Again, there really isn't any weekly stitching to show. I didn't post last night because I was too busy watching Miranda (aka I was too lazy to get up from the couch). I left off on Tartan B in January of 2016...I was working on it while babysitting my Grandmother when my Aunt was having surgery. I knew I screwed it up somewhere, so I gridded it, but I couldn't find the mistake and I just didn't deal with it again.
But when I picked it back up Thursday night, it was readily apparent where I screwed up and by the time I frogged all the bad stuff and restitched it, I pretty much didn't get any further than where I left off last year:
Sad and pathetic. I've got to figure out a plan to get my stitchy bug back. I don't want to start anything new until I finish something (I've got way too many WIPs going), but I've got nothing close enough to being finished to hold my focus. That's why I thought maybe Tartan B would be a wise choice, but I had forgotten how much I hate this piece. Besides, my whole "turning it into a pillow" idea is still a pretty sucky one considering I still don't know how to even make a pillow, let alone get a hold of some actual Blair Tartan material for the back (which was the original plan).
Both boys did get haircuts though. Bam has never actually been to a groomer before, I've always done it myself and he went full on drama king:
Et tu mommy
Bugs is an old pro now though:
I held my ground and refused to plant the lilacs, but my parents and Aunt took care of it. Ironically enough, my poor Wisteria hasn't given up just yet and she's almost as big now as the new trees! HA! That'll show 'em!
I'm still working on my second Jasmine Becket-Griffith wall. I got my new prints in today, but I've got to get them framed. Maybe I need to work on Alice and the B's since I'm in such a Jasmine mood. Not sure I want to change out the stand tonight though.
