Coming up Tulips?


Here is my progress on my GH Angel of Tulips. Boy was it wishful thinking that Danielle and I would finish it in one week's time! We both have been busy with exchange pieces, she more than I, and as a result I at least have not finished my piece. But I don' t have too much to go and it's not planned as a gift yet so I'm not worried about it.

I did finish putting together my SBEBB ornament tonight. I'm not 100% thrilled with the finished results but it's still turned out very nicely I think. I have to stop being such a perfectionist with my pieces. They are homemade and they should look like they are, not as if they were made by a machine. But I so want anything I send out to another stitcher to be perfect! Do you know what I mean?

Tonight I hope to put in the starting stitches for my holiday sampler house. I already know what I'm going to stitch so that's a good thing. Our Legacy organizer had us post a list of likes so I also have some ideas for what to include in my package to my partner. That's a definite plus as I hate shopping!

Your Angle of Tulips is coming along great!

I'm sure your ornament is lovely! I know what you mean about wanting to send perfect pieces but as you say we are not machines! Besides you may see minor defects with your work but most certainly you're the only one who may notice them!

I do know what you mean - I did mine on the weekend and I made a bit of a hash up of attaching some twisted cord - looks great from the front - just don't flip it over!!!

I totally understand your worries about finishing. I am still nervous about doing my first exchange because I worry that it won't be just right. I think anyone who stitches understands, though!

Your angel looks great. I have not progressed too far, but I hope to get back to it soon. I definitely plan on working on it when I am caught up with my exchanges!!!

Love your Angel of Tulips, Patti! I hear you on the perfect finishing thing - I always think that I could have done some part of it better. Sometimes you just have to say it's "good enough"!
