and only do what I can while watching nightly TV. I have mostly abandoned my other hobbies/crafts. You know that I like to make greeting cards and I haven't made any in weeks. You may recall the cute little origami dresses I made awhile back. Well all but one of those are gone. I like to send birthday cards, get well, thinking of you, sympathy, etc. Since I got into card making, I only send my handmade. I am definitely carving out some time for that this week.
I make my own Christmas cards, too (crazy, I know) and last year I sent 50 and started making them in August. I have not started yet this year.
And then I have a quilt to free-motion quilt for a friend and I have to get ready for an exhibit in September. It is a group show and I only have to do one, but I am usually farther along by now.
I am having some of my landscaping done over this Fall and there will be two new Hydrangea bushes, among other things.
I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
