A new WIP .....

I have a new WIP B.O.P.    That means ...... Big Ole Project.  I like that saying better than the one that is normally used to describe a HUGE project.

I kept forgetting to take my WIP pictures when starting this new MBT 10 Commandments project.  Don't worry.  I am still working on my Smalls and gifts for this year.  I HAVE to be stitching on something!!!

I am stitching this on 36ct Legacy Linen by Picture This Plus using Gloriana Midnight for the blue border and words and NPI 503 red for the accent color.

Here is where I'm at as of today.  Please don't ask me when I started it.  I just know it was sometime around Valentine's Day weekend.  I did have to make the small hash marks with just DMC 640 to count out every 20 squares and the longer hash marks are every 100 count.

Yes....I did count and recount the hash marks 4X to make sure I had counted the correct number for the border.  I know I'm stitching all over the place but I'm trying to mix it up some as the entired inner border is the same pattern all the way around.  But that can be a good thing too.  That way you know the pattern but still have to pay attention where it is all placed.  Trust me.  I was talking on the phone to my mom and stitched in part of a "floral motif" and had left 1 space too many.  Rip it out.  Restitch it back in.  DID THE SAME THING a second time.  UGH  Rip out again.....restitch it in for a 3rd time!

But as the old saying you sew, so shall you rip!  And I did.  That's ok though as I find joy in the journey of stitching even if I do have to rip out something.

Happy Stitching!
