*wanders out of a cloud of pollen*
SooooOOooo...where were we?
Ah, yes, March Madness! That thing where I work on a different project each day, and then, like, immediately blog about it.
I left off, what, over a week ago? I had swapped this project for a wildcard, and ended up not making that much progress...these are Elfine's Socks.
The next pull was ANOTHER MAGIC WILDCARD. I really dithered about what to pick...I did want to work on Les Rubans, or Sapphire Star, but I didn't know what I'd do if I pulled those later on. So I picked a totally random project that I ran across while searching for something, that I realized hadn't made it into the Sparkly Compote of Decree!
Annabelle, and I really meant to get the chart picture in there, but, POLLEN BRAIN. What was I saying? Oh yeah, click that link to see what the fuzzy bunny will look like. I'm doing the stand-up version, in case you couldn't tell, so I'm stitching with lovely soft alpaca fibers. I got some fuzz and most of that flower done...pretty good for one night for me!
The next day, in a fit of irony, the SCOD coughed up...Les Rubans!!
WIPocalypse page. If you want to see closeups of what that ribbon looks like, take a look here. Ribbon one is in two pieces ('cause it's "woven" over and under other ribbons); I'm done with the large piece and almost finished the little one.
I think I missed a day in here, because I can't figure out what I worked on on Wednesday. I did work awfully late that night.... Hmmm, why can't I remember? OH YEAH, POLLEN BRAIN.
Thursday I drew YET ANOTHER WILDCARD!! Are you serious, SCOD??? To avoid having to make a decision about which of my WIPs to stitch, I just started something new. DILEMMA SOLVED, LOL! Actually, in past Marches, I have started new things for wildcard picks as a matter of course. Plus, there is a serious lack of squirrel WIPs up in this place.
Teresa, and I got the linen and fibers for it at The Attic when I went for the Chocolat weekend. I had bought the blue on the right before, but then I found the one on the left at the Attic and immediately decided to stitch with that! What's crazy is they are THE SAME COLOR (yes, really this time). I was thinking I'd be able to do one strand over two on the 32-count, but I didn't like the coverage. Now I'm slightly worried that I'll run out, but I am forming a plan in the back of my mind to incorporate the lighter blue if need be. I'm also a little freaked out by how close to the edge I'm getting. I knew it would be tight, but...!! I stitched really late that night because I needed there to be at least one squirrel on the linen!!
The next day I worked on Peacock Tapestry.
Aaaand, speaking of the WIPocalypse list, the next day my Origami Turtle popped out of the SCOD (no, really, I drew it out...it's OK, the SCOD still has not spontaneously come to life despite my literary personification.)
