I haven’t posted anything since last Saturday because I’ve only been working on two things this entire time:
Class for Work
Fox and Rabbit’s 2022 MSAL – Changing Seasons
When December’s design dropped on 1 December, I was like
“OMG!! It’s so big, there’s so much to do!!”
Then, I panicked
“What colors am I going to use?! How do I choose??”
I walked away to calm down, and I came back an hour later to study the design a bit closer. I became a mumbler
“Well, this could work. I could do yellow here. No, that would be better over here.”
Eventually, I chose a course of action and a couple of colors, and I started work on December right after I finished the last little bit on November.
My count was off on the left so I had to do a bit of finagling to try to get the flower to line up properly. I think I did okay.
Because my outside frame is off from the inside frame, I decided to start in the corners and work towards the center of each side. This will also keep me from getting bored doing something repetitious. Just using a different color will help me stay focused. The above is work I’ve done since December 1 until today, December 3. I’m not rushing to finish this as this is the last bit in the design.
I am glad it’s not the Name/Date design I was dreading, and I’m also glad it’s not more detailed like the center. Still, there’s a lot of stitching still left to get done.
I’ll be focusing on this project until I get it done because it’s the last project of the year I want to get done. Despite the size of the overall piece and all the mistakes I’ve made in creating it, I still am happy I decided to do this project.
I’ve joined a Blackwork SAL that will last the entire 2023. It’s from Peppermint Purple, and I think it will be a great learning experience for me.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!
