Really? Here we go again! Are you overheated and dried up or waterlogged and chilly? Is there anyone in between?
This little fence sitter looks like she's guarding the yard...
but obviously not. Finally had some blooms on the geraniums and the sweet potato vines (which love water) were enormous. Hmph. Is that how you spell that sound you make while blowing air out like a snorting deer? Since I was feeding the 4 mama deer all afternoon in the backyard, this must have been the fawns sneaking around the front. The little buggers are running and playing all over the place. Must have been in the garage too because the corn is everywhere, and these flowers were at the garage door.
My stitching has been frustrating. I am a stitcher of letters. Flowers and motifs that require constant chart checking make me nuts. I am a sloppy stitcher, carry over threads too far, and go up down and sideways. Therefore, the corners of the crosses are pulled one way or another depending on the wrong turn my needle is taking. Adding another color is a crap shoot because it may split that stretched corner thread, go beneath it, over it, any way it can to get into that little hole. Do I care? No. So sad. I know I should but I don't. Such a relief that I don't like the fancy elegant samplers because they wouldn't be when I was done with them. Just because I like reproduction or primitive style that is missing stitches, misaligned, misspaced, misbalanced, mismatched, misspelled, doesn't mean my stitches should be misshaped. I made an effort this time to prevent that. Didn't last very long but still doesn't look too bad.
If I would have studied the chart before starting, I would have seen that the lightest color is in the large flower, not the one in the border flowers. All that time wasted on changing to the 758 and it's not even in the flower. Thought for sure it would be since it was with the red in the border.
A few other things - I still can't figure out messaging and answering on Facebook.
If you ever want to search a blog to find a particular finish, recipe, or tip, use the search box at the top left of any Blogger blog. It's word specific but still quicker for me to use.
And.... I didn't stitch that wallet. Our favorite wallet gal Ann did.
Remember the It Stays roll-on that glues your sling backs and keeps your straps in place? I bought a new bottle and loaned it to Carole since her split neck blouse kept drooping. Worked great but she can't remember where she put it. Don't you hate when that happens?
Hope your week is going well.
Thanks for visiting.
