Re-start and the Rotation

Here is a pic of Mini Soul Mates about a week after the re-start.
I'm stitching her across from right to left. I am pleased with her progress.


I am working out a new rotation to include the wonderful new starts but I haven't quite decided what I want to do. I've enjoyed the one I worked out for this year, having a wild card week every other week, but I am thinking about changing to less than a week just so I can have the fun of stitching on different ones more often. We'll have to see, there are dozens of ways to work a rotation.

Unfortunately I have hurt myself (neck) working in the yard and don't know when I'll be able to stitch. Nothing serious but darn it, not now!

On a brighter front I was able to confirm yesterday that my Walmart has started carrying DMC floss again. This is great news because it it not only much closer to home than Michael's and Hobby Lobby but the cost per skein is 10 to 13 cents lower than what others are asking. On my budget that makes a big difference.

I also took part in the HAEDless SAL again and got a little work done on Cheryl's Bouquet.

And after:





Have a happy day!

Great news about your Walmart, I was so upset when they took the fabric department out of my Super Store. Now they have yarn, and notions - but no DMC..

Both your WIPS look awesome. I am struggling so on a rotation. I think I need to be honest with myself, wondering if I will ever be able to keep one going. I am forever changing my mind

Melinda, I was happy when my Walmart brought back the fabric section, but I'm thrilled about the floss! lol.

I know what you mean about struggling with your rotation, it wasn't a problem when I only worked 1 piece at a time but now there are more than I'd like to admit. I'm not particularly concerned with a finish, I just don't want to be so long between working on my favorite lovelies!
