Leaf

I had to take FIL to the doctor again today so I brought a small piece to work on waiting. I started Leaf from Bent Creek. Last night when I gathered the floss for it I realized I was missing DMC 3031 but I decided to go ahead and start it. I will be in town this weekend so I will just pick it up then.

I have to confess that Woodland Faerie is an official UFO for me. I tried to work on her today but soon found myself trying to find reasons to put her away. I realized that I needed to take a break from her when I decided that the kitchen floor needed to be mopped. It wasn't that the floor needed mopped but that I would rather mop the floor than stitch on her! It felt good to put her away in a drawer and not worry about her for awhile.

So what will I work on next? I am not sure...lol. I had fun with the biscornu yesterday so I might work on some small projects for a bit. Just have to see what screams at me:)

Thanks for all your wonderful comments on the biscornu!

Super duper fast on the biscornu....with 3 kids and still fast as the Japanese bullet train. I must say, I'm really impressed.

I like that BC Leaf...I'm off to take a whole pic look at it.

You've made a good start on Leaf. Don't worry about Woodland Faerie I'm sure she'll start calling to you soon and you'll be back to working on her.

You have a lot finished very quickly. I have LEAF in my stash too. Love those simple projects.

You know when you want to mop the floor over stitching? NOT GOOD! LOL

Cute start! It's always better to put something away than to force yourself to stitch on it.

Isabelle said...

What a cute design! I totally agree with what everyone has already said about WF :)

Very good start, Dawn.

Leaf is looking lovely, nice start. As to woodland fairy, yup I'd agree if you want to mop the floor instead and it really doesn't need it, it is time to start a new project. :)

YOur new project is going to be lovely.

TW's can be overwhelming at times, take a break at some point you'll be ready to get back to WF.

Thank you so much for all your support though my cancer scare it meant a lot to me!

I really like Bent Creek, this is a great one. Good start!

I understand why you are putting Woodland Fairy away. Those big ones take so much effort it's good to put them aside sometimes so you can focus on other things :)
