Earth Angel frustrations....

Image hosted by Photobucket.comThis photo is a bit washed out and looks a bit blurry on my laptop screen (sorry if it looks that way on yours too, the original photo looked fine), but here is how Earth Angel is looking now - after several hours of fighting with her (aka more frogging) - she has not been very kind to me at all. However, now that I have given her her face, I am hoping she will become a friendlier stitch. Yikes, all that frogging, but now everything lines up perfectly. I thought I knew what was causing me problems (those blasted shaded repeat lines, that are unlike any others I have seen before.... took me forever to figure them out)... but apparently my error occurred quite far from the shaded areas... I hope we will get along better now. My friends and regular blog readers know how much I like to get faces stitched as soon as I can on projects like this, and I am happy I got that done tonight. I hope that tomorrow I can get the face onto Miracle Butterfly, as it will be Passione Ricamo SAL day.... I wonder how Jenn, my SAL partner for Earth Angel, is progressing this week.

I received the Apple Sampler chart from an ebay seller today. I just love this one - the model is done up on 36 ct, and my friends all know I love 36 ct.

Not a good day for the Red Sox today.... Blue Jays 12, Red Sox 5... sloppy, sloppy!

We enjoyed watching Elektra (Mike's choice) and Sideways (my choice - but I am so proud of Mike for actually sitting and watching this one with me) tonight - boy, these two movies sure couldn't have been much different if they tried! And, I picked up Spanglish while I was at WalMart picking up a DVD for a friend anyhow :-)

Which Rock Chick Are You?
Found this in
Jenn's blog this morning - looked fun and gave it a try.... wish I knew more about who Tori Amos is, though - LOL! I listen more to Aerosmith, Velvet Revolver, Godsmack, etc....! (That dress she is wearing is really bugging me :-)

Stitched on today: Peacock Cypher (just for a little while as I watched the baseball game, not enough to scan in, just most of the other peacock in the top band...) and Earth Angel (really working hard to make friends with her tonight...)

Sorry you've had so many problems with Earth Angel, Carol. She's looking really good - hope the frogs have moved away now!

Hang in there with Earth Angel, she'll be worth it in the end :)
