Speaking of Take of Stitch Tuesday, week 23 was a "break" week with a mini-challenge to take any eight stitches from the previous 21 weeks and do some "eye candy". Not sure if this qualifies but it does include 13 stitches (from left to right: couched stitch, chevron, herringbone, Cretan, chain; a bouquet of flowers using detached chain, buttonhole, stem, satin and French Knot stitches; running stitch, crossed buttonhole, and chained butterfly), all on "Desert Sky" 28-ct Linen:
So today --- do I satisfy my conscience and do a little on "Kimono" and a little on my crazy quilt journal? Or do I start the metallics on "Ornaments"?
Ornaments looks GREAT!! Maybe you just need to set a rule, do the metallic on 1-2 ornies a day, then move on to the other projects. I would have to use those gingerbread men again on something - they are so cute :) I think your mini challenge came out wonderfully - some things just take 2 tries (or 10) :)
