Phew! That was a long absence! I still have not found my camera battery, but in the meantime the Duet household went a little crazy and purchased an iPad!!! It has a camera on it and that is what I used to take these pictures of my current project. I am so excited! I think I might just start taking tons of pics of all of my WIPS and post them intermittently this week. You know, to make up for my lack of recent posts.
As you can see, the current project is Perching by BBD from their new Loose Feathers book.
I loved it the moment I saw it. What a sweet bird! I am not sure if I am going to put the current year in or not. I would like to put in a family memory year, like 1941, but I don't know if I can figure out how to chart that so I might just leave the numbers out.
I purchased the frame specifically for this project. It has been in my LNS, Inspired Needle, for a long time and I have loved it but I would not let myself buy it unless I had a specific project in mind. I think it goes perfectly with this design.
I was at Target yesterday. They have some darling Mary Englebreit items in their dollar section. I spied this cute tin and bought it even though I had no specific use for it. Her designs just call to me. On the way home I thought of this idea. I put all the threads for my current project in it! It is now a "current project thread holder!"
So glad to be back in blogland!!!!! See you soon!!!
