So a fellow blogger at Pull The Other Thread started a challenge that seemed right up my alley since the whole reason I started this blog is to encourage me to finish up the projects I have started. The challenge is called Year of the Acronym or YOTA and here is my first monthly YOTA post of 2013.
My first project I am focusing on until it is finished is my Carl Larsson piece Letter Writing. This is a very OLD project I can't even remember when I started it but it was probably sometime after I bought it in 2002. It is so old that the stitches aren't all going in the same direction (it took me a few projects to figure out this technique) and the willy nilly stitching is a little distracting to me but c'est la vie.
Here is where I had left it oh so many years ago with quite a few frogged stitches (that is probably why I got frustrated with it and put it away for so long).
And here is where I was a week ago after fixing most of the errors.
And ta da...here is where I am after working on it for the past 12 days!!
I am hoping that I can finish this piece by the end of the month...but we will see! I already have my eye on a large unfinished piece that just needs backstitching to be complete and I would love to be able to start on it :)
Ok this was supposed to be on time...I had even scheduled this post, but somehow with my user error this didn't get posted. There is nothing more humbling than being a blogger beginner!
