817 Fatigue


Well, it took long enough, but I think I have had DMC 817 fatigue set in. I really do need to either do some of the nitpicking stitches or find something quick to do before Thanksgiving. Looking at the last post's pictures and tonight's, I have made more progress than I thought, however, I am just weary of stitching in 814. Note to self: REALLY make sure you want to stitch a particular Heaven and Earth Designs. You will be staring at this for a long, long, looooooooooooooooong time. It would behoove you to make sure you are totally in love with the color and/or design. 


At any rate, here is my progress so far: 



Design: Oriental Courage Storykeep

Designer: Michelle Sayetta of Heaven and Earth Designs. Based on the original artwork of Lee Ann Seed

Fabric: 22 count Antique White aida by Wichelt

Fibers: DMC in 154, 310, 321, 498, 606, 666, 814, 815, 817, 902 and 3371



Progress as of 11.09.2013:

Welp, I best be off. Need to clean up the kitchen from dinner tonight (which was beef stew). I may make pumpkin bread either tonight or tomorrow. Depends on my level of laziness. :P



Hope everyone is having a great week!
