Usually when International Hermit Stitch Weekend hits, we girlies have what is called the "Saturday Hangout" so we can all video chat. We did it Saturday, but then again today and I'll be opening it up
again tomorrow since I do have the day off and can get some face time with our missing girl (she was in Texas) and maybe our other missing girl (who is in Germany) and maybe some voice from our other girl in Arizona. I hope!
That happened three times.
Today, instead of doing that ripping stuff, I decided that I would do a Sunday Start and work on the Ornaments of the month pattern that Magical has up on our website for NCCIH. I found a nice scrap of 28 ct Monaco lurking in my fabric stash, pulled the three colors of floss and began creating the cutest and smallest thing I could create....that part was all accidental, but so cute!
I couldn't stop giggling it was so darn cute! 2 over 1 for the cross stitching, 1 strand for the blackwork and there you have it!
My thought is to make a garland as suggested by Magical but I wanted it to be tiny...and so it is.
Another successful tiny finish for this month and I do believe I have 3 of the five goals for this month completed. How can I make this month better? Maybe two more finishes....maybe.
Look at the date! Still two whole weeks left in January! This five goal thing is really quite wonderful. And now that I feel entirely too full of myself, I shall get back to stitching (and possibly ripping more) on Skeleton Crew. It doesn't matter if I have to keep ripping a bit here and there, it is still a wonderful project, so happily I go!
Until next time!
