In order to resist the temptation of stitching the more colourful lighthouse project, I decided that the 'out of sight, out of mind' approach was the only one that would work for me....in reality it's more a case of it being out of reach rather than out of mind...but hey, it's working! So, the lighthouse project is packed away out of sight (but not out of mind) in another room so that I'm not tempted to pick it up and do "just one length of that lovely pink in the sky" ...which never happens, because just one length of thread then becomes two lengths, then three lengths and then...well you know how it goes!!!
Anyhoo, this is what Twilight Silhouette looked like last week.....
...and the thought of stitching hundreds and hundreds of little black x's on to navy fabric really wasn't all that exciting, as I'm sure you can imagine! I really didn't want to stitch all that boring black, but changed my attitude when I realized that since there was sooooo much black to do, it meant that for great big chunks of the design I didn't have to do any counting and didn't really have to concentrate too hard, soooo, I could really watch a move (not just listen to it) while I stitched....yayyy!! (and yes, I'm enjoying the italics today!!!)
So after a couple of movies (no popcorn though!), this is how these sweet fairies look now....
Quite a change!
Sadly for me though, since most of the black area is done, it means that now I'm back to having to count my stitches and just listen to movies again!
Until next time...happy stitching!
