proudly presented my TUSAL for 2012, this is my ORTs for about 6 months, since I joined TUSALin June:
|look how empty my jar was in June in my first TUSAL post|
Theme of this month is: Delightful December
The holidays are a time for relaxing...at least, that's the theory! No stress here...work on whatever you want and enjoy!
I was planning to stitch the Winter Clock but I decided to stop after 2 days because I didn't enjoy it. The fabric is 11ct, the hole is big and the fabric is rough, the thread is China thread and it is not the shiny one (which has better quality) but dove, it is not interesting at all and easily frayed on rough fabric. Horrible :( I dont feel like changing the fabric and the thread ( do not want to waste them), I still want to make it because Ilike the design but I think this one will stay in my WIP stash for quite sometime.
So... just on the day of IHSW I decided to sew A Good Marriage from Lizzie and Kate. I am planning to give it to my husband's oldest niece who just got married last month. I dyed the fabric by myself using Folgers Columbian Coffee that Serkan dislike and wont brew and he said I am welcomed to use it as a dye as much as I want :) I enjoyed stitching a couple of rows and couldn't stop, and then started to get bored... this is cute but not so much challenge on it. I decided to take it easy, besides I have got a lot of things to do before going to Turkey this weekend: gatherings, souvenirs and gifts shopping, attending Dilara's school winter production before end of term holiday, and packing! No worries I would still have 2 weeks in Turkey to finish it before I handed it to her mum (serkan's niece lives in Istanbul and we are not sure if we could meet up at the airport, we are going to spend the holiday in Konya, my husband's hometown).
Thank you to Sharon Daffycat, Heather and Joysze for TUSAL, Themealicious and IHSW. Your events keep me going stitching and blogging.
See you all next year :) Have a great stitchy holiday everybody :)
