I am so close to finishing Victoria’s Quaker now that I think I will make the best use of my three day weekend and work on it all day tomorrow with a chance of a happy dance…I hope Carol and Kaz don’t mind that it’s not Tuesday tomorrow (Carol is done, Kaz is very close too!) I am enjoying this project so much – it has been a really relaxing stitch.
This is Carriage House Samplings – A Quaker Study, my ‘train’ piece which is also a very relaxing stitch. I tend to agree with Carol – there is just something about the Quaker pieces which is rhythmic and soothing. I am enjoying this one also. I am also very happy with my fabric and thread choices on this one.
I’ve not stitched much on Paradigm Lost this week – only a very short session, but perhaps tomorrow night I will stitch a little. Not much progress to show after last week – but there was a bit of frogging!
Thanks everyone so much for your comments on my ‘bad feeling’. I rang the framer again on Friday morning and he didn’t respond to me until late Friday afternoon – it wasn’t completed yet and he promises me Tuesday. He thanked me for the extra time. I”m still feeling very uneasy. I have 6 other pieces to frame and I think I will just try and work in a long round trip to my former framer (that sounds funny doesn’t it) with whom I feel VERY comfortable. She understands me and the feelings of attachment I get to my pieces.
As for the stash diet, everyone who knows me is certain that I wont be able to do it – but I am a determined little git and I have wanted new sofas for a year now and we’ve been looking and found them – I don’t want them to get away As I’ve mentioned I will be listing a heap of stuff for sale soon and perhaps we can work something out to make sure I don’t run out of stash….again anyone who knows me understands that the likelihood of me running out of stash is about the same as me winning a Grammy – NOT LIKELY!!!
Oh and did I mention I just ordered a new car also A brand new Ford Territory!
And exciting Australian Open Tennis…the Frenchman (Tsonga) is doing really well….I am barracking loudly for him
