I have to admit that I haven't been very good this weekend. I already told you about lots of the things that keep me from stitching at the moment, and even though I got to join my girls in the hangout for some much appreciated girl time, I didn't get a whole lot done. The best I can show you is my progress on Lady & the Tramp, which has now been on the go for almost exactly one month - not bad at all if you consider anything else I had going on!
Then came yesterday, and I was really determined to work on PT and eventually get this next border section done in April. So I put in a few stitches here and a few stitches there...and just couldn't get into it. At all. So I decided that it would probably be for the best to put PT away for a while. It's not forgotten, and I wont't let it become one of these oldold UFOs - I'll just try a few stitches here and there and hope that eventually, I'll feel like completing this endless border.
So what now? Of course I could have been a good girl and work on one of my WIPs, and maybe I would have, but my grandma kind of convinced me to start something else. Not like I didn't want to anyway. You see (and with that, let's just include my SFS-post here as well, I'll be too busy this week to think of buying stuff anyway), I really wanted to be good this month, but then I made a big mistake and went over to ebay. And there was this woman who apparently bought kits, used only the fabric, than resold the pattern and the floss, and I was lucky to get Joan Elliott's 'Angel of Cross Stitch' this way for only 4.28€ ($5.91).
I thought I would be safe to not start it yet because, well, no fabric (I originally wanted to get something colored or with some kind of pattern on it or something, but upon realizing that all that white in her wings and shirt and apron isn't stitchted but just the background shining through, I decided to stick with white), but then I realized that I did, in fact, have the most perfect fabric for it: remember this white 28ct evenweave I originally got for The Enchanter until I figured out where to buy the perfect fabric? That one is the perfect replacement for the 14ct white aida missing from the kit. So...I started it yesterday. Found out the fabric is awefully soft, so I have to be really careful as to not disort it while stitching (don't know what brand that's supposed to be anyway...), but if I am, it turns out just gorgeous. So...looks like more border stitching for the time being (I wont cut the fabric before finishing the upper border so know exactly how much I need), but at least this one is much simpler than the one on PT (at least I think/hope so).
