One day down, four to go …

… before it’s the weekend again – I’m looking forward to another lazy one 😉

Yesterday, however, was far from lazy – I ended up being the only team member left in the office due to annual leave and sickness, so I only managed to leave my desk for two toilet breaks.  Add to that the internet going down, and the credit card link through the normal system going down, it was a busy day!  Because of that I decided to walk out the door at 5pm sharp … which is pretty unheard of for me!  But by 5pm I felt burnt out.  On the way home I picked up some grocery shopping for the week, then sat down and did a bit more stitching on the Sunflower Sampler.  I’d love to get the equivalent of one row or band stitched each night, and managed OK last night for an hour or two.

I managed to get the house and bird bands finished on Sunday night (minus the ladybird beads again), then last night started on the wording.  If possible I’d like to get the wording finished plus one more band during the week, then I can get the entire piece finished off over the weekend.

Drawn Thread-Sunflower Sampler 2

Drawn Thread-Sunflower Sampler 3

I have to admit I wish I’d used two strands of thread for this piece, but by the time I’d worked that out it was too late to unpick it. I’m starting to get used to the different look of one thread … just.  When I started stitching I just figured “the designer knows best” … I guess I won’t be looking as closely when it’s hanging on the wall …

  1. I think it looks very nice! I usually prefer 2 strands as well, ’cause I like fat stitches 🙂

  2. It’s looking gorgeous Anne, I think that Cynthia’s designs particularly lend themselves to the delicate look of just one strand.

  3. It’s soooo pretty! I don’t usually go for one strand either but I like it on the Drawn Thread designs. I think it looks great 🙂

  4. its looking great you must be burnt out after all your work.. i find stitching a great way to relax only trouble is dont want to get up till late cos of stitching so long in the eve. dont want to put it down lol keep going cant wait to see it next week

  5. I am normally a 2 strand girl, because I like the stitched area to look filled in. The only time that I stray from that is when I have a kit with silks (like SB) and don’t want to run out.

    I think that this piece looks fabulous either way 🙂

  6. Wow, you must be tired, poor gal! Sounds like you have had quite a lot going on. I think the one strand looks fine. Certainly nothing to fuss over. Great work! 🙂
