Changing Projects

I've been doing a rotation for the past couple of months, but instead of using time, I'm using blocks with a block being approximately 1000 stitches or 10 10x10 blocks when that makes sense and deciding on how much I want to complete when it doesn't.

The first project in my rotation is Forest Chapel, a painting by Thomas Kinkade adapted for cross stitch by Candamar Designs.  This is the smaller version and will be 6" x 8" when complete.  I don't have a picture of it for the start of this rotation, but below is where I'm at now.  Only two more passes and it should be complete.  (I don't know why this is scanning crooked; this is the better of the two scans.)

My second project is the January Cottage by Country Cottage Needleworks.  I don't have much done on this one because I was using Fiddlers Light and I didn't like the way the white showed up--it basically didn't --so I started it over on a 28-count Jobelan from my stash; I'm not sure of the color, but it's pretty close to what's shown.  I plan to do the house, the rest of the top border and the rest of January before switching to the next project.

Beautiful work. I always have two or three cross stitch projects going and sometimes a crochet one. I tend to change whenever the spirit moves me.
