As always, YCQM reflects some portion of my One Little Word for 2015, Serenity. This week’s it’s a new-to-me scripture. It’s helping. I hate that for Farrah, life has to go on in its little routines but life is going to be so different.
For the Smalls check-in, I decided again to use my round robin piece (she was only 12-13hours all up, but an hour of that would have been the lettering). This is Mediterranean Mermaid (my friend Lynne calls her “Jug”, as she is normally carrying an amphore). I chose this piece as I have the whole thing kitted up and stitch it at hospital each time Mase is admitted. I haven’t stitched on the big piece all year! Winning!
It’s nearly time to send out the first set of our NZXS Facebook groups RR’s. Pretty excited to see what I will stitch, as the three others in my group have some very different tastes J It will be nice to do something completely out of the norm (Angela is as big a Halloween freak as I am Christmas) but surprise! I am still on a Nora kick so my piece is the four faces, in a 50*50 square. From left to right they are intended to be:
Verses looks wrong – so far the suggestions from the FB Mira, Mira page range from Sabrina, Elizabeth, Persephone (my big WIP, I’ve already ruled her out), Roses of Provence (love her but don’t own her yet), Florentina (I don’t like her face, she looks sneaky & sly! But I love the cat. I posted to Nora that I’d stitch a whole series based on that cat), Lady of the Mist (love her too! But still to own & I think only with Stargazer, Rose of Sharon and maybe Mother’s Bliss in a series) or Villa Mirabilia. I’m going to ask Zeb if she has Provence, and if I can “borrow” that portion.
The centre plant is the rose bush from Damask Roses, but I converted the leaves to make a bit brighter. The charted colours just washed out on the confederate grey fabric.
