I actually have some crafty content for my blog... how novel is that? LOL! I've been working on my BAP for 2015, the Band Sampler from Cross Stitch It... you can see it here in its entirety. So far I've received the charts for January, February and March... and this is January and February.
Okay technically February isn't complete yet as I still have another alphabet to stitch between that big A and Z. My strategy for this one is to add a letter here and there when I have a bit of thread left over after doing another motif. That alphabet is charted for 12 different colors of thread, and I like that variety but I didn't want to think that hard and come up with 12 choices all at once. This way I can add lots of colors as I go.
So far I've used 20 different colors in this piece... all from my stash... aren't I virtuous? I think as this progress I will have to buy some flosses as there are several wide bands that use only one color and I don't want to run out. I'll cross that bridge when I get there.
I do love that giant A and Z... I stitched them in one of my favorite flosses... Gentle Arts Queen Bee... and I did big smyrna crosses. Love that bump!
What I've stitched so far measures a tiny bit over 6" deep and I figure I've got about 34" to go. Like I said it is a BAP. I'm already scoping out places in my house where I can hang this. And yes I am being totally unrealistic in thinking I'll get this done by the end of the year... but one can always dream!
Another Spring-y day here... I saw my grass... it is brown... but it s grass... and that is good. This is my least favorite weekend of the year, the Spring forward time change. I HATE IT!!! Just pick one and leave it alone. I did see this on the internet...
Absolutely, this was my plan! LOL!
