When 2009 started I was aware that January was going to be a short month (just 4 weeks to go to work and then leave for the US). Despite that knowledge, I still thought I could stitch up a storm. As we’re more than half way through January, I have come to realize that the big storm is not going to be as big as I thought it could be. I am not complaining about what I have accomplished so far, as a matter of fact, I think I did quite good. But I had really hoped to get Willy stitched before I left. Alas, I don’t think that’s going to happen.
Here’s how far I am. Sorry the picture isn’t better, but I took this during the evening.
Her body has been stitched and I am working on her scarf. This project is a lot fun, in great part because of all the wonderful Weeks Dye Works colors that are used. They are so cheerful and I love how they work with the fabric. I think that Willy will come with me to the US and I might be able to have her done by the time I get back. During market (Nashville) we hardly get to stitch at all, but I am hoping that while being in Dallas, we’ll have some serious stitching time :).
