I decided to stick with stitching the Mystery Sampler (aka 18th Century Band Sampler) on Sundays, and I am glad I worked on it tonight. Now that I look at it, it is starting to take some form. I like the band I am working on now - a nice easy rhythm that is moving along so nicely.
Thanks for the feedback about my blog. It was good, I guess, to put that feeler out, and I am glad that so many do like the daily updates. I don't want anyone to misunderstand, though, that I was not criticizing any bloggers who feel WIP photos are boring. I did feel badly when I had read that statement, but do strongly feel it is great for different people to have different styles. That said, thank you, everyone, for your nice words!
As for the DMC, I have been keenly aware for a while now that it is so pricey anywhere else, and I sure am grateful that I do live where it is cheap. I was just wondering if anyone had run into those great 8/$1.00 or 10/$1.00 sales that used to be so frequent here. I pay either 24 cents at Joann's or 29 cents at AC Moore... haven't shopped for floss at Michael's in the longest.... so, the general feeling seems to be that the best we can find is more like 5/$1.00 now. I wonder if importing the DMC has gotten to be pricier for the stores now.... ? I am glad I did stock up a lot during those big sales, but with the amount of stitching that I do, I often realize I have to run out just for a skein of something :-)
Happy Easter - hope everyone who celebrates had a good one! Mine was so nice - I worked out a little longer and a little harder than usual, and feel good as result :-)
