Feeling a Little Lost

I have been fooling around with weaving strips of cloth, a la Jude Hill and Heike Gerbig.  And I'm hoping to take Jude's upcoming Cloth to Cloth 2 class, unless I get locked out. So this may be a bit of subconscience preparation for that.

I'm not at all sure what I'm doing with the stitching on this piece. I started out thinking I wanted all the stitches to be in the white-cream-taupe range. Lately I've thought maybe it would be interesting to add some very pale pink and icy blue. And every time I look at it, I think about how I actually really like the big, red basting stitches!

I haven't worked on it much yet and some of what little I've done is no more. For example, I've done some stitching and then ripped it all out - twice! This is because I am  having a hard time choosing the right thread weight. The piece sits in the family room - I like to sew while watching TV, so I don't feel like I'm wasting my time.  I keep whatever I'm working on and all the associated supplies on a nice big bread board which sits on my lap and becomes my work table.

I'll be glad when I finally get cracking and do some meaningful work on this little baby. Right at the moment, it seems so lost.
