Wow, four straight days of posts...
That is amazing for me!
I have to admit that I probably won't be able to keep this pace, but I plan to enjoy it, while it lasts.
So, I have some updates on my Scooby Doo project...
Three complete characters all done!
(I am having a lot of fun working on this project.)
I can't wait to finish it. I think it will look adorable.
(Note to self, taking pictures at night, not a good idea! Picture taking definitely works better in the daylight, with lots of light.)
I started a new project last night...
I am going to try my hand at making a biscornu!
I've adored the different biscornu patterns and finished projects, but I never thought I could make one. I figured they were sewn together and sewing is not one of my strong suits. (Honestly, I can't sew at all, not even a button.)
But, I looked through a couple tutorials and thought I would give it a try.
(I'm crossing my fingers, hoping it will turn out all right.)
I had picked out one pattern to try, but of course, I ended up buying 4 new patterns. (I just can't help myself.)
I decided to start with an easy one, all whole stitches...
Of course, I've all ready made a mistake and had to pull out half my stitches. (That's what I get for stitching when I'm tired.)
Anyway, I am excited to get it all stitched up!
(If you would to the find this pattern, you can get it at The Floss Box.)
Since I decided to start a new project, I had to search through my floss collection...
So, I decided to pull out all my cross stitch stuff.
(I've been seeing so many fellow stitchers posting about their stashes, so I thought I would join in the fun!)
I couldn't get over all the stuff I had! I've never pulled it all out like this before, so I was quite surprised.
In my defense, not all the stuff is mine. Some of it was my mom's collection, which I inherited.
With all this stuff, I have a question for my fellow stitchers...
How do you de-stash?
I would like to get rid of a few charts and books, but I'm not sure how to go about it...
I really don't care to sell the stuff on Ebay, so I'm at a loss of what to do.
Any tips or ideas would be great!
Well, I believe I have procrastinated cleaning my house for long enough...
Hope everyone has a great day and a fantastic upcoming week!
