Is it going to happen? No. Not at this time. The border is done except for the beading - which is not in the original pattern but the rest was beaded so I added beads to the border pattern. Block 4's plain X around the perimeter with assorted little bits on the inside...I can't do any more. I keep walking away to other distractions so time to put it away for a bit.
As much as I thought the dragonfly was my favorite block I think I like Block 3, with the gold and blue beads background the best.
Meanwhile, I am being called by these other 3 projects which I kitted up this week when I needed to walk away from the almost finished piece above. These have been calling to me for sometime I just didn't have them ready to go. Now they are - not in any particular order:
Chatelaine's Japanese Octagon Box that will not be a box. The cloth is a greenish 32 ct Platinum. I am still not convinced about the color. The other alternative is a 32 ct raw linen.
The only thing I'm convinced about that choice is that the white will show up. Part of me keeps wanting to try it on 32 ct Flax but I know from experience the white thread won't show up very well on that. Since I didn't finish the Dragonfly piece I can't bring myself to start this one.
Which leaves one of these as a February start:
Lizzie Kate's Winter Alphabet on a 36 count ancient mystery Green Mountain dyed cloth. The cloth is a grayish khaki with slight mottling and some stray marks. 1 strand over 2. I love 1 strand work.
At least I waited until February.
With the exception of the 2012 semi- BAP challenge, I finished the 2 pieces I started in January. We will see if I can continue the trend of finishing what I start in the same month started.
