Hi everyone. I hope your day is going well and your week starts with a smile. Not much to show on ...what's her name? Good grief I can't remember who I'm stitching. That means she should have been done by now and this is dragging out. Extenuating circumstances are the cause but I really don't think it will take too much longer. The script doesn't take as long to stitch, and if I would remember that I changed 613 to ..... I can't remember ..... I would not have to remove the stitching and do it again in ..... damn..... I think it was 3021? I know it was much darker.
I should have written the color changes somewhere, and I could very well have. Remember the notes I tape to the back of the TV so I know where to find them? Well they're gone since it had sheets over and off, over and off, and most fell to the floor and were swept away. I'm lost. I'll go back and check where 613 should have been and will certainly be able to find the color I used. My floss bags for the project are all neatly hanging on the holder so matching will be easy.
We made a trip to the farmer's market and I bought yellow wax beans for drying. The green beans that turned to a light tan are my favorite and these will probably dry way too light, but I wanted to see. Like I have nothing better to do, but the time involved in stringing them is minimal.
While I sat on my swing sewing beans, everything looked so bare. Flowers are gone, hydrangeas are trimmed back, most of my tubs are hung, but two things remain every season.
Mom's wind chimes and Old Glory. I have two sets of these chimes and they make the most beautiful cathedral sounds.
The inside has changed too. My fridge is no longer in the dining room (but I still go in looking for it), and I found that having the table turned to this position in this small room creates more open space.
I like it. Husband does not. I try to avoid having dinner/parties/company as much as possible so this space is rarely used anyway. The new room will be large enough for two tables if I get trapped into being a hostess. When mom was here, I had all birthdays, holidays and such to make it easier for her, and I don't have the energy or desire to host these days.
Now the little parlor, a.k.a. my stash room, is a different story. All the samplers, supplies, and smalls were thrown in here and covered, along with furniture and items from the new room, and it is not in order yet.
Debi was kind enough to identify the punch needle in the prior post. Thank you Debi!! I went to Pattern Mart to purchase and download. If you're interested, you can find it here from Bird in Hand Primitives. I see that I need a locked lip hoop. Not sure what it is but sounds like something my husband would be happy to buy. I like the look of a smaller loop so I may use 3 strands with the finer needle. Listen to me. I know NOTHING about this and never tried it. First I need to get the necessary supplies, practice, and lock my lips. Easier said than done.
Thanks for visiting - have a great week.
