Weekend Works

This is the piece I chose to start over the weekend. Its a paper folded hat from the book Japan Point de Croix.

Here is the progress for my MIL's piece. I found I was falling behind when I was just doing 1 heart at a time. So instead I changed up the mundane and did their outlines and will work on the floral/fauna between. Clearly it didn't get completed for Christmas, but her birthday is at the end of Feb so perhaps I shall have it all done away with for then.

I had a customer come in and ask me how it was going on my piece. I asked her which piece as she has seen me working on a few. She meant my cousins cabin sampler for their wedding...which I became so frustrated with I have not even bothered to pick it up let alone finish. I told her this. She seemed to scowl when I mentioned how I was currently working on other WIPs projects. Shes not a crazed stitcher like I am, having multiple pieces on the go. Never sure if or when things will be completed. It makes me testy when clearly non crafty persons scoff at the in completion of my stitchings.

Better yet......
