I was just paging back through the blog to see when was the last time I stitched on any thing other than the stocking. It was August 18th, on Stitch Bitch's challenge piece featuring the Plum Street Sampler free chart, Be True. Considering my usual affliction of stitcher's ADD, working on one piece and only one piece for a little over a month is truly astounding.
Apropos of the recent post of Autumn finishes: I hadn't realized just how very much I gravitate towards Autumn and Halloween and Thanksgiving projects. For the heck of it, I went back and counted the photos on those three gallery posts and it came to a total of 67 projects. And that's only as many projects as I have bothered to photograph. There are probably a dozen or more similarly themed pieces gifted to my daughter and a few more gifted to my grandchildren that were never recorded in my digital photo albums. I am almost afraid to browse through my stash to see just how many Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving charts are yet to be stitched. I could very well end up in three digits. Perhaps it is a good thing that I have embarked on the project of making a stocking for each of my three grandchildren. It will give me a bit of variety in my stitchery. Though it is true that when my own children were younger I stitched an awful lot of Christmas stuff. I guess I do tend to get hung up on themes. A quick mental inventory of my stash shows me I still have many dragon charts, Quaker charts and sampler charts awaiting stitching. So, I see many a dragon, an acorn, an alphabet and a Quake motif in my future interspersed with witches and cauldrons and such like stuff.
