Greetings folks. Have I started another project? Nope. Why? Slumpola. The longer I wait, the worse it gets, but I had another issue. I was using my heat gun with the metal extension, trying to correct the warped box lids. This time, I was in a different room and forgot where the cord was, walked into it, and grabbed the metal part of the gun as it was falling. The burn was really not as bad as I expected, the scream was no higher than my usual, and the healing was pretty quick. It's fine and I can certainly start another sampler this weekend. But which? A little freebie? I have many small marking sampler charts and yet a few very large projects are calling my name but it doesn't sound like marly. Might be a clue that they're calling someone else.
When I was posting my seven days of samplers on Facebook, I also showed my smalls and fell in love with them all over again. Especially this tiny Scottish Initial Sampler from Chessie & Me. I've found that years ago, over one was not a deterrent as you can see in the first row.
I want to thank you for the uplifting comments about my blogging anniversary. Your kind words and friendship are cherished. For my anniversary giveaway, ten bucks for each year, a $50 gift certificate. I will probably give you a few shop options as I did before because places like Nordic Needle offer storage chests, quilting, sewing, just about everything (not everyone prefers cross stitch). But maybe I will choose one shop and stick to it like people that have focused fogless brains do. I will think long and hard and post the official giveaway notice either tomorrow or Sunday. Do not post about it to others - this is for my readers and followers.
Until then, eat cake, stay safe, be well.
