I thought that I would just work on the borders a bit, then go back to Hawaiian Mandala, but as you can see I got involved in the next motif, Cherries, and finished the leaves and branch. I probably will finish off the fruit, too, though I should go back to Hawaiian Mandala. I have just today and tomorrow to work on it. On Wednesday we fly to San Francisco for a week and Mandala does not travel.
I like the colors in this pattern, since unlike Chiloe, I do like green. I'll need to find some new things to stitch in San Francisco since this weekend is the Christmas Ornament SAL and the Stitch-A-Thon weekend. I'd say that whatever I work on will probably have a Christmas theme. I could start Michael Powell's Mini Christmas Windows II, but that is a little big to count as a ornament. I have started looking through my JCS Ornament issues, but haven't decided on anything yet. I keep being drawn to things that are too big for ornaments. I really need to find something smaller so I can have a finish in March. Instead I find myself wanting to start complex projects like the Miribilia Christmas trees. I have enough WiPs, I don't need more.
There really hasn't been much to blog about this past week. I find myself sleeping a lot lately, including long "naps". There are a lot of email and projects that I need to work on. So I better get in gear and start working on them.
