TUSAL Update May

Sorry for the very bad photo.  I forgot to take a pic yesterday while the sun was still out.

I finished the bookmark but I am not too happy with it.  To me it looks a bit cheap and I really wish I was better at finishing because then I could of turned this into something really wonderful.

I also finished Mythcal Muse's turn on the new rotation.  I don't know why but I am having a problem trying to get myself to stitch on this piece.  I love the design and I love the colour, so I really don't know what my problem is.

 And This is what the whole piece looks like:

Another Rotation Bites The Dust

Okay I am just about to give up on rotations all together.

I tried the 10 hour rotation per WIP and it just caused more work for me. I am not the type to have a designated stitching period. I usually sit down for 5 minutes, 10 minutes there and so forth. So I was always having to try remember to set my stopwatch, stop my stopwatch and write the times down and then add them all up.

Right so now I have got one last rotation option that I can think of... and thats the goal roatation. I will be setting myself a goal on each piece and when that goal is completed (no matter how long it takes), I will then move onto the next WIP.

Luckily I have gotten a good start to this rotation. I have started the bookmark and will continue working on it until it is finished. The theachers birthday is on Tuesday the 22nd so I don't want to be rushing at the last moment.

And I have finished the work I wanted to do on Fairy Hill... and what a fun stitch it is.
