When the thrill is gone

Ever have a piece that when you start off you are so terribly excited about it and then get halfway through and decide that, for whatever reason, you're no longer as over the moon about it as you once were? This is happening with the piece I am trying to finish before my next trip to Stitcher's Paradise for the Wednesday Stitch-In. I should have it completed by then, but in the mean time in between time, I am no longer as thrilled with this piece as I once was. Normally, I am not sure why this happens, but in this case, I am over the color combination. It looked really good on the fabric before I started, however, now, I'm mainly 'meh' over it. I prefer deeper, richer colors for fall, as opposed to more muted tones. I will probably make this into a door hanger or something and then perhaps do a giveaway or something.

At any rate, here is what I have so far:

Design: Give Thanks

Designer: The Stitcherhood

Fabric: 25 count raw Dublin linen by Zweigart

Fibers: Carrie’s Creations in Coffee and Fall Splendor

Well, I need to bolt for the door. Got more chores to do today before I head in for work. It's my Thursday, so life is good! :)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! :)


Respectfully submitted,
