Oops. How did this happen?
Last night, I was feeling bored with my current projects... guess all the complexity was starting to wear on me. In a moment of weakness, I started Our Love Nest by Country Cottage Needleworks.
Here's the model...
And here's my progress. Not bad for a couple of hours, when you consider that this chart actually is kind of big. At least, that's what I'm telling myself. :p
Today, I was feeling the urge to start something from my actual bucket list, since I felt bad about having a random start that was NOT on the list. I've had Bluebeard's Princess kitted up forEVER, but kept waffling on the fabric. I originally had a purplish Silkweaver lugana, but swapped in a tan/brown Sugar Maple linen. I wasn't totally happy with that because the color was too close to her skin color, so I'd been thinking about using a blue linen.
I mean, she looks pretty awful on this olive green background, right?
Well. I ended up going back to my original Silkweaver choice. I'm not 100% sure what color this is, but I'm reasonably confident that it's Dusk. Of course, if you order that color, there's no guarantee that you'll get a fabric that looks anything like this. :/
Too bad pictures can't show how sparkly this is already! All the gold and green are metallic. :)
If I start anything else this weekend, I'm going to go hide in shame. :p
