Have you ever misplaced a project? Usually I put a WIP away in a bag and the bag gets stashed away somewhere - out of sight, out of mind. But last month one of my projects went AWOL.
After returning home from Boise over the Thanksgiving weekend, I sat down to work on December in the Joyful World SAL. I was closing in on a finish so I was excited to get back to work. Problem was, I couldn't find the project in the bag I took along on the trip. I searched all over and asked my SIL if I had left it there, but it wasn't there. Christmas activities took over so I just got busy with that and thought, it'll surely show up one of these days.
Thankfully when I was prepping the car to get some of my grandkids yesterday, I found it under the back seat! What a relief! So I put in a few stitches last night.
I had some placement issues in the design, but it doesn't bother me enough to pull out any stitches. What is bothering me is the white dove not showing up very well. I did a little backstitching with gray, but wasn't happy with that either. Perhaps I'll experiment with a couple of other colors and restitch it. Hmmm . . .
A Spot of Winter is coming along too. Drawn Thread designs are such a joy to me as I really enjoy the specialty stitches. I did get a little confused on one of the eyelet stitches so a couple of them will be ripped out and redone.
The colors accurately reflect what I see out my window these days. Today the sun is shining and the sky is clear, so that means the temperatures are really cold - it was 1F when I woke up this morning. So the snow hasn't had a chance to melt, although the roads have been cleared pretty well. At least we don't have the record levels of snow that our family in Boise is having to deal with!
I hope my N. American friends are staying warm and dry. My son is flying home today from a visit to Nashville, TN, so I hope he doesn't have any weather delays - it's been snowing in Denver today!
Make it a good stitchy day!
