Della Robia Santa

It may be apparent to some of you who follow me, but I have been attempting to reduce by WIPs and UFOs as a goal for 2021. I still plan to do new stuff, because that is fun too, but attempting to keep that to a minimum. Wish me luck!!

In case you do not know a WIP is a Work in Progress and a UFO is an UnFinished Object. I am not quite sure the nuances between the two, but I am sure I have plenty of each!!

I have also taken back to stitching in the evenings for anywhere from 3 - 5 hours. I have a stand reminder on my watch and try to look up every 20 minutes. I stitch and listen to TV while my hubby watches. So we spend time together each night. When he asks me if I want to watch (insert show name here) I usually tell him, "sure, I can stitch to anything".

Since Yei-bi-chei is done, my next project from the cabinet is one from the 2008 Rocky Mountain Region (RMR) Seminar that was in Denver, Colorado. We had moved to the area the year before and this was my first RMR Seminar. I was lots of fun and I met a lot of nice local chapter ladies. Good memories. 

This is as much as I did at Seminar and how it looked when I started back up on May 19. 

It is a canvas project and will involve cutting out the stitching on the green canvas and attaching it to the white - it is the garland Santa is holding. It is attached in a way I have not done before, so something new there. But first I must get all the stitching done!

Here is my progress so far.

I am thinking it will look nice as a stand up. I will just need to find a place to have it done, that is not an area I have done much finishing myself, and I hate finishing canvas projects - the canvas is just too darn stiff and hard on the fingers.

Happy Stitching!!
