Hi folks. Is everyone happy it's cool? Well I'm happy you're happy but I'm a bigger crabass than usual. Get with it Spellcheck - crabass IS a word.
I told myself to never have a sale with variety. Too many items to keep track off and the probability of error is high. I did pretty darn good until this last sale and two orders were switched. Another was delivered according to tracking, but missing.
And I need you to check your Antrim sets (peacock) to see if the middle square's hole is drilled. I know I spotted one but can't find it now! Did we drill it? Did I misplace it? Did I mail it? Good thing I hadn't finished all the bargello requests and could use a few blanks to replace the errors.
Carole's mammo was good, no need to return for one year. She is relieved to say the least. Her surgeon is fine, nothing serious, and she will see him the end of next month. The doctor that performed her surgery was asked to leave this hospital (executive decision) so he is back in Pittsburgh and his patients here are heartbroken. Wonderful man. Between my appts and hers, we got the inside scoop. My mammo was moved to next Monday. Make sure you are all getting yours!
I took my Santa to work on while waiting at the clinics and because Carole was in a wheelchair (with electric brakes!) they kept moving us. Once I got everything organized and started to stitch, I had to pack it up and move again. He should have been completed by now and after these last items are mailed, I hope to make better progress.
The overdyed red that I chose has more of an orange tinge than the bluish reds. I like it on this fabric because the other reds were too cool for the cool linen. I changed the belt to black and need to pick a color for the sack. I don't use overdyed very often and therefore, a misstep. I should not have filled in on one side of the belt and then picked up the other side. If I would have moved along the entire row, the shading would have lined up. Noticeable to me now, but once the rest of the coat is filled, I'm hoping it will appear as if the light is hitting his overhanging belly. Good thing I realized the proper way to use this thread or the coat to the right of the center trim would have been completely different.
Mark is at the farmer's market searching for the last of the tomatoes, and also more jalapenos. We were going to make the jelly but decided on the cowboy candy. That will be the last of the canning.
Have a great day everyone. Check your boobies.
