The Story Time Sampler doesn't come out until 5 PM PST (I'm in Central), so I had a little bit of time this morning between dropping off and picking up my son at Pre-K to pull out All Things Noah to start my rotation schedule.
Now, I honestly don't remember when I bought this piece or why. I think I intended it as a gift at some point, and I know I worked on it in college and stopped working on it when I got engaged in 2001 and had lots of wedding gifts to stitch. And I know I've grown as a stitcher since I worked on this since the threads aren't organized in any cohesive way (let's play find the thread and compare to the piece!) and my half stitches don't face the "right" way, but it's an adorable piece so I'm not going to give up on it yet.
I worked on the giraffe motif today:
The half stitches in the background are hard to see. I had to frog several times to force myself to do the half stitches in the "wrong" direction because they had already been done behind the lion and I want to keep it consistent, even if "wrong".
Put this away for now! I have some things I have to do around the house before Story Time comes out, and that will then be in my hoop until I get that installment done. Can't wait!
Until next time!
