I figure that pretty much all of you are bored with Medieval Town Mandala by now... but since this is my stitching journal, well... this is what is going on in my stitching life right now :-) I worked on the little house at each end of the row tonight, and for the longest time they each looked like little pieces of toast with faces on them. But, there is a bunch of bavarian type backstitching to go on them, so I figure they won't look like toast for too much longer! Thanks, Judi, for eyeballing the chart and confirming for me that that is the symbol for PB02 in the roof of the "toast." It helps to have a buddy doublechecking the color key with Martina's designs!!
Q. Do you or have you stitched with over-dyed threads? (Weeks Dye Works, The Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Six Strand Sweets, etc.) If so, what is your opinion concerning them? If not, why not?
A. Yes, I use them all - and I really like them! Over-dyed threads have added a whole new dimension to my stitching. I love to try out the most popular designs, and find that almost all of them call for over-dyed threads....just love them!!
Well.... Celebrations time is here! My first class is Friday, and another on Saturday :-) I have already heard from Margaret, and need to get in touch with Jenn now to set up a meeting time/place or at least swap our cell phone numbers again (that worked out well for us last year!).
