SBQ: Challenging

Barbara is right. Things have been crazy around here lately. The cold that made me hoarse at MD Sheep and Wool hasn't really let up. I'm better and worse, and right now I'm in a worse. I guess I should go to the doctor, but sheesh, I have too many other things to do. A friend is in town from Los Angeles this week, and there is not one night I have available to see her. That just doesn't seem right. Next week I have to get ready for the Vegas invasion which will be here in just a week. When do I get some rest?

I haven't answered an SBQ in a hound's age: What has been your most challenging project and why? I think it would be my cousin's wedding sampler. It had a billion color changes and loads of blended needles. I thought I would lose my mind! It wasn't particularly difficult stitching, but I am really impatient. (I really should try to get a photo of that one.) The most challenging project I'm currently working on would probably be the marquoir. It's huge, and I'm working on 40 count fabric. My eyes are about 20 years older than they were when I first started stitching. I think the real difficulty of this project, though, is just its giantness.

I'm with you on the giantness of projects. My Tesori is feeling a little intimidating because of its size.

My daughter's birth sampler has been my bugaboo of a project. She's 3 and it still isn't finished because I just "had" to make something totally original for her....
