Productive Weekend

January 16, 2006

In keeping with my New Year’s Resolution to finish projects, I completed three pieces this weekend.

First was my Chicago Needlepoint. The hardest part of this project was figuring out the right stitch for the water. I tried many stitches and a couple of different kinds of threads. My main problem was finidhing a stitch and thread that would cover the workds “Chicago Harbor” which were painted in the water in the bottom of the canvas. I didn’t think it was necessary so I stitched over it.

My second project was my reindeer ornament. He is so cute. He was almost done I had to finish the tree and the reindeer’s scarf. In hind sight, I would have made the scarf shorter and added some fringe to the end of it, but I’ll keep that idea for a future project.

The last piece I finished was a project I started in June. It’s a small piece but tedious. It had a lot of outlining. In addition to finishing the stitching, I also framed it this weekend.

Can I buy a new project yet?
