Winter Watergarden

Part 7 is done!  Yay!  I also started part 8 :D

I have really enjoyed getting back into this and there really isn't that much more to go!  Part 8 is the gates and parts 9, 10, 11 and 12 are adding detail and birds to the outer corners!

My threads for Deep Blue Sea have not arrived yet :(  So now I am tossing up what to stitch on next.  I am supposed to be joing a sal on the Love for Stitchalongs board for Joan Elliots Water Goddess but I am thinking of delaying or pulling out :(  I have so many wips and obligation pieces I don't know if I can spend the time on it and I am starting to stress about it.  I don't want my mojo to disappear again from stress!

My eldest daughter is having a few issues, with her Dad and her health.  She wanted Summer Queen for her 16th but has suggested delaying it until her 18th and has asked for the Letter T instead, I would really like to get it done for her by her 16th in March.... so I think I just answered my own question!  I will start the Letter T and stitch until I get my threads, stitch part 1 of Deep Blue Sea and then see what that date is :D

Hope the year is going well for you all!

It looks fantastic! I wish I were able to make as much progress on my Chatelaine. It has been a WIP since 2007:) I can't wait to see you start Deep Blue Sea. The thumbnail pic I saw looked lovely.

Your Winter Watergarden looks amazing, Andie!! I hope your threads arrive for Deep Blue Sea soon, it's so pretty once you start stitching on it! :)

I hope everything works out with your daughter. (((Hugs)))

Big hugs to T! I hope she is feeling better soon!

So sorry to hear about WG. Maybe you'll be less stressed & can join us soon.

Andie, it's gorgeous!!!!!!

Hmm.... I agree about the JE. Don't do it. It's not worth having your mojo disappear.

Letter T is a great idea. Should be a quickie and then you'll have your DBS threads. :D Sorry to hear DD is having a tough time. Hope she feels better soon and things work out with her dad.

I declare

  2018 to be the year of Chatelaine I'm finishing off 2017 with Deep Blue Sea And starting off 2018 with a new start sal with my bestie ...
