Friends - sorry for my lack of blogging lately! It's Spring - and we've had weddings, first communions, confirmations, etc. Last night, my daughter and I visited the school she will be attending next year - they had a picnic for incoming new students. It's just been one thing after another!
I am not going to review April goals - I don't think I accomplished too much! I am also not going to set specific goals for May. My general goal is going to be to finish some projects that are "oh, so close" to being done!
Here's what I've been working on lately:
On Sunday, I re-started the DT Game Board Sampler. I decided to stitch it on 36 ct (one strand of floss over two. I really like it! Here's a picture with the first version on 25ct and the new start on 36 ct.
Sorry for the wrinkles - I work in hand and I didn't have time to press before I took this picture. Now, is anyone interested in my partially stitched version on 25ct? It's maybe finished about a fourth of the way -- I'd be happy to pass this on to anyone who would like to finish it for themselves...
The other project I'm working on is Quilt Time Sampler by LHN. I stitched the two quilts in the middle and the bottom section this week. I still have the top section to finish.
And now a question for anyone who might be able to help me - I'm trying to finish my Apricot (Mint) Elegance needlecase - it's "oh so close!" I need to make cording for the scissors fob and for the case. I used Needle Necessities pearl cotton to stitch this and I would like to use the same NN pearl cotton for the cording - the problem is that the pearl cotton is pre-cut into one yard lengths. When I make cording, I twist the entire length of the thread and then fold it in half - so in other words, I end up with an 18 inch piece of cording and it is not long enough. Is there a trick on how to do this and end up with a longer piece of cording?
Thanks - have a nice day!
