Rites of Spring Finis

Rites of Spring - design by Blackbird Designs
Home dyed 28 count linen
Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colours fiber

Yeah! I finished up Rites of Spring last night on the way home from work. I literally had six inches of green fibers left. Glad that worked out because I certainly wasn't going to wait to finish this waiting for a fiber order to come in the mail. :-)

I tossed Medallions in my bag for the ride to and from work today. In a perfect stitching world I'd finish this in July but since July is here for only one more day after today, that is not going to happen. But I would like to finish it before I start another new piece. I'm working out what new piece that is in my head was I write this. I have so many options I'm not sure which direction to go in. I've been building up my stash of fat 1/4s of Silkweavers linen. I had managed to use all the big cuts I've received over the past two years as a member of the wish list program so I had to change all my wishes to the double cuts. So I can start on a piece as large as that if I want. I'm also thinking I'd like to start Cirque des Cercles from Ink Circles. I've had that chart ready to go since it first came out almost two years ago. It would be nice to get it off my to do list.

Interesting how the photo looks so different in google reader (white background) than it does with the brown background. Lovely both ways!
