This is likely to be a rambler of a post.
Cheryl is awesome.
Both off my wishlist. OMG, love love love. And Cheryl is obviously in cahoots with Silkweaver or has the most awesome timing ever because Silkweaver’s got 18 x 25 cuts of lugana on sale for $12 (selected colors). I bought a double cut of Wandering Ivy to stitch And A Garden Grew on, and considering it’s stitched with dmc – this is going to be the cheapest BAP ever.
I’ve also *finally* finished all the smalls that were being made from the notorious MiraRR. Really, what the hell happened with this one? Two stolen, one missing – now found!, one taken as replacement for the two stolen, and a stitcher having to drop out because of illness. Maybe I should call an exorcist in for the WWRR BB….
Rather than repeat the photos of the small here, go take a look here and you can see them all.
My cleaning lady! is coming on Sunday (she’s squeezing me this week) so I’ve got to clean house. 😉 I *know*, by clean I mean pick up the piles of stuff that are on just about every flat surface upstairs. Downstairs will take me 20 minutes, so that’s not a big deal. It’s the guest/sewing room that is scaring me. I’ve already spent some time in there and you wouldn’t know it to look at it.
I haven’t made it back to HoHRH yet. I’ve tried, but when I did I found block #1 has mistakes. *sigh* Luckily I noticed before I stitched the wrong colors.Took me about 30 minutes to track those down and by then the internet had totally sucked me and I didn’t stitch. Granted it was midnight… but still. Maybe if I quit taking a hour to post to the blog I’ll have time to squeeze in a few stitches before I have to leave for Win’s fencing.
What else… I don’t think I mentioned it; I’ve got contacts again! It is so nice not to have to wear glasses all the time. I’ve bought 3 pairs of sunglasses in the week that I’ve had contacts. 😀
I bought a bathing suit last night – with no tears. Granted I’m not thrilled to death – but I’m also fairly confident no one will avert their eyes in horror. Tonight during fencing I’m hoping to find a few cute tops and maybe some capris for the trip.
That’s about it, I’m going to go stitch.
