Paradigm Lost and Great New FOTM Membership

It's Tuesday - wish I didn't have to work so late and had to squeeze in time to stitch. Still working away on that monster motif in the upper right, but almost there now.
I just received my first installment from the new FOTM offered by Enchanted Fabrics. With the closest LNS to me closing now, it made sense to find another way to get a good supply of these pretty fabrics. I believe I found the solution. Lori sent me a fat quarter of one of her new releases, Magic's Kiss. It is belfast linen from her Flair collection. Super pretty! Only $23 for the first month, and then only $20 each month after that - can you beat that??

OK... so now that we are back on Standard Time here in the US, I am trying to figure out what is happening with the evening commute. Since Standard Time started up and we are now driving home in the darkness for the evening commute, it is just amazing how many accidents I am encountering on my way home - something I rarely ever saw driving home in daylight hours during the spring and summer. Not sure why I have never noticed this before, but it sure is obvious this year. Do people lose their ability to drive in the darkness during the evening commute?

New DVD Release Tuesday: Cars and Little Man (not my choice!).

Stitched on today: Paradigm Lost

You be careful on that evening commute, Carol! Here, it's the rainy weather that brings on a sharp spike in auto accidents. Which is weird, because it rains a lot and you'd sort of expect that the drivers would be expert in that weather.

PL looks great. It really is a gorgeous project.

Keep up the good work Carol on PL. You'll have that motif done in no time.

I love your Magic's Kiss fabric it's so pretty. For a second I'd hoped it was one you had for sale. *grin*

That really is a pretty piece of fabric! I thought it was supposed to be the sleep deprived spring time change drivers that caused accidents, but all I hear on the news is that the sun is now in peoples eyes during the big DC commute hours causing accidents.

Very pretty fabric, Carol! Just a few more stitches and the monster will be slain, yay!

Vonna said...

Love the fabric! Thanks for the link...I'm going to go look there right now!

Your PL is looking fabulous and you're right that is a monster motif!! :D

The commute here gets worse by nearly 1/2 hour when the time changes--more clogs, more accidents--such a waste of good stitching time! Paradigm Lost is looking great! Yikes on losing your LNS--at least will they have an "everything must go" sale?

Karoline said...

Both Paradigm Lost and Emblem of Love are looking gorgeous Carol, great progress

Carto said...

I've looked at your Paradigm and it's wonderful. A have a friend and she has stitched The Token, Bois du Duc, is working on Moulon Rouge and has finished Paradigm. I've asked her which of those designs she likes the best and Paradigm wins by a mile. It's gorgeous even with the use of white linen and the blue DMC floss. I so enjoy looking at your daily updates of your work. It's imspiring!!
