I know. I haven't been regular. I've been quite irregular. I'd eat more fiber, but I don't think that would help me to post more often. I'll try to do better.
I've been stitching quite a lot lately.
First up - a week or so ago, I started the wildly popular design from Hands to Work called "This is the Day." You will find this pattern in the February 2009 issue of Just Cross Stitch. I could not find a large enough piece of LL Autumn Gold at my LNS, so I'm stitching mine on 32ct WDW Cappuccino - the color is pretty close. I'm stitching with the recommended fibers. As you can see, I haven't gotten far, I got distracted with a couple of other things.
Here's my second start - this is called "Special Delivery" from Blackbird Designs. I'm stitching with the recommended fibers on 32ct LL Strawflower. The color of the linen is so pretty. This is the sampler I will personalize to remember my mother's sister that died as a baby. You can read more about it on this post.
Finally, I'm working on an exchange - you'll see and hear more about this one in a few weeks after it is received.
Just Cross Stitch update -- some of you commented that you also received the bogus subscription renewal notices in the mail. The circulation manager at JCS contacted me and is looking into it. She also received the bogus notices for her own personal subscription, not only for JCS, but also for SANQ. Last I heard from her, she wasn't able to get anyone at National Magazine Services to return her call. If you receive a subscription renewal notice from them - destroy it!
That's all I have for you tonight. Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!
