I feel kinda twee stitching this free pattern, with all its positivity and nice words.
On the other hand, it’s a good counter to the creepy of what I’m currently watching, which is full of ghosts and ghouls and demons and other such nasties.
Might even turn it into the phone case it’s designed to be, though I’ve misplaced the felt it came with…Expect I’ve got some spare somewhere.
Aside from the detailing, which I don’t tend to think of as part of the project, my elephants are complete. And within the month. Quite pleased.
I’m supposed to be preparing for NaNoWriMo this month. Planning and fixing plot-holes. Generally getting ready for no social life while I attempt to burn out writing a complete first draft. Or half complete.
Instead, I’m finding new things to watch and stitching like it’s going out of fashion…
I’m in two minds about filling in those four elephants – I quite like them as outlines. Bit like a pen and ink drawing. But I’m pleased with my progress on this piece.
I’ve been stitching more this week than I have in a while. Makes a difference when I actually like the pattern I’m working with.
Baby elephants learning to balance.
It’s been a while since I’ve found a good Project of the Month. I’ve been having trouble with patterns – the sort where you start and then don’t finish them.
I’ve done a couple of small ones, ones which take a couple of evenings, but nothing to cross off my list…
I’m hoping my October Project will though. A baby-elephant-pyramid.
