Back to Wonderland

Wednesday, September 3, 2008

I've been doing some thinking about the ginormous amount of WIP's I have. They're almost all HAED's and I just keep adding them, not finishing anything. Well, I really, really want to finish something. I've also been thinking about what I really wanted in the first place, which is to do the three Alice in Wonderland pieces by Scott Gustafson. These were my first HAED purchases. I think I'm going to concentrate on getting these done. I'd like to see all three of them hanging together in my stitching room. So... that being said, the three Alice's will become my focal pieces from now on. I don't know exactly what this means, I've never been able to stick to a strict rotation.

I worked on Advice From a Caterpiller last night. Will probably work on Mad Tea Party tonight. We'll see :)

Here is my progress on AFAC last night:

I've been thinking also about my weird attraction to things that come in sets. I shy away from cross stitch charts that don't have companion pieces. I can't imagine hanging just a single piece without something to "go" with it. Even if there were, let's say, elephants. If the elephants were all different, at least they have a theme. It's really hard to explain. Even when I fall in love with a piece (like I did with Steam Punk Fairy), I have to force myself to get over the fact that there aren't companion pieces in order to buy it. Sheesh, is this some vestage of OCD or something? Who knows. Anyway, my next "set" I'm thinking of would be to do Moonstones, Mask of Colors (one of them), and Viva. Talk about a life sentence... those would probably take forever to finish. First I have finish SOMETHING!
