January 4, 2017

Hi all! Today's project is Cotillion from Papillon Creations. I've chosen 32ct Twilight linen from Picture This Plus and flosses from Vikki Clayton threads. Again, I can't give a start date but I'm pretty sure it was started during one of my infamous January starts. 

For those of you who don't know, I did an annual stash dive and purge for a number of years. During the dive I would choose projects to work on during the upcoming year. Then I would decide whether I was going to start all or only some of the chosen projects. Some years I would have so many projects it would take me the entire month of January to start them all! The thing is, I really don't like starting new projects. Or rather, I don't like pulling all of the supplies to start a new project. I don't know what it is. Too many decisions to be made? Fear of choosing the 'wrong' colors? Anyway, starting a whole bunch of projects at one time seemed like a great idea. It has also produced an excessively high number of WIPs. 

As I look at this project, I do like the colors against the fabric and the pattern is still interesting to me. So, my conclusion is that I should keep it and hope to be able to add it to my rotation sometime soon. Do you have any projects like this? 

So, here's my start:


Thanks for reading. Happy Stitching!
