Not feeling the gameboard love


As you can see below, I finished my February ornament.

In todays picture you can see the tiny progress I made in the couple hours of attention the gameboard got this weekend. I have totally hit the wall on this project. You can also see the way I organize my threads when I stitch something that has lots of fibers. I use a homemade palette and put the symbols on it so that I never have to look at the key on the chart again. This keeps me from having to wind floss back on the bobbin or from having a little rats nest of stray threads in my bag.
(24 houses-23 motifs)

This week I'm going to treat myself to something I've not touched in a long time and enjoy every stitch.

Winter's Eve, with color changes.

You guessed it. The trim on my house is this color. But only because my husband wouldn't go for dark purple. MEN!

Cute little finish Adana. I actually put my DTGB away yesterday. I have too many BAP projects going right now. I decided two is plenty and the game board didn't make the cut, LOL. It's on my short list but VoHRH and Mary Beale's Advent Sampler are the two I kept out.

I hit walls on my big projects too. It is looking very nice, at least you got some stitching done on it :D

I like the way you organize your threads.
