It's TUSAL time again! My mason jar of orts is getting incredibly full. I keep having to squish them down to make room.
This month there is a bunch of blue silk in there from ripping out the lettering from my NATO Subversive Sampler (which I replace with purple silk). On top of that are a ton of reds from Drama Queen.
Speaking of Drama Queen, I finally have a page finish!!
This was by far the most stress-free and enjoyable page I have done on this project so far. Parking is definitely the answer for me when it comes to complex, confetti-heavy projects. Now I just have to decide if I work on page 7 (the one below the page I just finished, which is more poppies and confetti) or page 4 to finish the top row (which is mostly blocky background). I'm leaning towards page 4, because I might just get another page finish in before the end of December this way.
Shamefully, I must admit to purchasing a few more HAED charts during the 50% off sale. I don't know what I was thinking, or when I'll ever get around to stitching all of these charts. Oh my goodness my stashpile is huge!! Here's what I just couldn't live without ...
China Lake (Gordon Fitchett)
Ice Palace (Ciro Marchetti)
Magikal Moment in Time (Ciro Marchetti)
I resisted buying Marchetti charts for so long, but I caved -- now I'm in trouble!
