Yesterday was a total wash in terms of stitching projects. First, it is the day I work 10-6, but since Little Bit goes to daycare at the usual time, I have about an hour and a half to myself to stitch. It isn't worth driving home from daycare and then back to work - what a waste of gas and stitching time! - so I find either a quiet parking spot or coffee shop and relax. Well, yesterday I had "Labyrinth" in a bag and I thought all ready to go...until I took it out and discovered I had the fabric, pattern, and needle, but no floss! I did have the Victoria Sampler "New York" Hearts of America kit in my bag, too, but the specialty stitching really needs some sort of fabric tension and I didn't have a hoop or a frame, either. I did a little bit of the regular cross stitching anyway, and then put it away. Sigh.
At work we've been discarding old VHS tapes, and someone asked if I could use the empty clear VHS boxes for some sort of crafty thing. I had the brilliant idea that I could put my hand-dyed fabric in them - even sort it by color and count, and then have them all lined up the shelves nicely. When I got home, I was all excited to start trying this...but the boxes are too small to hold much more than one or two pieces of fabric, which is barely worth it. Booo.
I stitched for about an hour last night on the Stag Sampler, but I was all fidgety and distracted, so there isn't much to share.

Related to my latest finish - it is stitched on 32-ct. linen. I started out stitching with 2 strands of floss, but quickly decided that I d...

This is the little mermaid pattern I started the other night - a freebie. There was no color key, so I'm using: Crescent Colors "...
