The Prairie Schooler project was kitted up with 25 ct Floba and honestly I don't think that fabric is right for the project. It just wasn't speaking to me any more. I still love the Sheepish Dutch Alphabet, but I never could settle on a floss color for it and I wasn't crazy about the fabric for it either, just a scrap of some odd thing from my stash that happened to be almost the right size. The M Designs letter was going to be a gift for a friend and I've since changed my mind. (About the gift, not the friend!) The SGD patchwork project is a class kit that I bought on a whim and while I'd like to stitch it someday, I don't think it will be anytime soon.
I also spent some time updating my project lists. I have everything listed in a Word document with a MIOM supplement on a spreadsheet. In theory it is very organized but it feels like a mess. (Someday I'm going to develop my very own stash organization software. It will do absolutely everything I could ever want or need. Keep your nose pressed to the glass, because that's the same day you'll see a pig fly past your window.)
So on Monday after spending a great deal of time sorting, organizing, taking notes and generally turning my living room and office into a war zone, I started the Notebook Sampler by Birds of a Feather.
I'm stitching on the 36 ct fabric notebook cover that came with the kit using WDW Crimson and GAST Buttermilk. Getting the design properly centered has been downright painful. I think I need to rip out what I have done and move it one stitch to the left. It is hard to tell, because with the little spiral notebook in there, the center "moves". I'm sure that makes no sense, but what my eye sees does not agree with my measuring tape. Don't you hate that?
It was a Monday, I started something, and now I can move on. I hope things go more smoothly next Monday!
