It’s a saying farmers use… because as sure as there’s freshly mown hay laying in the field, chances are that rain will come soon. So you’d best take advantage of the sunny weather while you can, and get it brought in before the rain.
The same saying is appropriate for me presently: I’ve got roughly a month before I head back to work at my seasonal job, so I’m trying to make the most of it.
It’s been bugging me that Illuminata has been languishing for so long, so I’m working on it again. Here are a couple shots of my studio set-up:
Because the project is so large and there’s so much floss; I’m glad I have a spot to spread everything out so I can grab whatever I need. Yes, the chair swivels and has coasters. 😉 You can see from the photo that I haven’t really progressed much stitching-wise. I estimate it’s about 2/3 finished.
Like I said: there’s a lot of floss. Not all of those colors have been used yet, but probably will be. I’m pretty amazed that during the many years the marathon’s been in process, I haven’t lost the all-important floss tally sheet.
Presently, I’m designing the cloister garden scene at the bottom of the piece. It’s got both over-one and over-two stitching so far. Maybe a screen shot from my computer next time…
Keep a good thought!
