For the Stitchers Among You

I have two WIPs that I’m extreme­ly unlike­ly to ever work on again. Celtic Christ­mas is love­ly, but I’m just not into stitch­ing it for some rea­son. After sev­en years, I’m fair­ly con­fi­dent that I’m not going to get in the mood to work on it. Heart of Ros­es was­n’t ever my style. It was intend­ed as a gift for some­one for whom it is no longer appro­pri­ate. I did a lit­tle stitch­ing on both of them, though not much.

Nei­ther project is ter­ri­bly dif­fi­cult by my stan­dards, although Celtic Christ­mas is fair­ly large and might be a wee bit intimidating.

I’m look­ing for homes for both pieces. I want them to go to some­one who will enjoy stitch­ing them and will find a good home for them when they’re done (with them­selves or some­one else, I don’t care which). I thought of giv­ing one to some­one who I know to be a stitch­er, but I fear she’d feel oblig­at­ed in some way and not be able to say no if she did­n’t real­ly want to do it.

I have the linen and pat­tern for each of these pieces. I don’t believe either uses any spe­cial­ty fibers, oth­er than a lit­tle Kreinik for Celtic Christ­mas. It involves some beads, too. I have the Kreinik and the beads some­where and will send them along when I kit that one up. If I have extra skeins of the DMC col­ors used, I’ll include those as well.

I’ll be hap­py to help you get start­ed if you like (assum­ing you’re either local or will­ing to vis­it, obviously).

I’ll feel less guilty about not fin­ish­ing these projects when they’re being enjoyed by some­one else. And hey, you’ll be help­ing me declutter!

Edit: Homes found! Thank you!
