New Start - Metamorphisis

So as many of you know I've been struggling with Stitch From Stash. And I have a bit of an idea as to why...
I haven't really stitched anything new! Instead I've just tried to stop buying as much stuff which is not rewarding.
So I decided regardless of how many projects and goals I have right now I'm going to start something new. Guilt free (or so I'm trying to tell myself)
I have picked a project that's not a "small" but likely to be a quick project and one I am stitching and had kitted up just because I love the design and the colors. No reason to do it except that I want to.

So here is the kitted up project from my stash. I didn't have to buy or reorganize anything; this project was ready to in my stash.



It's called "Metamorphosis" by Ink Circles (yep a Mel fave designer). I am using the exact Gentle Arts colors called for. The linen is a bit lighter and different. I can't remember exactly the brand it is but it's a 32-count linen.

I'm hoping this start helps curtail some spending. And maybe I can make "mini deals" with myself to stitch Dragons so much and then work on this as a reward.
Worth trying I figure!

Carissa said...

Oh, I like this one and hope to do it myself some day! Enjoy stitching your 'new' stash!

Shelly said...

Enjoy your new start! Whatever it takes I say! A new start always works for me, even when I know it'll end up on WIP Mountain!

Irene said...

Good on you!
Also, if you don't feel like working on dragons, don't. You'll probably come back to it later with renewed interest (I know it works for me).

Bekca said...

Sounds like a good plan Mel, stitch whatever feels fun :) Looking forward to seeing your new project grow!
Best wishes.
