This past week....

Well last Sunday I was in a car accident first thing in the morning. Of course it completely ruined my whole day...actually my whole week. I planned on spending Sunday working on the wording for my current project, but after the accident I couldn't do anything. Fortunately, the week progressed well and I am almost finished with the wording. On to the border and then I will be able to complete my project. I am still toying with how I want to finish the project. I was thinking of turning it into a stitchers notebook. The design on the front, poem on the back, wrought by on the binder and inside a place for thread holders, pin cushion and practice stitches. I am still contemplating how I want to finish the project. This is turning out to be a lot of fun and I am amazed at how the design has evolved as I have worked on the project and modified along the way. I have really enjoyed the process.

The weather has been so cold here and my little boy has had a cold. We ventured out to the mall this morning. I am getting ready to finish the front of my needlecase. I am contemplating making some changes before I move on to the next piece. It is amazing how I started from a draft of my design and how much it has evolved once I began to stitch it. I will have to go back and modify my original design to accurately reflect what the designed has migrated to. I have so many other designs going thru my head I need to capture them when I think of them so I can start on them next.
