It's Tuesday, and that now seems to be Petal Fairy night :-) She is growing wings... hmmm... seems I have been working on wings all week so far :-) I am getting a bit worried about the 9300 #4 braid. I am a very conservative stitcher. I don't waste any threads. Now it does not appear that there is really all that much braid in her wings, but this is coming off of the spool so rapidly that... I might need to see if I can pick up another spool of it at Celebrations this weekend, just in case! Gulp! Heads up, if you plan to stitch her soon... I did see a comment on The Mirabilia Bulletin Board warning that this could happen! Too early to tell, but it is looking a little dicey now.... Katrina, were you able to get through with one spool?
I picked up two more pieces of the 28 ct natural Irish linen for the Liz Turner Diehl gardens at Joann's today... that is all they had left. I hope I can get some more when Ben Franklin's reopens for their Going out of Business Sale :-( Yep, I am still pretty upset about that!
I also received that gorgeous deep aqua solo from Silkweaver today - it is stunning! The ideas are flowing rapidly for what I want to do with this one :-) Here it is again: And, Carol at Silkweavers emailed me today that it is perfectly OK to swap out the Charizma evenweave I ordered in error for Karma evenweave, which is what I really need for Moon Fairy Spirit - I really appreciate them for putting up with me being such a pain the butt this week - I misordered twice, and they fixed it both times! :-) (Nope, I don't work for them!!)
Orioles 11, Red Sox 8.... I am really upset about this one. The Red Sox let go of an 8-3 lead in this one... and Keith Foulke blew another save for us.... this is getting old fast! Tomorrow's game might be rained out.... GOOD, as far as I am concerned - the Red Sox need to regroup and have a little chat with themselves right about now! But... I did pick up their 2005 Official Yearbook while I was out and about today... not in the mood to read it after this lousy (and long) game tonight.
On a brighter note, it is "New Release Tuesday," and DH got us Blade: Trinity and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events :-)
Stitched on today: Peacock Cypher at work, and Petal Fairy
