Crazy January Challenge - Day 12
I stitched a tiny bit - blackwork works up quickly, so it looks like more than it is - I want to come back to this one soon, and be able to work on it more without pain.
You can't tell what it's going to be yet - it's a 5 x 7 project, and will be a UU flaming chalice - the saying at the top is a short bit from a popular UU hymn and says "Spirit of Life, come unto me". This is my own design, and the finished sampler is going to a donation to the UU church I attend when I'm out in Maryland. They hold an annual auction to help raise funds to keep the congregation funded, and I'm hoping this will be a desireable auction piece. I'm not sure when it is this year - sometime in the spring, so I'll be coming back to this soon.
That's all I'm going to say today - my fingertips hurt! Go away, winter.
