Well I'm stitching my little heart out on the piece for The Gift of Stitching magazine. I've got 3 more pages to go and then it'll be winging it's way down under. I figure I can tell you what the super secret project is now as Kirsten posted a peek on her blog!! I have to admit, I'm totally stoked about this! I can't give you too much information, given it's a mystery design, but I can tell you that it's a huge, colourful band sampler.
In other news... my model stitcher sent me a progress update on Tulip. This is another in the flower series, and I'm so pleased with it so far! This one is being stitched in Belle Soie silks, again on Magnolia fabric. Not the greatest pic, but it's done with a camera phone. lol
I have to admit something. It's incredibly weird seeing my stuff stitched for the first time by someone else! The is the first time I've not stitched the model personally, and even though it looks lovely, and I totally trust that my model stitcher will do a beautiful job, I'm having a hard time with it. Not sure how to describe the feeling. I'm a bit of a control freak, so I guess that gives you an idea of what I'm feeling.
Once I'm done stitching the model for TGOS, I'll be starting on another of the flower designs, probably Daffodil, since I already have all the materials for it. I'm getting together a rather large thread order for the rest of them though. In all, there will be nine designs. Yes, nine. I'll be a busy girl for a while I think. ;)
And I'm off now to make some dinner. Stuffed peppers tonight, been craving them for ages!
