Too Many Leaves?

Christmas tree time meant re-arranging the furniture in the living room. After Christmas, not everything went back to where it began, including my beading table. It really fits better in a part of the room that does not have a line of sight to the TV. I’m finding that I’m not doing as much beading that way. It helps to glance up at the screen and re-focus my eyes when I work…and I like to watch football and hockey!

I’ve been doing quite a bit of embroidery, because I can curl up on the couch to do that. I guess I’m going to have to break down and move the furniture again. It’s a long, rectangular room, without much choice for placement. I’d rather bead than make a fashion statement, though, so it’s back to the old arrangement!

So why does my header ask about leaves, you ask? Because that’s what I’ve been embroidering! When I last used leaves for stamping, I did several. And then I had a thermofax screen made from one of those prints and I made a few more. Then I won a blog giveaway and got some more leaf screens. Whooooooa, Nelly!

It’s really time to start using up those prints, and my Weekly Special project is just the spot for it.

Don’t know exactly how many of these I have, but it doesn’t really matter. I have a whole year of stitching planned for small pieces and these will be perfect. I just need to get my spot set up for beading again, since many of these will certainly need the sparkle of beads added to them!

At least this one is finished! Only 51 to go…do I really want to count? I don’t think so. Just keep stitching!
