So after I caught up on my SALS in the last post, I realized that I hadn't planned what project to start next. I usually have my next project in mind while I'm working on one. I'm a one-at-a-time stitcher, so no WIP's waiting in the wings. This happened on the night of the Oscars and I couldn't imagine watching an awards show without stitching at the same time. I looked through my recent freebie downloads and the CEC Primrose Carrot caught my eye. It fascinated me because it used a lot of colors, but the chart was in black and white with no accompanying color photo. I couldn't visualize the completed design at all. I laughed because the designer encourages you to pick your own colors. Not sure how I would have been able to that. Luckily I had an appropriate piece of linen and all the DMC colors in my stash, so it became a mystery stitch for me. It was so much fun to stitch and see the design in color come to life gradually. On 32-count evenweave, it's a bit too long for a book mark, so I made a little mat to use as a resting spot for my iPad-mini. I'm quite happy with it.
And I did one more block of El's ABC SAL. Still love these quick little squares.
