Before I start yacking about this and that, I'd like to take a moment to wish you a Very Happy Valentines day! Will you do anything special today? Not me...I have a "date" with a dusting cloth and vacuum cleaner, however...those precious grandbabies are arriving on Monday and I've been working to get everything all spiffed up for them. There are still a few other things to get done, but the majority of what needed to be done is now behind me. I am really excited at this point, that their arrival day is almost here~it's been a VERY long seven months since we last saw them. Boy, do we have loads of kissing and hugging time to make up for, too. And of course, we can't wait to see mommy and daddy of Triplets too. :-) They have all been missed terribly.
I do think that my stitching time will be put on hold during the time their all here...would be rather rude I think, to haul it out when we should just be enjoying the time we'll have together. Tee Hee There will be plenty of stitching time once again, after they've left for home. Besides, playing with the girls sounds way more fun to me right now...I am so looking forward to that and taking a billion and one pictures/video's of them, too.
I do have some progress pictures to share of my Dimensions piece...woohoo! I have to say, this has been an absolute gem to work on. So much of the stitching thus far has been pretty much half cross stitch. Do you realize how much faster you can stitch when you only have to stitch half of the X ? LOL It calls for various numbers of threads too. Anywhere from two to four at a time, so far. And, lots of blended color's. But oh, what a beautiful effect its giving off. I'm contemplating doing the outline detail as I get complete sections finished...we'll see. I typically leave that for last but this piece is larger, so it might just be wise to do it as I do the regular stitching. Here is my progress.....
There is still loads of stitching to look forward to, but I am so enjoying working on it. I think the color details are just awesome.
Have a most wonderful weekend, and as always, thank you so much for the comments you leave. I appreciate them more than you will ever know.Happy stitching,
