Greetings from Pennsylvania's official day of all forecasts. Started with snow, then ice, then icy snow, then freezing rain, then rain, a little more snow, possibly a storm later, and a high wind warning - everything except sunshine! I can't believe how the wind is howling and whipping the ice into the windows. Needless to say, I'm not venturing out. So instead of making decisions and lining up material lists to complete the mess in the house, I'm browsing charts. I hate this. Really. The last several choices kind of fell into my lap with timing and I accepted gladly. This time, just chart after chart of choices. They are all from this and this post.
I also started Eliza Pumroy a while back and had "issues" with her. The colors are very bright and I dyed the floss with a tiny touch of Rit's pearl gray. Where are they? Maybe this is why I can only stitch one project at a time, fearing I would never locate the other starts. Well, in a pile of linen I don't care for, and loads of unfiled charts, I came across Eliza again. That's an indicator that she should be next and to stop wasting time browsing. I'll think about it. Little Dorothy Allen from R&R is calling to me and a very quick stitch. Lori's free chart is too.
I really like the display of a long sampler with the fringed bottom like my Mary Oldfield and Eliza is even bigger.
I'll probably do one of the smalls and then try to reunite with Eliza.
When searching for other photos of the R&R charts, Google led me to their blog. Why didn't I find this before?
Now the tags. Thank you for the Clare requests, I'll make more today and search for mailers on EBay which will give the varnish a few days to dry completely. I will email you with payment options and you can let me know then if you would like any of these included. I still haven't decided if Etsy is needed or using my other blog or page only for sales would work. I doubt I will sell that many so probably not necessary.
Thanks for the kind words about my sister. Yes, it's getting unnerving. She will have an aortic valve replacement within a few years and now her coronary calcium levels are over 900. Yep. Over 900. Strange (as usual), she was told the levels were fine after the first part of the test and they proceeded to administer the Lopressor to continue with the scan, because with the heart beating too fast results would not be clear. She waited hours there with additional meds and the rate never calmed down so they sent her home. The phone call this morning was for the cardiac MRI scheduling and she was told that her levels were over 900 and they could not have proceeded with the first scan because of that. Well then why was she made to sit and wait and loaded with meds if they couldn't scan? Who has the wrong results? The doc administering the scan that claims the numbers were fine, or the doctor's office claiming they are alarmingly high? She has an appointment today but her house sets on a steep hill with a curved driveway conducive to luge sledding in this type of weather. I think she'll reschedule.
I'm sorry I have not been keeping up with blogs and emails. So much on my mind lately and my menomoods have changed into anxiety! Never felt this before but I think that's what is happening.
Thanks for visiting - hope your weather is good, your needle sharp, and your chocolate dark.
