At the rate I am going, I had better get my act together and order the braid and beads I will need for embellishing this piece. I'll be at that stage by late October or early November at the very latest. It would be a shame if the finish were delayed for want of the right materials.
I know I am at least a month. away from a finish but I am already beginning to feel a bit melancholy at the thought of not stitching my angel. For the moment nothing in my WIP/UFO basket is calling to me and I am not sure what I shall pick up next. Probably the old and new Thea Dueck Mystic pieces: the stitching pocket and accessories from the past retreat and the Christmas Sampler from this year's retreat. I have gotten into the habit of doing one project at a time. I wonder if that habit will stick once I am finished with the stocking.. There is also the possibility of starting a stocking for my granddaughter, Piper ... a Woodland Maiden to be a companion to the Woodland Angel. But first I have to covert the colorway of the name and maiden's dress from blue to pink
