Geezowhizzers. All I did was look through the drawers and packets for linen to send to Carol's friend and now my parlor looks like Walmart after Black Friday. Why do I not put anything back where it came from? I think once I reach my goal of actually finding what I am looking for, I get so excited that I skip away and don't look back. Well I went in there last night. Because time has passed since the incident, I can't remember where the items should be kept. A while back I worked hard to identify the count, possible color, and had each drawer organized as to such. Some of it is back in place, but most is a question mark. Under that pile of fabric was ..... Niky's Primitive Christmas. Once AGAIN, I am delighted with a new chart for the second time, since I completely forgot about it. Hence, the Santa pants. Should be a quick stitch and cute as heck.
I've decided to work on Sally when I am recuperating next week. No details, nothing serious (as long as I wake up), in fact, a choice not a necessity. I greatly enlarged the motifs again and hope I can wrap them up next week. The border later. But anxiety has been taking a toll and after the stress of The Year of Carole, I needed something fun and simple.
Looking through the PS charts I came across a few that I may have stitched but aren't sure. I know I didn't do the Nutcrackers because frankly, they scare me. I'm sure I can leave off the toothy backstitches and find a few designs that are more Santa like.
These were originally stitched on Aida and I want to redo them on the 24 count fabric called for, over one, which I gave away. When I sold the extra chart on Ebay I threw in the fabric. But do I really want to do over one? Nope. If I choose a few of these I'm sure another count would work just as well.
I know I did a few of these but could find another in this series too.
Did I do Kris Kringle? I could search the blog to find out but I am not keen on spending that much time on the computer. I could search for the storage box and go through them but that will be Walmart after sale day all over again.
I am definitely searching for a stitching journal today (online of course) and ordering one for Christmas and one for samplers. Years ago there were many available but I haven't seen much to my liking, if any recently. My SIL never stitched a thing without a record of linen count, color, threads, chart name, date, and most times a photo. It makes good sense doesn't it?
And I thought Nutcrackers were scary. I saw a video of Steven Tyler and realized.... that's my hair! Haven't had a cut in quite some time. I guess I'll have to wait a few weeks now. Who am I kidding? Doesn't matter the length, it's straight, wavy, frizzy, curly, soft, and steel wool. I gave up trying to control it many years ago.
Sorry if there are spelling errors. Spellcheck died, probably after the first word of Geezowhizzers. Hysterectobelly hasn't been included yet either and I have definitive proof of that word.
Enjoy your day.
Thanks for visiting.
