A few weeks back I joined a group of bloggers who like to get things done – things meaning stitching projects!
We all have those projects that we start and have never quite finished – whether it’s life or yet another project that caught our attention. I’m taking this opportunity to finish some of mine, and posting my progress puts just the right amount of exposure (read pressure!) on me to finally get things moving on them again.
My first entry was started about 14 years ago and was originally intended to be matching Christmas jerseys for my daughter and me. I completed about half of mine when Christmas arrived (unexpectedly :/), and the jersey went into a bag.
Of the few unfinished projects I recently discovered in the Craft Corner, the Christmas Sparkler seemed the most timely. It was the project that I was closest to finishing.
I’ve been working on it in the evenings before I turn in, one or two rows a night, and just look! I’ve actually finished it, and it’s not even Christmas yet!
Brittany can now share it with me! I’m not even going to start a second jersey, as I know that mother/daughter dress-a-like opportunity boat has sailed. But there are occasions where she might need a festive top to wear to school, and I’ll be sporting it at the family Christmas party this year!
I’m so excited to join these ladies from around the globe in our Stitch-A-Long. Be sure to see what Avis (England), Claire (France), Gun (Sweden), Kate (Australia), Carole (England), Eleanor (England), Alison (England), Wendy (England) and Jule (Germany) are up to these days.
