I am going to confess a little habit I have. I sometimes, on a whim, steal a few minutes of what is not my official stitching time (meaning maybe I was in the middle of folding laundry or tidying something up) to put the first few stitches in a new project. Then I put it away, get distracted, and because it isn’t in my basket, will simply forget I did that. When I was doing my big clean up last weekend I came across several such little orphans. I am going to adopt them all officially and get them into rotation. Let me introduce you to these little ones:
“Pensee Sauvage” (Wild Pansy) from Samplers Not Forgotten. It is a kit. I think this will be a quick stitch. The border is a checkerboard which will make easy pool stitching!
Stacy Nash’s Summer Garden Pin Keep. I think this is a rose? It looks like a rose. The petals are all filled in with one color so after I get the outline done this piece should all be quick and easy too. It is finished as an oval. I can’t remember if it is a pin disc or a needlebook. I am going to do it as a pin disc anyway as I really like that style of finish.
Just Nan’s Lady Scarlett’s Secret Garden. Truly a very small start! 6 stitches! I remember I was sorting things out on my floor, came across it and as I had all my DMCs out so I pulled what I needed and just for fun put in the first stitches. Then I promptly put it away and forgot all about it! Well, like most of these Just Nan smalls, it has a million colors but is so tiny it shouldn’t take too long. This is the little needlebook that fits into the Just Nan ladybug trinket box. It is so so sweet.
I didn’t even consider this before but wow, they are all unmitigated florals aren’t they? I guess I know what I like to stitch! I wonder I can finish 2 of these in September? That would be great.
