The time has come to assemble my AMH EPP project. I started the first row over the weekend. I have many, many small stitches to make before this done, but I cannot tell you just how happy I am with this project.I love everything about these flowery stars. Those fussy cut pieces just make me grin from ear to ear. And the jumbled diamond stars are the perfect thing to make your eye pause. It’s enough to make me giddy–although that could be attributed to the coffee, I suppose. All I know for sure is this project is one of my all time favorites.
As I work on these rows, I’m listening to lute and guitar. Very relaxing and it seems to fit into the Christmas spirit somehow. Maybe it’s the fact that lute music makes me think of medieval halls with hung tapestries, roaring fires, spiced wine and the wandering minstrel. Very Kingkiller chronicles, that. I’m not sure why I would equate all that with Christmas and Yule but I do.
Do you have music you find especially suited to handwork? Or do you prefer to work in silence?
