I tackled that greek cross filling stitch tonight on 17th Century Irish Garden. I don't think I have ever said this before, as I love specialty stitches, but I did not like doing this one. The diagram in the chart gives almost no help.... but I am done with it.... took me forever... :-)
My husband has been busily working on a cross stitch stash and project database. I am really looking forward to this. He is a programmer by profession and is putting a lot of effort and energy into this. The goal is to have the database manage your stash, as well as allow you to enter projects, seek out what you already have in your stash, and give you a shopping list for what you need. I figure he may need some beta testers for this when it gets to that point... hopefully one or two of you might be interested?
I can't believe my luck here! I have about given up on Silkweaver Solos on Tuesdays... if I like it, it is already sold... But tonight I casually looked at them, saw a lovely blue that is over the standard fat quarter... is 32 ct... perfect for Lilly of the Woods... and it was still available! Imagine!! It is sold now :-)
I was totally remiss last night in mentioning some things - I was just too anxious to get back to working on the angel's hair! Well, I received the Tuttie Fruitie Belfast and the Karma 32 ct evenweave from Silkweaver yesterday... as well as some lovely Honeysuckle White Silk 'n Colors from Karen V. which completes a fiber swap we had going (thank you so much Karen!!).... and I was high bidder for the embellishment pack for One Good Urn (I paid only $2.50 for it!) and Sun Sampler chart - how did I forget to write about all of that good stuff??? Just loving stitching on that angel, I am sure :-) ....And tonight I was high bidder for Village :-)
Red Sox 3, Athletics 2 - the Athletics really had the upper hand in this tight game tonight... until Kevin Millar hit a huge two run walk off home run! Woo Hoo!
Got a couple of new comedies today that I hope I shall enjoy stitching to soon: In Good Company and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou :-)
Stitched on today: Peacock Cypher (yep, I finished Section 2, so I will bring it home and scan it now) and 17th Century Irish Garden
