Nature's Brilliant Extravaganza
I finished one hummingbird from my Hummingbird Sampler - seven more to go. One of the others is almost finished, just a little back stitch left. I am really excited to see this project shaping up so well. It is my oldest WIP (work in progress) and it was almost a UFO (unfinished object aka project). I love the sparkle that the Kreinik Blending Filament adds to the design.
The Hummingbird Sampler is from the March/April 1990 issue of Cross Stitch and Country Crafts magazine. I am pretty sure I started the project in 1990 so that means it has been ongoing, off and on for 25 years.
Since I finished one hummingbird, I am moving on to my next project in my rotation, Ink Circles Kaleidoscope. I am a huge fan of Tracy Horner's designs, especially her Mandalas and other abstract designs. I love the colors in Kaleidoscope - so bright and pretty.
And, after I work awhile on the Ink Circles design, I will actually be ready to start over in my rotation. I have worked through it twice since the first of January. I am not even sure how many projects are in my rotation right now - I need to count. I would have gotten through my rotation more quickly if I didn't do so many side projects that weren't in my original rotation, but I don't have hard and fast rules regarding my rotation, thank goodness. I just want to finish some WIPs that have been around a long time and also get some new projects done and that is happening so YAY!
