At EGA last month we received a small surface embroidered heart to stitch. This month we had a lesson in lacing that piece onto mat board. It is nice to get these little projects that teach us something new and can be completed so quickly. And I have even more admiration for the likes of Mary Corbit and surface embroidery. With my boo-boo finger, I didn't' get too far on the assembly portion. Dag Nabbit! Frustrating for sure.
On a better note, I think I finally have the right magnification for stitching. I was at a friend's and I commented that I had been struggling to focus, changing glasses, adding clips-ons, and still couldn't seem to find the right cheaters. I was thinking I needed to go to the eye doctor. She passed me her 4.0's and I put them on, looked at my stitching and think I heard angles sing. Came home, logged on to Amazon and ordered a four-pack that very night.
Before my mishap, I did manage a teeny tiny bit of stitching on Halloween Quaker done. I am still enjoying this piece. Funny how it is all relative. There was a time when I would have thought this was a big piece. Compared to Corsica River, everything else is small. My cut finger doesn't account totally for nary a stitch on Corsica River these past two weeks.....not the way to go if I want to catch up. Oh well.....
Now I have a thought provoking question for you. Are you a process stitcher or a product stitcher? Do you enjoy the process of stitching a piece or do you like completing a piece and having a finished product? And my question to myself is.......what am I going to do all weekend when I can't stitch. I hope not get into other trouble. First thing may be to wrap the edges of my LoRan board with painters tape.
Thanks for stopping by and keep on stitching!
