ES and SBQ of the Week


It is sad to say but I have hardly stitched at all this week. Partly because I have been busy but mainly because I am bored of my 2 WIP's (Topaz & Egyptian) right now! The answer to the problem for me is to start a new project. However, that is where my dilemma starts....what do I start on?!

Here is my progress on Egyptian Sampler for this week.

This week's SBQ was suggested by Loretta and is:

Do you have any projects that you have scrapped and started over? What made you start over from scratch?

I can think of 2 pieces I have started over from the beginning. One is Woodland Fairie by TW and the other is Geisha by Nanci Rossi. I actually started Woodland Fairie completely over 2 times before I finished her. The first time I instead of stitching 1/1 on her arm I stitched it 2/2. The second time I didn't have the pattern centered right and ended up cutting up the fabric I was so frustrated. Geisha I only started over once due to a kitty catastrophe.

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

I would start a little quickie project to take a break from ES and then you'll have fresh eyes for the big projects.

ES looks great!

ES is looking great, Dawn.

I have so many on the go as i do get bored too, so i have enough to choose from, though mostly are quite small but not small enough to finish in one evening.

ES is looking brilliant!

Maybe you should start a screaming rotation? That way you'll always have a range to stitch on and never get bored!
