Hi hi hi. Crabass here. If all the things going wrong would have happened in the summer, would I be as crabby? We'll never know, because it's Fall, going into November, starting Hallmark's 24/7 movies over and over and over (no GG and Frazier!), I need to force myself to stitch, do not want to be online, and everything seems to be changing. Except the crabass part. I don't know if too many nuisances at this time of the year are the culprit or if my menomoods are marching to a different tune. Whatever.
I completed the motifs on one side except for the vine encircling the house and will move to the other side. I greatly enlarged the motifs on the copier and colored the symbols which helped a lot. Really. I think struggling to discern the - v / ø was making it frustrating and the chart was small enough that coloring did not make a difference. The blown up motif, first at 150% and then that copy at another 150%, was so much better and without doing that I doubt I would have continued working on it. The house is still in tent stitch and needs to be crossed. Damn.
The good news - I have this handsome fellow on my mind for a sack (Kathy Barrick). That gives me hope. I see him with the birds and a few motifs, not all. Maybe I really do have a problem with motifs. Or maybe just a thing for sacks.
I also want to do Plum Street's Merry One. Haven't ordered anything yet because I went to one online shop to order them along with a few pieces of linen, and they didn't have Kathy's. In true crabass style, I slammed the laptop shut and walked away. I'll try again in a few days.
Pat received the October ornament and sent photos of it hanging on her door along with her outside decorations. Look at her fabulous old cart.
Well that did it. I tagged the photo "pat" and when I searched to import it, the photos of my friend Patti came with it. It will be a weepy Saturday. I think those days are good for the soul though.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend.
Thanks for visiting.
