And I have hardly had a needle in my hand. I wanted to stitch, but it just didn't happen. This is quite possibly another reason for the crankiness.
However, when Gay Ann announced she was starting a Midnight Star stitch-along, I dug the one that I had piloted out of the finished pile, so I do have something to show. I wanted to play with the colors a little, so I went with the silver metallic canvas instead of dark canvas and light threads. This was REALLY out of my comfort zone and I have not a clue what I'll ever do with it, but it was fun to stitch.
I do believe that I may take the center motif and stitch it in Christmas colors. I think it would make a fantastic ornament.
I think it would look totally different hung on point--if you tilt your head just slightly you can see what I mean.
And that means I have to figure out what very safe place I stashed the directions so I can try that out.
