A Critical Point

It has been a pretty quiet day so far around here. The kids slept in this morning since they stayed up late last night. That left me able to clean the house and do the laundry. At least it is all done and I don't have to do anything tomorrow! I am planning on not doing anything at all tomorrow..unless of course I want to...lol!

I have been so happy to work on Geisha these past few days because of all her bright colors! This pattern is fairly easy one to stitch. There are a good amount of quarter stitches but there are only 3 sets of blended colors! There is a lot of backstitching to do so I am sure that will maker her even prettier!

I worked a tiny bit on the finishing for the freebie exchange. So far, I am loving how it is turning out. Right now I am at a critical point of where I could easily mess it up and no way to fix a mistake if it happened. Unfortunately, I have a headache coming on so I have placed it aside for now. It's nothing bad, just one over one stitching. Guess I can say that..doesn't give too much away:)

If I get the chance to stitch later, I am planning on starting the Britty Puppy stocking. It is easy to stitch and shouldn't hurt my eyes since I am using 28 count fabric. :) However, it could easily change if I get the chance to run by my LNS tonight. I got an email the other day that my dragon stocking pattern is here. I can't wait to start on that one! All depends on the if it is raining or not. I don't like to drive in the rain. Either way, looks like a new start tonight for me:)

Have a good night!

Geisha will just "Pop" so much when you start to do the backstitching on her.

Your Geisha is looking beautiful, such lovely colors. Good luck on the finishing of your one project. Looking forward to seeing your finish when you can post it, as well as seeing the start of your dragon stocking.

Hopefully your headache has passed and you're feeling much better so you can enjoy your stitching and your eyes won't bother you.

Your Geisha looks fabulous, adding backstitching will really make her pop. I love it when the charts aren’t too complicated, it makes things go so quick. You have so many stockings to do! I’ll send mine to you as well LOL!
