What do you see… April 4, 2011Posted by totallythreadup in Uncategorized.
I had forgotten about this little HD if you can call it that. At the start if the year I decided I was going to stitch some smaller designs as I have had some large projects on the go since I’d started stitching again. Before I discovered my PS snowy night ornaments I bought a few designs from Flossbox Flossbox– they weren’t very expensive and they were available by download so I chose about half a dozen of them. There are a lot if freebies available and worth a browse. I was chatting to Sandra Sandra and telling her about my new projects and asked her to take a look at the first chart I was going to stitch – a reindeer on a skateboard. She sounded rather puzzled when she replied – it looks like a dragon to me? No I said – it’s a reindeer and his scarf is blowing in the wind and he’s on skateboard!
Ever felt a right wally?!?!?!?! I have a giggle every time I look at it lol
I only managed a few hours stitching on Masquerade (week 6) last night and as I was stitching I noticed I was well into the second skein of the onyx thread. I had bought the chart and fabric as a kit and two skeins should been sufficient to complete the project. Panic started to kick in as I knew I was definitely going to run out of thread so I checked the chart and realised the fabric used was 40 count and I am stitching on 28 count. I’ve ordered another two skeins and just hope I have sufficient of the other colours to do my Happy Dance. Here is last night’s progress.
No progress to show on my new start as I still haven’t managed to get any other stitching done…..maybe tomorrow. 🙂
PS I have now worked out how to put links in my post using my IPad app and if I have done this correctly there should be one for Sandra and one for The Flossbox.
