Shame piled on top of shame
For yet another new start. Soul Mates yet another large HAED. I see them and just want to stitch them so badly. So I do. But then I have all this other stuff I also want to stitch badly so everything just goes to hell. I realize I'm a bit insane, but it's my hobby so I guess I should be able to do whatever makes me happy.

I have another batch of progress pictures to share.

Here is The Red Thread. I had planned on finishing it, but was stymied when I ran out of the two threads for the border. So I had to put it away with only two blocks left to do! I knew I was getting low on the one and tried to stretch it by substituting the greens and browns in the blocks themselves, but it simply wasn't enough.

Next is one of my favorite projects, Song of the Dead. It is so wonderfully creepy. Next time around I'll get to finish his face. It will be interesting to see that emerge.

And finally for this post is The Tower of Stony Wood. If I had to pick and absolute favorite, this would probably be it. Things should really start to get interesting this time around -- her face will emerge in this row. Of course it will be a few rotations before that happens, but definitely something to look forward to.

And that wraps up another round. I'm four projects into the new round, but I still can't seem to settle on a new method so I think I might take a break from the rotation and do some Christmas Ornaments. I'm worried about finishing them, though. I'm good at the cross stitch, but other than that I'm not very crafty and everything I do looks like something a 1st grader brings home. But we'll see, maybe it won't be as bad as I think.


Great updates. I have the same problem with Christmas Ornaments. I was only doing them on perforated paper as I was good at finishing those. I did a batch on aida and a friend had me over to her house to show me how to finish them into round ornaments. I learn much better being shown physically than reading the directions.

LOL so true. I think even framing is a fail exercise for me.

Your work is stunning..... I can't believe how many WIP's you have! How on earth do you manage them all?

Wow you have a crazy amount of WIP's. LOL! It's good to know that I'm not alone in my serial starting of projects. I completely understand the compulsion to keep starting new projects, I think all real cross stitchers do! Good luck. xox
