Yesterday my new start was actually a WIP. I pulled out "Days of Advent" by Mary Beale. I haven't worked on this for at least 2 years, maybe more. All I really had done on it is block 1 and a little of block 2. Here is my before picture:
Days of Advent was not originally on my list, but I decided to swap it out with Paradise Lost. I love Paradise Lost, but it is another huge one and I didn't want to start too many really big ones this year. I still have a lot of BAPs in progress, so I wanted to finish some of them first. I really want to finish Days for a Christmas gift for my brother next year. He is one of those "impossible to buy for" types and I know this will just touch his heart. He's the kind of guy who is generous to a fault, but isn't into "things", so its hard to find anything for him. You end up going the practical route, like socks, and then you just feel lame! But he is a catholic priest and one of the few things he does buy is classical religious art. I know he will love this piece.
And the other big project that is really calling to me is AED 1746 by Scarlet Letter.
I am hoping the fabric for this one will arrive in the mail today, and if it does that will be my start for today. I could really continue happily on Days of Advent, I was really feeling it yesterday while I was working on it. Its so hard to stop and go to a meeting when I would rather cozy up with a good project!! But duty calls!
