Back to Bordeaux... hmmm... that sounds nice. It has got to be warmer there than it is here right now! But anyhow, I started Part 3 of Bordeaux Sampler tonight - now it will be a few days before I pick it up again... I am really starting to like how this is coming together, and thanks to my SAL mates... Anne and Leslie... I am feeling motivated again :-)
I dropped my needle tonight while working on Bordeaux, so I dug another out of a new pack... and you know, there really is a huge difference between a Piecemakers size 28 and a John James size 28. I had dropped the Piecemakers one, and the John James one felt like a stick of bamboo when I started using it! Luckily, as you can see on the sampler, I did find the Piecemakers one just as I was packing up (good, would hate for a cat to find it). I was surprised at the huge difference between the two - I knew there was a difference, but not that much...
Q. Have you had a happy dance yet this year? If so, tell us about it! (Or just point to the entry that talks about it.) If not, when do you predict it will be?
A. I am one of those people who doesn't like or use the term "happy dance," but... I have had four finishes so far this year... I finished my block on Dianne's Neighborhood Round Robin, and I have finished three gifts so far this year... all can be seen in my Yahoo album - you can get there via my sidebar, click on 2006 Finishes... that takes you to my Yahoo albums... then click on 2007 Cross Stitch there... sorry it is a bit of work, but until I decide whether or not to move my blog to another provider/host, I won't be changing much.
I am eager to get back into a stitching rotation now, but there are a few things that have to get clarified for me first... I am wondering if the Barnabee's Quest SAL starting next month is a one night a week SAL? I cannot remember what we decided... but for now, I am thinking this:
Monday: And A Forest Grew
Tuesday: Paradigm Lost
Wednesday: Bordeaux Sampler
Thursday: Dawn, Fairy Spirit of Grace
Friday: Houses of Hawk Run Hollow
Stitched on today: Mermaid and the Sea and Bordeaux Sampler
