First up, WIPs:
Yes, this is a terrible photo of the Beautiful Sea Quaker SAL by Ship's Manor. I'm working on the lower left corner and trying to be zen about the fact that my second skein of the blue (ordered later) is wildly different from the rest of the border. Looking back at progress photos in the FB group, it seems like the current skein is correct for this color and my initial one was really dull. I have a third skein as well so I could redo the entire border if I wanted to, but... no one wants to redo that much. Ugh.
Next up, Cirque des Carreaux! I reached the corner of the design and will be working down pages one and two once I pick this one up again.
Now, new starts because I DO WHAT I WANT:
The very popular Coffee Quaker by Heartstring Samplery! This was the first Belfast project I worked on after getting used to the 40ct on Cirque and whooooa, 32ct seems HUGE now. I feel like I'm stitching on the large print edition of something, haha. Also amazed at how quickly thread gets eaten up when stitching with two strands.
Honestly not really feeling this one. Maybe it's the shock of the fabric count change or something. Or maybe it's all the brown, heh.
I also started Fibery Friends Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery! This is even huger, 28ct and evenweave to boot (I'm a linen girl through and through, but this color worked really well and it was in my stash so yeah), so it's a bit of a challenge. I haven't really worked on this since starting it, but I'll probably pick it up again once I catch up on the Beautiful Sea SAL.
Making this for my wife the obsessive knitter, obviously. :p
Oh, one more little (ha) project - winding up a full set of DMC floss:
About halfway done! This is one side of a double-sided box that's big enough to hold the entire set of solid colors, plus a bit extra. Maybe I can fit the nice variegated DMC in here too...
Hmm, I feel like I haven't been stitching much but I guess I have! Alas, that won't continue because:
RIP all my free time FOREVER.
