I need some help! Tomorrow is my " stitching day". At the afternoon, after work, I usually sit at my corner on the sofa and I stitch till late in the evening!
Since I have finished-allmost- all the unfinished projects, three hardanger kits - I am trying to learn...- what's next?
Do you ever come to this point? Where there are so many things and you don't know what to choose? And consider that I don't have too much free - happy stitching- time!
So these are my options:
Your opinion, please?
I think to learn new stitches is always interesting - then to see if you can use them in different ways.
I have favourite stitches that I think are more versatile than others, but that could just be because I like them so they are used more frequently, thus the results are better for the practice!
Whatever you choose, choose something you feel you will enjoy and you won't get bored so easily :)
I finally started the cushion! Not boring with a lot of new stitches!
Thanks for answering!
Unless you have a deadline or a pressing reason for working a particular project, I say do the one that is calling your name the loudest :-)
Well, I Looove to learn so I did start the cushion, which has a lot of new stitches - pulled thread, drawn thread, satin stitch! It seems to me like a sampler so in a way I have compined option 1 and 2! That makes me happy, Sharon, and indeed called my name real loud, Carol- Ann!
And, I didn't "bury" the cross stitch Sibille, I leave it for the times that I am very tierd and not focused enough to try something new, because unfortunatelly there are and these days! (I should call them "my cross stitcing days!")
Thank you all ladies for your answers!
Well done! Anna
Sounds like a plan, Anna :-) We shall look forward to seeing the results.
I am a great self disciplinarian when it comes to finishing things so I would finish the tablecloth!!
I do understand about having so many new ideas to try out that it is hard to pick one to start with. When this happens, I sit in my rocking chair with half my mind watching TV, and the other half looking at the prospective projects. This may go on for a day or 2. Eventually one of the projects calls to me more strongly than the other. And sometimes I will start 2 projects: one in which I try to use the best artistry I can achieve, and the other something I already know, for those days when I'm too tired to think.
Lorelei, I finally found it convenient for me to work many projects at the same time! Sometimes it's a little bit creazy but I never get bored! Imagine that this October I learned knitting too, so I have things to do in stitching and things to do in knitting!
But since I don't like unfinished work I do keep a list! I try to finish something in my list in order to start something new!
The idea of a list is appealing. I keep a folder of ideas and then refer to it when I am ready for a new project. Somehow the folder gets thicker and thicker...I am sure your list gets longer too.
