Good day. I have two tips today for menodistracted minds.
First - when you are at the bank's drive thru, and the teller says "thank you, have a nice day", don't drive away. Wait until the tube spits out your money.
Second - if you remove your shirt so you don't get paint on it, but you're still wearing your neck warmer, don't let it trick you into thinking you are clothed. Stay in the house until you put the shirt back on.
I would like to do a few Santas and had to go into my Prairie Schooler library to get the charts. Most of the Santa charts are duplicates and I'm wondering why I can't find the extras. Then I remembered that I had a giveaway and sent out #62, 80, and 88. So did I have three originally? I don't know. I decided on book 88, but that may quickly change. On 28 count, the ornaments would be a little too large for my tree, but I don't have a large enough piece of 32 in a lighter tan for the entire book. I don't like to mix fabric in a series. So the cream piece will be dyed today since I have no idea what the linen colors will look like if I place an order. There is a lot of the thick weave 32 count that I dyed, but I can't stitch on it. It needs to go. Looking at some smaller pieces of 35/36, has me confused. They are still marked from the shop so the count is correct, but some look SO tiny and tight, not like the one I just worked on. Such a hassle for SWAS (stitchers without a shop).
Back to Santa. I found these Sew Fine Olde Santas, Collections 1 through 7. Anyone interested? One offer for all of them, not individually. I will never stitch these because of the color changes and details. The charts are large and very easy to read, but it's not my type of stitching any longer so if someone would like them, leave a comment. More than one, I'll draw a name this week. Free, except for international shipping which would be close to $8. I'm loading up the photos for you because I didn't find all of these old 1980's charts online for you to see.
Stitch counts 49x102 44x88 57x100 and 56x91
Stitch counts 60x87 and 51x87 65x105 and 63x97
Betty's name or the shop's stamp is on some of them but the insides are fine, never used. I think you can click on the photos for a larger view or check EBay since they usually have them.
Stitch count 48x91 and 39x91
Hope you have an enjoyable weekend, in this, the MIDDLE OF OCTOBER!!!
Can't believe how fast time is flying.
Thanks for visiting!!!
