TAC : C is for…

C is for catch-up. Which is what I’m still trying to do with the rest of my TAC classmates.

C is for Challenge

Michele of Heaven and Earth Designs has set up a challenge on the Facebook page. The target is to complete 400 stitches by 28 November 2015. This is just the kick in the pants I needed to get cracking on my WIP. I’ve been diligently trying to put in some work on my selected piece, I Remember Moonlight by Adele Sessler.

It has been really really REALLY slow going because I am stuck in Confetti Central. I seem to be changing colors every one or two stitches. It’s so bad I am tempted to just fudge some of the colors. I’m sure no one would ever notice, right? Right?

C is for Crete

Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and we were blessed to spend a few blissful days there in April 2015. There is so much to say about Greece but I simply cannot do it justice in a TAC post. For now, all I will say is that Crete is an island filled with wonder, a land of beauty beyond imagination.

  1. Cute little cow. I think you are doing great with the letters. Your I Remember Moonlight piece is definitely full of confetti. I would have no idea how to venture from the pattern. But if you don’t, just remember that each stitch is getting you closer to the finish. I have to tell myself that sometimes when I am stitching a color or are I don’t like. “just keep swimming” I tell myself 😉 You will get through. It’s looking great. The pictures of Crete are so beautiful! Looks like a lovely place to take a vacation.

    1. Lol… is that a cow? All this time I thought it was a hippo! 😀 I may need to get my animals straight 😛

      The Moonlight is ridiculously full of confetti. At least the area I was working on last week. I think the worst of it is over… for now! And coincidentally ‘Just keep swimming’ is EXACTLY what I was singing to myself when all I wanted to do was abandon this piece 🙂

        1. Haha… O no the sampler just has a handful of animals that appear in different positions with different alphabets. I guess they had a hard time designing an animal for each letter 😉

          Thanks Ginny for your encouragement. With such a lovely cheering squad to keep me motivated I may just get a page finish this month 🙂 :*

    1. Thank you Ramona! 🙂 They are adorable but sneakishly (is that a word?) challenging because of all the color changes in such a small area. Not to mention the backstitch. But the end result is so cute I don’t mind 🙂

      You should visit Crete if you get a chance. It is beautiful. Then again which place in Greece isn’t? 🙂
