I spend more and more time at my desk lately, doing everything from working on new designs, preparing the kits, proceeding the orders, preparing for the on-line classes, etc… Because of this, my workspace is constantly changing: printing the designs, moving the paper around, cutting the silk gauze, winding the thread on spools, sorting the needles. Holding the clutter at bay is challenging. I am glad I have my stitching station far from the office and rushing to it each time when I feel I am done at the desk for a day.
I am entering the month of November with several projects. The first one is a commissioned dollhouse miniature carpet Kazak on 40 count silk gauze, that will measure approx. 9″ x 6″. I am stitching with overdyed Gloriana silk.
At the end of a day I pick up another project that helps me to go through the evening. I tried to stitch a letter a day working on this reproduction of an antique Spanish sampler by Dolores Serra, but not always have enough time or desire, making a stitching process slower.
Another two cross-stitch projects are not finished pincushions. One is in three shades of red
and another is a reproduction of an antique Victorian pincushion
And at least but not last some miniature embroidery
I hope at the end of November I’ll be able to show them off finished. I am ready to start stitching my new designs I’ve been working on for a while.
