Well, I debated for a day or so, and finally decided to take out what I had done on Inspiration. Since that was not much, it was not really a big deal. What settled the matter was measuring. Although the piece of fabric...which is huge by the way...looks almost square, it should be slightly longer one way. So before I created a disaster, I decided to remeasure and make sure I was stitching the right way on the fabric. When I measured, I remembered that I had done a smart thing. Since this piece is large, I had decided to leave 4 inches all around instead of 3 inches. That meant I had an extra inch that would help the fabric stay in the qnap better. I tried to use 11 inch qsnaps but it's just too much to handle without my arm getting tired. This should be a joy to stitch, not a chore. So I went back to my 8 inch qsnaps. I started the border again last night, and it was SO much easier to stitch. I really enjoyed it. I realized that I had been avoiding it because it was not comfortable. So I hope to get some done on it now.
Last fall and on through Christmas I had been stitching smaller seasonal things and really enjoyed it. I had picked out several snow-themed things that I was really looking forward to stitching as soon as the holiday stuff was out of the way. Then I saw the Inspiration SAL right at the end of the year and it was kind of an impulse thing. But that leaves me with my snow things that I still want to stitch. I have done Got Carrot? and started on The Trilogy's Warm Hearts. I think I'll still stitch on those which should be fairly quick and easy. I am loving the feeling of accomplishment of finishing so many things lately.
I also finished a design called Snow Tuck by SanMan Originals that I have to cut down and put in the little tuck hanging that it goes in. I hope to get that done later today and then I can post a picture. I also have 2 more ornaments that I finished that just need charms sewed on, and I'll try to get them done and post pictures of them as well.
