A Finish and a New Start

with 10 Comments

I had a finish on Saturday. The Millennium Birthday Cat. Today I have started the October Millennium Cat. I’m planning on changing them over each month, in a small black frame.
I’ve been looking for a monthly series that wasn’t primitive and not to big. If anybody knows of a series, please let me know.

    Are you going to mount them on cardboard backing or something similar to make switching them out easier? I’ve looked at the clear plastic that comes in big sheets to be used as a cutting surface for quilting with something like that in mind; it’s fairly thin, but firm.
    I have a flowers-of-the-month set put aside to do eventually, and the Joyful World SAL would make a cute set, too. I’ve always wanted a perpetual calendar I could swap out projects into that way, but I saw one years ago and then never again. I regret not grabbing that one.

      Yes I’m thinking a thin piece of cardboard, then I can slot in and out. The clear plastic sheet sounds a good idea to. Never looked at quilting things. The perpetual calendar sounds great. What a shame you never got it or found it again. I’d have been interested too.

        I DOH myself regularly for not grabbing that, especially when I find a four seasons set that would have gone well in it. I have one with hearts that I really like in stash. The season words are in French, I think (?), so I got the bright idea to do them in Scots Gaelic instead. Enter my husband:
        “Honey, do you know what the Gaelic word for ‘spring’ is?”
        “It’s fuckin’ raining, aye.”
        “Ah. And ‘summer’?”
        “It’s fuckin’ raining, aye.”
        …I’m sure you can guess how the rest of that conversation went. 😀

          Hehe that’s funny. I’d like a set of 4 seasons. Cross stitch collection had a nice set not long ago lol 😄

            It is SO tempting to put that on all four of them.
            The hearts are here, if you want a peek at them,a long with a bunch of other free charts: http://www.passionericamo.eu/page2ingl.htm And that’s Italian, not French. Dorf on Languages strikes again. 🙂

      This Aida is very thick so I really don’t need too

        I know it wouldn’t break my heart to be able to skip that step on any project. The main reason I don’t frame my own work is that I don’t get things centered and straight without a lot of cussing and redoing. (Bright new face, still me. 🙂 )

    I’ve come to be an enabler on seasonal projects again. 😀

        They’re not a set I’d do, either, though they come close; I really like autumn and the dragonfly band on spring, but not the rest.
