Enchanted Mermaid, English Garden Sampler, Mirabilia, Teresa Wentzler, Works in Progress

The UFO challenge continues

I don’t know what’s wrong with me at the moment, I just seem totally obsessed with getting some older pieces of stitching finished … and I can’t seem to put them down … goodness knows what will happen once these two are completed, whether I’ll feel at peace enough to pick up a new start or a newer WIP, or whether I will continue with the urge to finish older items … but either way, this is my stitching challenge to myself at the moment.  In truth I’ve been battling with depression on and off for months now, and this is what is bringing me ‘stitching peace’ for some reason … so I figure it’s best not to fight it and go with the flow for now …  I guess that also means that my 2013 Crazy January Challenge has pretty much gone out the window, but them’s the breaks!

Anyway, here is my latest progress with two of my old UFO’s – Teresa Wentzler’s English Garden Sampler, and Mirabilia’s Enchanted Mermaid.




Sadly my employer’s management team have decided in their ultimate wisdom to move our team back into the city once again, after moving us closer to home for the last 8 weeks (hence much more stitching being done that I’ve managed in a long time) … so it means no more 20-30 mins drive to work anymore, and back to 1 to 1 1/2 hr commutes each way … I guess if nothing else I’ll get more books read once again on the train, so perhaps I should focus on that silver lining, but all I can keep thinking of is the removal of my spare time during the week 😦  It’s going to feel a bloody long time until December comes and we can move back out to being near home once again 😦  So pffffft to you management team 😦

  1. I absolutely love the mermaid pattern. Mirabilia has some gorgeous patterns. I’d start some myself if I didn’t have so many patterns in my stash already…

    Good luck getting through until December, long commutes really do make you feel like you have a big chunk of wasted time everyday.

  2. Just LOVE the Garden sampler and the Mermaid is gorgeous too! Re the travelling, at least you’ll get to read a book and be driven, rather than doing the driving yourself! Roll on December in the meantime 🙂

  3. They’re both stunning and definitely deserve the attention you’re giving them – kudos to you for wanting to finish old UFOs, I wish I could catch it too 🙂

  4. Great progress on both of your wips, if working on your old wips is what is appealing at the moment then I say go with it.

    Bummer about the commute 😦
