- finish Gypsy Mermaid (by March 22)
- make visible progress on another WIP (either Floral Fifteen or Fatum)
I don't have a recent progress pic of either, but these are my old pics:
(6 squares done, 4 outlined, 5 not started yet...)
(parts 1-4 and 8 complete, of 12 total)
Floral Fifteen is killer with all the color changes, which is why I stopped working on it. I should probably face reality and admit that I don't actually like Just Nan designs... I got sucked in by the enthusiasm of real JN fans and the allure of limited edition stuff. Fact is, I don't like stitching little motifs, or changing thread colors 85 times in one square inch, or finishing fiddly little projects. It can be hard to let go of the image you have of yourself as a stitcher, though!
Fatum fell by the wayside because I got behind on the SAL (it was the first Passione Ricamo mystery SAL) and then it was revealed that there's text on the bottom of the design. I've seen it finished without the text, but the border doesn't line up perfectly, so I got annoyed about that. Maybe I can find a better way, or leave out the text and stitch something else there? I don't know. Sigh. So I've also learned that mystery SALs are not for me!
Okay, less whining, more stitching. Though to be honest, it's more Persona 4, ahaha...
