For all my good intentions, I couldn't even make it a month without a new start! I blame it all on Nora Corbett, who has yet to design something that I don't want to stitch, and who keeps putting out new designs on the 15th of every month!
In January she released two new Pixie designs, "Waterlily" and "Ladyslipper", and of course I loved them both. But of the two, Ladyslipper was the one I liked the best, even though the majority of people who commented on them preferred Waterlily. So you see, I had to start Ladyslipper, because it didn't sound like anyone else would!
Here is what the chart photo looks like:
Unfortunately, SMF closed down several years ago, so these gorgeous fabrics are hard to find anymore. Luckily, my stashoholism was in full force during the years she was open, and I acquired quite a hoard of her fabrics! It reminds me of an episode of "Seinfeld", in which Elaine was stockpiling "the sponge" birth control; she evaluated each man she dated for "spongeworthiness". I evaluate each design I stitch for "SMF-worthiness"! You probably have to be a stitcher to understand. ;)
So I will stitch away (guilt-ridden) on my Ladyslipper; I'm thinking she will probably be finished around the 15th of February, just in time for the release of one of Nora's BIG designs!! But no, I will be climbing back up on the wagon, back to my role as the WIP Slayer!
