I had thought about working on the next bit of the Fair Maiden Etui finishing, but I wanted to embroider today instead.
But what . . .
A few weeks ago, I had made a little list of things I wanted to do and when I wanted to do them. As it always happens when I make a little list of things I want to do and when I want to do them, immediately I lost interest in everything on the list. It's as though writing things down means they're done and over with. So nothing on the list appealed.
And then I rationalized that I really should start something new since I've finished the embroidery on Fair Maiden and the Tulip Tray.
This is what I decided to do:
I've loved this project since I first saw a picture of it several years ago, and I was lucky enough to receive the kit last year. It's a teaching piece from Barbara Jackson, and it just makes my heart sing. Today it made my fingers fly. All the lettering is completed and I may get the other side piece stitched before I go to bed tonight.
And that will be a good day's work.
