Feelin' Fickle!

Hi Everyone!  It has been a while!

After finishing SDW I have been very fickle with not knowing what to work on next.  I keep starting new projects but have not been that jazzed about stitching.  Maybe it is Spring fever?

I started on Scarlet Letter's Ellenor Wykcs with a small SAL group.  All the double running stitch seemed so foreign to me.


Then I worked a bit on N. Hinde from the Scarlet Letter.  This one seemed small and I thought "well, I should be able to finish that in a couple days"... NOT!  Working this one with some cherry Wildflowers silk.  


Next up, I went back to Gigi R's Saxony ATS.  I started this one also as a SAL back in October and have not gotten so far with it.  The colors are beautiful though....


Then, I came across another SAL on fb called Randje per week, a group from the Netherlands.  Looked like so much fun so I jumped right in!


And now I have jumped onto the American Quaker Band Sampler from the Scarlet Letter.  A small start but I am enjoying this one so far!


So what does it all mean??  Lots of WIPs!  

I also wanted to share with you the 'finished' finish of the moose parade.  My friend loved the stitching and decided instead of having it framed she wanted a pillow.  So I recommended, of course, our friend Carolina Stitcher Faye!   What a fantastic job she did!!  


And in an effort to do some Spring cleaning, I have started going through my stash to post up on Ebay.  I have posted up about 40 charts already which can be found here if you are interested in taking a look-see.  I have some very old charts from about 15 years ago, including some OOP.  I am amazed at how much I have... even duplicates!  Guess I liked some so much I got them twice!  lol!  

Thanks for visiting!   Enjoy the weekend and Happy Stitching!  xxxx

You sound like me -- after a big project like SDW, it's hard to settle down to a new project. So you get startitis! lol! Yes indeed! Well they are all lovely projects! Love the finishing Faye did on the pillow too!

Blu said...

They're all very lovely projects!

Mary said...

I feel your pain, Krista! Looks like you've chosen some great new projects though,

Vickie said...

Oh boy! This makes my head spin!!

marly said...

I feel like such a wimp! I can't decide on little baby stitch marking samplers and look at your choices!

Jenny said...

I love all of your choices Krista. After finishing a large sampler I too have a hard time settling down with just one....LOL...so I do what you do....make many starts and then enjoy them all... :)

Robin said...

What lovely WIPs you have, Krista! I am not familiar with your American Quaker Band Sampler so I am going to go look for it.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Your WIPs are all so lovely, and the moose pillow is just wonderful - well done.

All these wips look great & I love the moose finish!

Chris said...

Lots of wonderful projects in the works. Sometimes it is so hard to settle down to one.
Faye did a great job finishing up your Moose. I love it.
I need to go through my stash too. There are some things that I will just never stitch.
I hope that you have a great week!

Lots of beautiful starts. I like the moose design : )

Carol said...

So many pretty projects to choose from, Krista! And your friend's pillow looks just wonderful :)

You have been a butterfly this month! It is strange when you finish one big project that you don't always feel like settling straight into another one.

Flit around until you find the next Big One.

Sounds a little like Relationship advice too LOL

Anne said...

Wow Krista! You have some amazing samplers going on. I really love Ellenor Wycks. The colours are just gorgeous. I'm sure the double running stitch will get less foreign as you make progress.

Brigitte said...

I know that feeling after finishing a really big project. But what you have started looks really good. I'm looking forward to seeing what project you will concentrate on.
The Four Moose pillow looks gorgeous.
