I got an email from Sue today letting me know that she planned to work on Women of the Mayflower today, and I thought that was great because I had been thinking of doing the same. I think I got a decent amount done, despite some pretty serious ADD symptoms... very distracted, doing other things, etc. Somehow I kept managing to get back to it. I took an outdoor photo of it since my scanner is still not connected to my desktop - Mike is picking up a new hard drive now to be a backup on my desktop... he is pretty excellent with fixing computers, and I feel blessed about that! In the meantime, my trusty laptop is getting the job done with the digital camera :-)
So, what is it with so many peacocks on samplers?? I can't say I hate them, but they don't appeal to me enough to have them on so many samplers... I understand it is a bit of a traditional sampler motif and the like, but I can't figure out how to explain so many peacocks on my walls to non-stitchers - LOL! See, WOTM even has a huge one on the Mayflower!!
Barbara is safe and sound (and happy!!) in Maine, and I loved speaking with her on the phone today - I am so looking forward to meeting up with her and Patti at ABC Stitch Therapy next Saturday!!
I am thrilled that Becky has posted and that she sounds well :-)
I am also really happy that Nan Caldera (Just Nan) is going to be a guest in Silver Needle's booth at CATS in Hershey, PA! Very cool!
Here is the list of Weeks Dye Works colors that are now retired (by email request from someone...gosh, forgot who, sorry!) ... get them while you can, right?? If you plan to stitch Dragon Dreams Kingdom Sampler, go to your LNS soon - Blackberry is needed for the alphabet, roof of the castle and woman's robe! Lost forever are: Cape Cod, Wisteria, White Chocolate, Latte, Butterscotch, Julian, Blue Fescue, Mimosa, Flamingo, Mexicali, Hydrangea,
Salt Glaze, Blackberry, Robin's Egg, Eucalyptus, Granny Smith, Beehive,
