The next kit could possibly be a Christmas present for my Mom, but we'll see. It is a small kit called "Horse Pals" by Dimensions. I found a great gridding tutorial and this was the first piece I did. Annoyingly boring, but I can definitely see the merits in big projects. I can't wait to put the first stitches in, starting somewhere other than the center. That, for some reason, makes me giddy.
I haven't stopped as planned. Here is the progress I made in one night.
|"Petunia" progress as of 1/22/2013|
I completed all the white parts of the cat. I am going to work the cat first and then the border last. At least, that is the plan so far.
One tip I got was to get a tacky bob. Before ordering one on the internet, I ran to Hobby Lobby after a doctor's appointment. They only ended up having a tacky mat, but I figured I could use it for this project and see how many more I might think about doing before getting a full tacky bob. I also found a great Christmas chart book.
But, that is a story for a different time
