Rotation Report

In an effort to meet my gift deadline, I have doubled up on the Jacobean Elegance afghan and eliminated the class pieces from my rotation for the time being.  I am still including the smalls and the Quaker themed pieces in the rotation for variety.

Monday and Tuesday: BAP
Jacobean Elegance Afghan.   Four and a half blocks of 20 completed.  But I'll be stitching on this both Monday and Tuesday, so I hope to increase that count by another block before Wednesday.

Wednesday: Smalls
Sean's Name Tree ornament from M Designs.  I have finished the first "E" and started on the second.

Sandi's Sweet Shop in The Town Square series.

Thursday: Theme
Workbasket's Quaker Bat.   As with the Quaker Owl, I have two complete skeins and one partial skein in different dye lots of  the fiber I'll be using.  This time the color is Old Crow, a deep blue black.  I'm working on the wings first using the darkest of the dye lots.
Workbasket's  Quaker Squirrel.  

Friday: Sewing Finishes.  
Town Square ornament series: 

The Pet Store, 

The Quilt Shop  

The Silversmith

and a By the Bay Acorns: these are supposed to be acorns but I am thinking they look more like stylized flower buds than acorns.  I found this free By th Bay chart in a e-newsletter.  Aside from the fact that it does not appear to be what it purports to be, I think it's rather pretty.  I'll use it on the spring and summer tree.

Saturday & Sunday: get out of the stitching chair and do a wide variety of things: walk, exercise, antique, reorganize, put the garden to bed for the winter, feed and observe the backyard birds, read, visit friends and relatives, try a new restaurant, experiment with the recipes I have been downloading, host a high tea ... whatever.
Weekend Stitching: Stitcher's Choice: The Jacobean Afghan, see photo above,
Monthly Stitching: March entry from the Prairie Schooler Year Round leaflet [done], a name tree ornament and one more Town Square ornament.  These will be my smalls for all the Tuesdays this month.  In the unlikely event I finish all three before month's end, I'll pull my Fertile Circles Needle Book from the UFO basket.

The afghan is growing well, it looks super.

You've got your work cut out on the afghan. Hopefully each one becomes quicker to stitch as you memorise the symbols and colours.
The Quaker Bat is looking good too.

Spell checked.
