I am almost done kitting up the projects I envision I can stitch during my two weeks off from work. The operative word here is envision, I am making no promises over what will really be stitched during these 17 days but at least I am giving it a try. A more detailed list of my Christmas stitching box will follow soon.
Anyway, while kitting up a specific project, I found out that during the past 2 or 3 years I must have liked Weeks Dye Works’ Sweet Potato very much. I had not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, but SIX skeins of this particular color. Can you believe that? I have no clue for which projects I used these skeins and the irony of it is, that for this project I probably need just one yard or so. That won’t make a big dent in my Sweet Potato stash :). Of course in my quite considerable WDW stash, I couldn’t find two of the colors I needed. Go figure. Lesson of today: having plenty of Sweet Potato won’t mean you have a completely kitted project LOL.
And just in case you are not in the possession of 6 skeins of Sweet Potato, this is what the color looks like:
My Christmas box is stacked with projects that I have either started last year and would love to finish or projects that have been screaming my name for too long. Not to mention all these great Christmas/winter charts that keep coming out. This is definitely my favorite season to stitch for.
I found this great free graph on Sue Hillis her weblog. Do check it out, it’s too cute.
Yo Ho Ho Ho, I can envision another project being added to my Christmas box.
I hope to be able to show some stitching pics in the next couple of days. I finished my mystery project for December, but it will take a while before I can show it. And with the shops newsletter going out tomorrow, I have been busy doing other stuff :).
Stay warm, drink a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the season.
