I must be strong... I must be strong... I MUST be strong... I am itching to start a new project right now! I don't know which one, as I have several all kitted up and ready to go... I have that craving to start something new. But, I can't! I don't want to risk having another of my projects fall into UFO or extended-UFO status! Help!!!!! I MUST BE STRONG!!! LOL! (Becky's magic mumbo jumbo spells in front of her computer screen are helping me - thanks Becky!!).
And, I did decide to stay strong tonight. I put some time in on Legends of the Dragons earlier tonight, since I did not work on it last night. I did some of the knotwork underneath Magic tonight... then moved on to my usual Friday night project later on...
And, of course, that is Convent's Herbal Garden... :-) (When I went to edit this photo in, Blogger Photos was down, so I had to use Photobucket.... sorry you can't enlarge it).
I got in the Tranquility opalescent belfast from Silkweaver, which I had hoped to use for Mermaids of the Deep Blue... but now I doubt I will use it for that design. It is GREEN! It is gorgeous, but is is GREEN. The scan on Silkweaver's site shows it as turquoise blue green... very much on the blue side (and yes, it was the linen scan I referred to when I ordered it - see my October 8th blog entry to see a pic of the scan they show). I was surprised, because Silkweaver generally does very well with their scans being quite close to the true colors. I could return this, but it sure is pretty fabric... so I will put it in my stash, and I will also still do a floss toss on it when it comes time to make my decision. Who knows, it may look great with the fibers! (I doubt it, though - there is a lot of chartreuse metallic in the design... too close to the fabric color of Tranquility!). And, I received the lugana solo I had ordered around that same time... it is a subtle moss green 32 ct lugana. And, my Porcelain Nosegay chart & embellishments also came in today :-)
Mike wanted to go to Best Buy after dinner tonight, and I picked up Fast Times at Ridgemont High from their DVD sale bin... that's one of the old high school movies we still lacked :-)
