Rotation Report

It is time again to report on my February rotation, if I can call it that.  I really spent the beginning of this short month concentrating on the Tuesday Smalls and on Workbasket's Quaker Owl to the exclusion of the other pieces in the rotation.

Monday: Jacobean Elegance Afghan.  I have finally pulled this out of the UFO pile, with only two days left in the month in which it was supposed to be the major focus of the rotation.  But better late than never.  Some small progress has been made.  The way this is going to play out is alternating rows of Flower, Bud, Bud, Flower and Bud, Flower, Flower, Bud.  I am finding it slow going because of the unwieldiness of the very large Q-snap frame.  I am going to have to get my floor stand out so I don't have to hold it.  Stitching two handed will be much quicker, if only my Q snap will fit in the clamps of the floor stand.

Tuesday: Smalls. PS Year Round [done], M Design's Name Tree for Sean [restarted, frogged and restarted yet again. all because of a knot on the back.  Both S's are done and I have started on the first E.  I'd say I have made a good start on this piece], Town Square series Sandi's Sweet Shoppe [kitted but not started], Mint Tea Towel [done, see Tuesday's post for photo].

Wednesday: Work basket's Quaker Animals.  Owl [done], Bat.
Thursday: Class Piece.   Victoria Sampler Mystic Smalls Biscornu/Tuffet.  Once completed, resume work on Victoria Sampler's Sturbridge Box. I didn't get to any of this so will be deferring it to the March goals list.
Friday: Sewing Finishes.

Your super-organized stitching rotation is inspiring, for a disorganized stitcher like me :) I had to laugh when you said you "restarted, frogged, and then restarted" the Name Tree. It's always the patterns that appear quick to stitch that cause the most headaches LOL

Good luck with the afghan, I really couldn't cope with the repetition like that! But it will look lovely.

As does the thread in Sean's name tree, great colour.
