I think I am moving this piece on in a good way, a positive even innovative way. What do you think? It is the same yet different if you know what I mean. It is fascinating how the addition of only a single element can change something so drastically. The stitches are the same, the cloth the same, the colour the same, the inspiration the same, yet adding the fold, pockets and hooks and eyes has changed even this tiny section dramatically. These are only tacked at the moment so please ignore any loose or straggling threads,
I am going to continue with the hook and eye strip. I am going to lay it next to each section that is already finished. I am going to doodle and play wirth arrangement and then if all goes to plan I will have a jigsaw puzzle of pieces which will hopefully fit into a collection of cushions. Yes, a collection, four to be exact, again different yet the same, linked by colour and stitch.
Now I've noticed a blogging variation going on have you? Some people are shut down already for christmas. Some hardy, dedicated souls are doing blog advents, every day commitments, I take my hat off to you, well done. Then there are people like me, no plan, no schedule , just waffling on as the need takes them. Truth be told I am scared to take a break, my stats will drop like a stone and I am SOOOO stat obsessed that I need some kind of medication. Don't be fooled and start thinking ''oh Karen must be all ready for christmas, she is so organised she can do yuletide and continue to stitch and waffle''. Well oh no she can't. I am so behind with my festivity preparations that I am getting palpitations. I will be last minute shopping christmas eve the way I'm going. I was going to sign off for the holidays today, the thought crept into my subconscious as I worried over how much I still have to do for the holidays but hey....if you take it down to the bare bones, the actual hours and minutes needed to accomplish everything then it doesn't feel too daunting. Then subtract sleeping and eating and you have even more time....so you will have to put up with me just a little longer before I put my santa hat on!!
