Hiya. I'm putting a few smalls in my Magma for the hospital waiting room, and for when I feel like sitting outside on the swing for a while. I don't like to take a larger piece with all the necessities out there for just a half hour so this will work nicely. Never do I work on more than one project at a time, but when all I have to do is open a folder, the chart is already set up, my place marked, glasses and scissor snips at hand, pull out the fabric and I'm ready to go. So easy.
One of the projects I would like to put in there is this heart, but I have no idea where to find it. It's simple enough that I could probably stitch one similar without a chart, but it's always better to have instructions, even if I don't follow them. I know it's a Nash, but maybe it was from a club. Do you join all the yearly stitching clubs? I never have. I fall in love with one of the designs and the others are always very nice, but not something I want to stitch. Except for my first stitchings from Scarlet Letter, I don't like kits either. I'm fussy about - you guessed it! - color. Some linens I just do not care for in shade or hand.
I have a few other smalls for the folder and am still deciding on the main project, but I'm fairly sure it will be Sally Fiske from SL. Bigger than recent projects but I'll give it a shot. Maybe with smaller projects ongoing, I won't tire of it. Ann Wragg is always in the running as is Lora Turner, but I need something larger for a grouping. I may pull linen and thread this evening but I am so tired. Standing and painting doors on the kitchen counter all day isn't strenuous but I guess I'm feeling my age.
The decision on the cabinets is to stick with the same color, have Benjamin Moore match it and mix a quart of Aura eggshell finish latex. That will be the second and final coat and if there is no tackiness after curing, done! If not, I will coat with the poly and deal with the yellow cast or try another brand.
Doctor, haircut, and bill pay today. A little break from the brush.
Have a good one!
