My Next Big Project??

I'm feeling lost without another big project, but not sure what I want to stitch next. 2013 is winding down, so I'm trying to plan my 2014 projects (big and small).

I am working on the cross stitch ball shapes, but I still haven't decided what to stitch inside each shape. There are 26 in total (6 Octagons/8 Hexagons/12 Squares). Maybe an ABC ball because there are 26 letters and I have 26 shapes to stitch. Or I could stitch a flower inside each shape. I have 8 hexagons to stitch, then all of the shapes are completed.

I would love to start one of my Just Nan 3D ornaments, but I cannot because I joined the Just Nan 2014 SAL. It only starts on January 1, 2014.

I could finally start my Cat's Whiskers Garden Chair. I bought the pattern several years ago, but there was always something else to stitch. Mine will look very different. I am using purple/green/beige DMC floss, stitched on 32ct ivory evenweave. I have to stitch this at home because I will need my lamp and magnifier it is over 1 on 32ct and I usually stitch over 2 on 28ct.

I need to pull all the DMC floss for the Stoney Creek Paradise Banner, then I will decide what colour 28ct evenweave to buy. I want to stitch the letters a bright colour - maybe fuchsia, yellow or orange. I will decide once I pull all the other floss colours. I want a colour that will stand out against all the other items. This project I will take to the Cross Stitch Club on Tuesday nights.

Sometimes there are too many decisions. :)

  1. I think you could have started your Just Nan piece a few days early! Sshhh! I won't tell. I've seen someone else finish the Paradise banner and she used a pretty turquoise blue for the letters. Have fun stitching it!

  2. That's where I got the idea of changing the letters, I saw Jeremiah's mom's blog and decided to do the same thing. I'm going for a Hawaiian theme.
