Easter Weekend

Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate. I took the opportunity to do lots of stitching. I had some vacation days that I needed to take before the end of April and decided to make the long weekend a little longer. I spent all that time on Fandango.


As you can see I got all my squares done. I still have a lot of satin stitching to do, most of what is left involves a lot of what I call stop and go (which I dislike) and my fingers have started to itch to work on something else. What? I don't know, cause I certainly didn't take out any of my WIPs for a change of pace. I felt like starting something new but felt terrible about it. So instead, I spent Saturday night shopping for beads and Sunday lazing around with my tablet.

I booked another long weekend and I'm hoping to get more done. But really, what I'm hoping for is good weather to spend it outside. I'm starting to get stir crazy. There are 48 days left till my vacation.

  2. That piece is really lovely! Stop and go stitching can be kind of a drag; I understand your reluctance to continue. But the finished product is going to be gorgeous!

  3. Yes, stop and go is about the most frustrating. Do something else for a while and go back to it refreshed!

  4. Fandango is looking so gooooooood! I have been doing a little bit of Satin stitching on a current project I cannot show because it is a gift, but I'm confident I will be pretty good at it by the time I'm done :D
