Santa is legless!
I feel much better today, I had a great nights sleep after finishing off Santa's arm last night.
I'm off out for a walk soon, then when I get home I'll be sorting out Santa's boots. He is almost done now. I have some ribbons and bells left from the robin door ornaments, so I'll be adding a little something to the bottom, then this piece will be wrapped to be given away.
I don't know what to do next, I have lots to choose from, cross stitch and quilts, I have more Christmas ideas, lots of new patterns and stitcheries, my floral trio cross stitch is whispering to me, the fan quilt is ......saying something to me, I have a gift idea for a friend and I have other WIPs all talking quietly.
I'm almost afraid to go back to the fans. I tackled them at a very confusing time, they stopped and started, stopped and started and I'm not sure what I'll find if I open the bag and let them out. I feel as though my state of mind while I was trying to add to the beautiful blocks which Karen sent, may just have affected things for me. Have I poured all my confusion and pain into them? Are all my childhood frustrations and anxieties now sewn up in the blocks I made? I know I need some more cotton batting in order to get the last two side panels on, I've been putting off buying more and using up all my little bits to make table mats. I said that the closure of this year and the beginning of a new year would I feel be a very positive thing for me, but I feel negatively about going back to the fan quilt, if as I suspect it does hold some of those feelings then surely finishing it would bring some sense of closure for me, that would be a positive thing too, but I baulk at opening the bag, I see it peeping out from under my sewing table and I don't like the way it makes me feel. Maybe I need company, perhaps Moya or DD Kay, or Hunney will hold my hand while I peep inside.
1) Another late shift.
2) Spoilt for project choice!
3) A good nights sleep.
