Two More Miras

Having this many projects started is killing me.  I am so afraid that I will not remember which is which, but I started an organizational method that I believe will work.

This week, I only managed to get two more started.  I should have been done with the one new start each day on the 15th, but my schedule just hasn't allowed me to do it.  

First up: Seaside Kingdom by Mirabilia on 28 ct Lugana by Hand Dyed by Stephanie in Nantucket Sky
Second start was the Letter T by Nora Corbett on 28ct Lugana - Spring Breeze by Stephanie Bishop.

I am really happy with both of these.  I only have one more that I can start since I am still waiting on fabric for the other three.  The good news, is that I can put some of the others back in rotation and keep stitching until the fabric shows up. Yay.

As for the organization, here is what my stitching room looks like right now:
 As you can see, the stand is front and center.  Since I have to have a movie playing, the computer is on the stand next to me, and my iPad is on the other side.  The drawer holds some tools, but it's the bags and pillow cases that really help me out. (My plan is to get a real chair and mount a TV on the opposite wall.  I also intend to add a floor Ott Lite rather than the small one.)

The larger project has to stay on the stand.  The scrolls bars were made, specifically, for this project since it is so large.  I have a new pillow case on order from Marie O'Neil of Just Add Needles.

She has done some great pouches for me, and I have a few more on order with her.  I hand picked the outer fabric, and she is going to work her magic.  Yay!! I know that I'll have more projects going this year as I prepare for the holidays, and I don't want to keep more than one in a pouch in case I need to grab it and go.

The pouches are great - I will have one for all seasons and for my tastes when Marie is done with my list.

The best part is that each is lined, and the larger ones have a tool pouch on the inside.  As you can see, I have the floss organizer with the project labeled which is helping me to remember what I was working on.  The floss holders are inside the pillow cases as well.
I won't be able to get scroll rods made for the largest project which will be an entire yard of fabric. I'm still trying to decide how to complete that one when the fabric arrives, but it will be worth it in the end.
