In 2002 I loved the work of Paula Vaughn and my grandma very kindly bought me the Paula Vaughn cross stitch book “A Quilt for All Seasons”. I immediately started on the January one. I’m not sure when exactly this was, but the project then languished on a shelf in my spare room for twelve years after I moved into my condo. Last year I heard about this SAL and decided it may help me actually get this project finished.
This is where I was last update:
And this is where I am now:
I love my new way of tackling my stitching. I actually pick an object to stitch so this time it was the snow out the window. It lets me feel accomplishment and helps to divide up the work and to see progress. In the past I haven’t really thought of what I was stitching, just put stitches in.
In the corner of the photo you will just glimpse my new needle holder, which I love!!! It is so nice not to have to try and put my needle through the holes of the Aida cloth! I should have bought one years ago! I also like my new stitching bag which I showed in the last update, but wish it had some pockets inside so that I could keep the threads separated by number easier. This project takes so many threads! I’m thinking I’d like to try a single colour project.
Well that’s it for me. Make sure you check out the other stitchers as there are so many gorgeous projects and such variety that there is sure to be something you find inspiring.
