Well, the full size version of this photo is gorgeous - Mike did a great job with it - except he lightened the fabric color while playing with the image - the color is accurate in yesterday's photo - but when I have to shrink it down to fit the blog entry... you still can't see all of the beading :-) I have to figure out how to set it up so that when you click on the image it takes you to the large image... anyone have any clues for me? Thanks! (Although I think the answer is in the HTML I use in my sidebar... just too tired to figure it out tonight, I guess....)
Well, well.... today is August 4th and I have already decided to change one of my August stitching goals. I had originally planned to start Resting Butterfly in Petal Fairy's rotation spot... but this morning I decided that I really wanted to get back to stitching Convent's Herbal Garden, which I had started last year and is actually on my original 2005 Stitching Goals list anyhow... so I will be picking that up tonight - and I am really excited about it! I will put Resting Butterfly into the rotation at some point.... but with Miracle Butterfly approaching a happy dance soon, I think that will be the perfect slot for Celtic Winter SAL...
And, here is tonight's progress on the gorgeous Convent's Herbal Garden. I am really pleased that I put this back in my rotation. I can't believe I actually let this stunning and very pricey kit sit around for so long.... gonna get it done now :-)
I was high bidder for this pretty fat quarter of belfast by The Blended Needle... it is called Dragon's Dream. Got a good deal, think it is so pretty! Also, got the bad news today that, as I had feared, Dyeing4U is going out of business... they are having a liquidation sale on supplies, and I got a fat quarter of opalescent white belfast super cheap.... I think it will be just perfect for Spring Ride!
If there were any blooms in the garden today that I have not yet photographed, they managed to slip under my radar - LOL!
Red Sox 11, Royals 9 - I heard it was a wild game! The Sox scored 8 runs in one inning, all on one hit.... which just happened to be Jason Varitek's first ever major league grand slam! I am so psyched for him! We have been waiting for this. It was hard to imagine a player of his caliber, and who has no real problem with hitting home runs, not having yet had a grand slam - well, can't say that anymore :-)
