Today is Day One, Nikki's fabric has arrived, so we started tonight. Here is my first night's progress on Legends of the Dragons. We are both stitching this on Dragon Myst lugana by The Blended Needle. Mine is on 32 ct. We are substituing the gold DMC's in the border with Storm Clouds Waterlilies. I saw this on a board once and loved it. When I track it back, I will be happy to leave credit for the lady who originally had this idea :-)
I stopped on my way home tonight and picked up the 3802 floss I needed for Knotgarden, as well as the 3808 and 3809 for Peacock Cypher. I was listening to the end of the Red Sox v. Yankees game on the radio in my Jeep on my way to the store, as I had listened to most of the game in my office earlier. It was a great, competitive game and the Yankees were leading 3-2 when I pulled up. Just then, Jason Varitek hit a home run at the top of the ninth, tying the game! I was dancing all over inside my Jeep! So, I quick ran in and got my floss.... and when I got back out the Red Sox were getting their third out and the Yankees were coming up to bat.... and then, bam, Derek Jeter immediately hits a home run off of Keith Foulke and the Yankees won, 4-3. Oh well, at least today's game was more competitive than Sunday's was :-) All will be just fine in Red Sox Nation. All Empires must fall someday, even "Evil Empires" - ROTFL
It is New Release Tuesday, and Mike dutifully went out and picked up Elektra and Sideways - will have to find time to fit those in while stitching this weekend!
Stitched on today: Green Old Gardens (OK, working that border now!!) and Legends of the Dragons
