I'm extremely hard to shop for. All my family and friends know that, and I've even been told that numerous times in exasperation. ;) I can't help it... I'm picky about what I like, and I don't like having friends and family spend their hard earned money for something that will just sit in a closet.
When Heidi asked me what I wanted for my birthday this year, I told her I don't know but I'll tell her when I thought about it, which turned her into a nagging wife. I shouldn't be surprise, cos that's what I did to her when she wouldn't tell me what she wanted, and SHE shouldn't be surprised, cos she's doing the same to me!!! LOL!!
A week into the nagging, I knew!!!! She is a most amazing artist and I wanted an original from her! No doubts about it. :D I told her I loved animals and my favorite are the lion and the giraffe. This came in the mail yesterday. Isn't he glorious? I'm so in love!!!!! :D
The Boo Boo:
There has been lots of interest in the Ancient fabric I've received from Picture This Plus, and with reason too, it's just gorgeous! I've only ever ordered belfast linen from PTP to date, and I discovered last night, to my horror, that I had mistakenly asked for 32ct lugana this time.
A lot of you have mentioned wanting to make a purchase of Ancient during PTP's July sale... so I wanted to make sure you had this information. For the linen color of Ancient, check out Sabrina. :)
I'm so sorry for the misinformation. That's totally 'duh' of me. I'm just going to blame it on old age and being overworked instead of ditziness. HAHAHA!!!
The 'boo boo' discovery was as a result of Fern's start.
*cue gasp for the ones of you that know I loathe starting*LOL!!! It took me 1.5 hours of pulling floss, cutting fabbie, trying to decide which half of Ancient would look better with her, ironing, scrolling, adjusting before finally being able to put my first stitch in. For those of you who like start, do you love this part of the process?
*cue cheer for the ones that have been trying to talk me into it*
Here she is after about a couple of hours....
