Bored with Black!

On at least three of the projects I'm currently working on, I'm using black. WDW Onyx, GAST Black Crow and DMC 310. Ugh! I'm really getting tired of black. Here is my progress on my UFO after this week. Not a lot accomplished unfortunately. I managed to fill in the two arms? on the design and started on the black outline today in the center - not shown in this photo. I'm also working on my over one CHS alphabet piece and my Legacy exchange piece - all using shades of black!

I've started to give some thought about 2006 stitching goals. This year was all about finishing some UFOs started in 2004 and I've managed to finish two pieces. My BOAF is the third but I doubt I'll be able to finish it before the end of the year. Next year, I really would like to work on some smaller pieces instead of BAPs. I think I need to sit down with my stash and see what cries out to be started. I know at least one will be CHS Dainty Housewren as it's been kitted up for a good 3 months but not yet started. And I'll continue to work on my UFOs and CHS alphabet piece for sure. I definitely don't want to end up with a bunch of UFOs as I did at the end of 2004. It takes too darn long to turn them into finished objects!

I have so many UFOs I hate to admit it! If I didn't start anything new, I might be able to finish them in say five years!! I do want to try and get a few of them finished, but I am already planning on the new charts I want to stitch! Stitching with black can get old. The project I have been working on for ages for a birthday only has a few colors, and I am tired of looking at them, too!!

Hey Patti, I sent you an ezmessage..go check it out.
And yes, I know what black fatigue is like, try stitching that hugh quaker, Ann took about a million yards of black silk.

I think I am going to concentrate on finishing some of my WIPs in 2006 but we'll see how that works out!
