Hiya. How the heck are you? I'm about menopaused out. Ishkaboobled day I had, let me tell you! Nothing went right and the more frustrated I became, the hotter the flash, the more chocolate I ate, the more potty mouth I yelled.
But anyway, I finished a little project. My interfacing choice of late has been lightweight but it really doesn't feel like that. For this little pillow I tried the midweight and guess what? Unless my mind is backwards, it feels lighter than the lightweight. Very nice body and stiffness. I'll have to do a comparison on the same fabric to really tell. For now, my ideal weight is this one. To avoid choices, decisions, and confusion, I would rather have one product to use for all projects. It just makes my life easier. That little 3 drawer chest that was going to hold three needle sizes - forget it. I'm sticking with one size and getting rid of the rest.
Here's the little pillow. I found this chart, Dutch Sampler, when I was doing the Ebay listings and planned on selling it, but I'm glad I changed my mind. I think this design fits a lot of decors, even primitive, and it was a very quick and easy stitch. There is an error on the chart but easily corrected. It's OOP but on Ebay right now and Etsy.
This is the book. The sampler is very nice also but I really like the friend pillow. I backed it with a brown that has a little blue dot.
I had to buy a new printer which has been the hold-up on the tags. Didn't really want HP again and after an easy set-up, two color cartridges wouldn't align and the intake rollers mark every sheet. Not happy. Bud liked the box though.
I found two new items last week and with wood everywhere and the rest of the crowded mess, I just stuck them here for now. I love red boxes and this is a ???? butter churn thingy-ma-do?
Tomorrow it's back to the doc that did the EVLA on my legs last year, which failed, and my legs are worse than before so they want another 2 hour ultrasound. If they think I'm going through another EVLA, they're nuts. We'll see what the test shows.
Thanks for all the entries for the pear! Oh. One of the blogs I wanted to mention is Eff's Needle. I came across her post on the Mary Beale sampler wreath and enjoyed seeing her other work. Translate button is at the top of her page. I really love the Beale wreath but I'm not sure if I would stitch it. Her Christmas wreath that I stitched last year became my favorite holiday piece.
Back to my mess! Thanks for visiting. If I forget to draw a name Friday, please email to let me know! My email button is in the right hand column.
Have a safe and enjoyable end of week!
