Finally, my first finish of 2008! I'm excited. Due to an injury on Saturday, I spent most of the weekend on the couch, thus enabling me to finish up on my stitching. I finished Blossom by Dinky Dyes using Dinky Dye Silk Threads. I liked the silk threads but the colors are a little bright for me!
Now, this injury. What was it? Nothing serious but it definitely has me laid up! The clutz that I am fell off the curb waiting for some friends of mine and thus resulted in me landing on both my knees. Needless to say, I now have the most "prettiest" knees full of scratches and bruises. This is the picture from that afternoon. They look better now but I will still spend the evening with my legs propped up and ice packs on my knees as I am still quite sore and they are still swollen!
The past two weeks I've worked on the HAED Iris Storykeep. I've only put Dragon Knot down for a short time. I plan on picking it back up shortly but I am trying to work on different projects for a week or two at a time. I'm trying not to get burned out on projects and become bored.
Anyway, here's the update on the HAED:
I've also started a new project "Blossom". It uses Dinky Dye silk threads. I'm really enjoying it. It's my first time working with silks.
Today I also purchased the threads, beads, and materials for "Poppy" of the Pixie Couture collection. I can't wait to get started on this one. And yes, I am going to continue on with my other projects!
