Sleep Stitching and Frogging

I really must have been "sleep stitching" yesterday when I started Part 6 of Medieval Town Mandala. But, fortunately, Judi was keeping an eye out for me today! Thank you Judi - you saved me from a whole lot more frogging!! Judi noticed that I had used the wrong color on the awning of this building, and she pointed me to the EZ Board for more info... while there I discovered that the brick color I was using was also wrong. The symbols are very similar, but I did as I always do - I triple checked before committing to each floss color. I guess I was just sound asleep! Tonight I had to frog both colors out... which was a bit of a brutal frogging as the black was secured under the brick color in several spots. Grrrr.... But, all caught up now - I just hope I am using the proper colors now! (Bad photo again!??!! I thought I did better tonight, but seeing it in the blog now, oh yuck!)
I received my FOTM from Silkweaver today - a little late again... Anyhow... wow, I love, love, love this Oceantide Belfast! It was well worth the wait - isn't it stunning??!!

OK, I signed up today for the American Quaker SAL. I couldn't resist... I even ordered the silks for it from Vikki Clayton today - I selecteds the colorful option (the top row). I probably won't be able to keep up with this SAL, but I will be happy to have the charts and silks, and will take it at my own pace. Martina Dey's quaker samplers are just too, too pretty!

Mike went to the funeral today. It was very sad.

Poor you. All the frogging. I have been doing a bit of that as well, but I'm on the go again. I love the look of the mandala, though! And the American Quaker SAL? What beast is this?

Rachael said...

Sorry the frog has been visiting. Hopefully it has left your house now. What are you gouing to use the stunning Oceanside Belfast for?

Carol said...

The photo's not so bad, Carol. Glad you found your mistakes before you got too much farther into stitching. I signed up yesterday for the Medieval Town Mandala online class. I'm waiting for approval. Can't wait to get my fibers and beads. Have no idea what fabbie I'll stitch MTM on. The Oceantide fabbie is beautiful! I'm thinking of getting this in Lugana for my 'Mermaids of the Deep Blue'.

That Silkweaver is absolutely yummy. I'm jealous. :)
