The third weekend of every month is very exciting here at Nerd Central because this is the time that I do nothing but cross stitch.
For more information, and to join in the fun, please go check out Random Ramblings who started this wonderful idea.
Yesterday I had to FINALLY get my messy space organized a bit better and even took a picture of Nerd Central Command Center for your amusement.
Plenty of light, quite a bit of work space with easy accessibility to make crafting fun. I also had to create a space to be able to film an instructional video with my girlfriend L next weekend.
The space isn't complete yet since much of my crafty stuff is still in totes and boxes, but only because I cannot make up my mind on how I wish to organize it all. Shelves with baskets? If so, what kind of shelving and what kind of baskets? Ikea? HGTV has some interesting ideas but they do not really appeal to me. Am I being too picky? I'm looking for simple, open and easy to get to. Hopefully it will come to me in a dream.
For now, my mismatched eclectic mish-mash is VERY workable for me. If you have ideas for shelving and such, please share!
IHSW is upon us once again and for this weekend I will be working on the Celtic Goddess "Project 2" and continuing work on "Joys of My Garden Leaflet".
An update on where we are right now with both projects:
This is page one of the pattern for Celtic Goddess. Most of the work that was completed on this was done last month during IHSW. I expect I'll finish page one and move on to the next this time around.
I'm thinking I'd like to go straight down the pattern instead of left to right, thoughts?
Almost completed is the third pattern from "Joys of My Garden" called "Idle Flight"
I was looking at the pattern last night, and very clearly written in a box above the color chart are the words "Note: Work entire design using one strand of thread"
I blame the show I've been watching while stitching. "Top of the Lake" is very engrossing and I have had to rip out stitching a few times because I miscounted due to being distracted by the show.
Sunday's update on what has been finished will be exciting for so many of us who participate! I am looking forward to checking out what others have accomplished :D
Until next time.....
