I was chatting online this morning and realized I have several more WIPs I haven't even seen yet! It's a little scary to think how many projects I have started. And yet, I'm thinking of starting another large project very soon. I would just need to find the fabric to work on since it's larger than a fat quarter. The piece is 205w x 467h. On 32 ct fabric with a 3" border, I would need my fabric to be 19" x 36". I know I don't have anything that large currently in my stash. I did see a really gorgeous piece on Silkweaver Facebook sales that will work well if I can buy 2 pieces that are uncut. Each piece is 18" x 32" if I remember correctly. Crossing my fingers while waiting for Kevin to answer!
On to today's project. It's Favorite Things from A Needle & Fred. I like this one so much I bought it twice! I'm stitching on 28ct Blackcurrant Wine Jobelan from Polstitches Designs. The color is fabulous but it's Jobelan - an evenweave. We all know how I feel about almost anything other than linen, right? So, that's strike number 1. Then I pulled the threads it called for. While in theory I like them, I'm not really enjoying that Peach Ice Cream as my first block. It made me put the piece down and move on to something else. That's strike number 2. I still like these quirky flowers and want to see it finished. It's just going to be a struggle to get past this first box. February will hopefully see me work on this one. I do not want a third strike! I want this to be stitched and finished so I can look at it often.

It kind of looks like a butterfly at this point, right? I'm off to stitch! Hopefully it will be a great weekend. I hope you all have good progress as well. Send me your pictures. I'd love to see what you're working on.
