Seeing Things

On Sunday, I decided to stitch another thing for my Thing-a-Day. There was a little problem. This project--a lovely Sampler Girl Jane Austen freebie--comes with the vague color code including "red, blue, gold, and teal." I chose Weeks' Turkish Red and Chesapeake and GAST Deep Sea. The gold I chose is a random yellow Loose Thread. Unfortunately, as you can see I ran out of Turkish Red. Maybe stitching projects aren't a good fit for Thing-a-Day.



Yesterday, I worked on a little card. I stamped the flowers on the edge of the card and fussy cut them. (It's not perfect--I'm looking at that black border--because I lent my paper cutter to my cousin on Sunday.) I think I will use this technique again.



Unfortunately, I do so many of my things at night, we're always behind in the reveal. So here's some wet stuff on the workbench. I have been hoarding the supplies for this wreath for almost two years. I think this Thing-a-Day is going to help me clear out the craft room as much as my 15 minutes a day is!

You are really buzzing along on the thing a day stuff! I think the stitching is cute - wish I had some turkish red to loan you. The crd and the other snowflake thingies are darling.

No turkish red here or I would send it right over!

The card is cute and I can't wait to see what is in store for the flakes!

Oh boy! We have 22 inches of snow and storm #2 is well under way, so a little sea bathing would set me up forever too! You are making great progress on your Thing-a-day things.

You sure are keeping busy...and getting a lot done! Your projects look great!

I could send you some Turkish Red, but I'm betting we won't have mail pick up today. We're gonna need sled dogs to get in and out of here. What's the rest of the saying?

Love these Thing-a-Day projects. Doesn't it make you feel productive?

Oooh, sucks to run out thread mid-stitch. But, I do love that SG freebie. I need to stitch it. And your snowflake wreath is gonna be so cute! I can't wait to see a finish. My progress and finishes are always on delay too, because it takes me a while to get to photographing and editing the photos. Ugh!

Your projects look great!

Bummer on running out of thread. I hope you won't run into any dye lot issues, but Weeks and Gentle Arts seem to be pretty stable with their lots, from what I've seen. You were so close...
