When I finished Les Moutons I wasn't sure what to do next. I futzed around with my WIPs, Peacock Tapestry and Finery of Nature...blah. I considered beading Peacock Cypher since Lindsay started hers. Beading...blah. Everything was just blah! All I could come up with was creating more finishing work for myself. Christmas ornaments!
My current stitch is Fa La La, an old Plum Pudding Needleart freebie. I've stitched this a couple times before but always for exchanges or gifts. This one's for me. Stitching over one on Monaco that was boiled in tea so it's now like 26 count.
Already finished is Joy an old Lilybet Designs freebie. I just need the little red JABC star button and it can be finished. Which means I'll have to buy more stuff to justify shipping on a $1.40 button. LOL This is stitched on 28 count Black Jobelan. I ironed black interfacing on the back already.
I've spent hours poking though my stash, finding Christmas ornament designs I want to stitch. Some of these date back to the 1980's when all we knew for ornament finishing were those plastic snap together frames! Remember those? I think I have a bunch downstairs in a craft box. Nowadays we have Vonna Pfeiffer to show us how it's done!
Do you have trouble after finishing a long term project? Tell us!
