Love and Hubris

It must be written into the genetic make-up of a stitcher, that no matter what time constraints that may be presented to said stitcher, they are immediately dismissed with a pert 'No problem!' and a smile. Only 2 weeks until Valentine's Day? It's your wedding anniversary? You need something to commemorate the event? No problem :D!

Such is the case when I took it upon myself to stitch something for myself and Teh Hubmeister to celebrate our second wedding anniversary yesterday. I had chosen a cute little kit that I was *POSITIVE* that I was going to get done in time. Riiiiiiiii-iiiiiiggggggggggggttttt! What I didn't take into account that Teh Hubmeister and I would be moving on February 1 and how busy I would be at work. Ah, well! I did give it the old college try! :D

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

Design: Love Happens photobooth

Designer: Bent Creek

Fabric: 32 count raw linen as provided in the kit

Fibers: DMC Six Strand Embroidery Floss Art. 117

Teh Hubmeister loves what I have done so far. I gave it to him yesterday, as is, as this wedding anniversary was a bit lean on gifts as we moved into our first home together at the first of the month. I am going to my weekly stitch in at Stitcher's Paradise tomorrow and this is the only project I am taking with me. I have several Blackbird Designs charts that are calling my name, however, in vain am I fighting off their siren song. So far I am winning, however, there is new 28 count Picture This Plus linen in Legacy and new Crescent Colours Belle Soie silks that I have set aside for said Blackbird charts and it's getting quite difficult! :)

Well, I am off for now. Have things to do before DH and I have dinner. Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! :)
