My scanner is not set up yet on my computer since moving it downstairs, so I had to take a digital picture tonight... Anyhow, here is a bit more of Part 1 of Mystery IX... and still quite a ways left to go!! Stitching with the Silken Perle #5 by Thread Gatherer on belfast linen was.... interesting LOL! I am hoping that if I am diligent this weekend, I can finish up Part 1. But I don't know if I am overestimating my ability to finish this by then.
It was a pretty good stash day today. I got The World of Cross Stitching, Isue 105 (December 2005), because I love the Passione Ricamo Christmas Angel... I have the chart from when it was a freebie, but I really wanted to support Laura's venture into placing it in the magazine as well :-) And, I got in the custom cut of Silkweaver Purely Primitive 40 ct linen for when the Long Dog Sampler SAL starts up. I will be stitching Paradigm Lost using Victoria Clayton's Konini silk. And, I got in the new Herrschner's Needlework Shoppe catalog too - although I never order anything from them because their shipping is very high, it is always fun to flip through the pages LOL!
It was also a great DVD day today... I received my Lost Season One DVD set from ebay (I am one of those very few people who doesn't watch Lost, but I hear great things and now plan to try to catch up!!). And the dump bin today had I.Q., Hot Shots and The Beverly Hillbillies - silly stuff I can easily stitch to!
Stitched on today: Mystery IX and Garden Spot Sampler (just for a few minutes tonight - oh, and for just a few last night too - to finish up one motif (the pewter birds near the left margin that surround the brown rust flowers... that's all)
