Crazy January Challenge Day 5 - With My Needle "Bunnies in the Garden" stitched on 32 count Summer Khaki with Olde Willow Stitchery floss. I am going to follow the general instructions for placement of the pieces on the linen, but I'm going to squish them together a bit and try not to waste so much fabric. I will probably also do something a little different with the needlepage to make it more useful for me. I have a long way to go before that needs to be decided. There isn't anything about this project that I don't love. With each new project I keep asking myself, why didn't I start this sooner?
Here are a few flowers.
And here is the whole piece of fabric. It is huge!
I am starting to develop storage issues. Fabric on q-snaps takes up more space. Some projects need to be stored flat so I don't undo an evening of ironing. I am solving that dilemma by hanging a few starts in the closet. Sticky-notes have been added to the project bags to remind me where they are hiding. I would like to believe that I could remember without the sticky-notes but I know better. I recently lost a tote bag for several weeks and found it hanging on a hanger in the coat closet. That closet was searched no less than 5 times and we never saw the bag. It did not occur to either of us that it might be hanging in front of our eyes. Who hangs a tote bag on a hanger? That would be me, apparently.
I have some time this afternoon so I may start "Sweet Pea Sampler" by The Needle's Notion. It is the largest in my lot of 15 new projects and I think today is the day.
