I said I was going to stitch "Glory in the Morning." Instead, I started this one:
It's by Blackberry Lane Designs and called
"Nativity Story Square Table Topper"
Three colors, Navy, Yellow and Gold.
I bought the pattern and the fabric five or six years ago. I also bought some hand dyed thread to use instead of using DMC floss.
Just to try something different ;)
I'm working on the star first. Of course the star consists of the yellow blended with the metallic gold floss. Which is reminding me why I hate stitching with metallic floss. I love the end result, but hate the actual stitching. Metallic floss just twists and knots and doesn't lay as flat as it should. Thankfully, the star is the only place I'm using it!
I will stitch "Glory" it's just when I started getting ready to pull the floss, I found I really just didn't want to do it. This project jumped out and said, "stitch me, stitch me!" instead. You should always listen to projects that beg to be stitched.
When I bought this, I thought I'd frame it and hang it above our couch at Christmas. Don't know if it will be finished for this Christmas, but the thought has entered my mind that this might make a nice Christmas gift.
We will see what my instincts tell me to do once it's finished.
