CDC Update

Thank God for good friends and fellow stitchers. After the whole wrong-color-thread fiasco, my darlings on the Coven searched high and low for me for a dyelot that would match my original and on a leap of faith, Karen bought me a skein. It was from a different dyelot but it matches!! YIPPPEEEEEE!!

This is 3 pages down and if I'm really good, I'll have this done by the end for February. Just in time for a new Sampler SAL start. :D :D

HAPPY 2008!!!

12 days late, but the wish is still the same:

Wishing y'all
a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2008!


I've been trying to be good on the stitching end. Ever since the decision was made for a Sampler SAL (stitch-a-long) to start in March, and to pair that with my total dislike of leaving things unfinished, I have been working quite a bit on CDC. As of Thursday, I had 2 pages done, yippeeeee!!! GO, ME, GO!!

Surely things are coming up roses, right? The stitching mojo is back, zippe-dee-doo-dah, zippe-de-yay! That's 2 pages down, 4 to go and if I keep up the discipline, I'll have this done by the end of February at the latest, and in time to start Spanish Rouge, or Inquisition as it has been lovingly dubbed, in March.

When I first bought the floss, Caron Waterlilies Cocoa, they only had 2 skeins left at my LNS, but we liked the color too much and I thought surely when I needed more, it wouldn't be that tough to get it again.

Fast forward a few months... the 2 pages that I had finished took up 1 skein and with one skein to go, I placed an order with an online store for 2 more…
