Seems like I haven’t updated in ages. Well, I have a good excuse, work has been very busy and I have not been stitching much. I do not have an update on Fairy Grandmother because I haven’t put a single stitch in her since I updated last week. I have been stitching on a needleroll for an exchange so I can’t share pictures yet. It is almost done so I will probably send it off sometime next week. The mailing date isn’t until May 15th but I like being done with it sooner. I also have a Redwork exchange coming up with the same mailout date so it is good to get one thing done in time :o)
I can share one picture though. I got my order from Stitches’n Things this week.
I got some perle cotton that I need for a project and some Kreinik Silk Mori. And French Country Cat, Roosted and Love from JBW designs.
I have one more order coming in soon with some 36ct fabric for Spot of Winter, Summer, Spring and Autumn by The Drawn Thread, and then I am thinking about going on the wagon for a while. I have so much stash. Only exception would be buying floss if I run out of a color. Not very likely since I am well stocked in DMC, at least for now :o) But even if I am on the wagon it doesn’t mean that you can’t send me stuff. LOL!
Oh, I just got some materials to make another biscornu for my friend Linda in Texas. She also sent me lots of extra fabric and a whole bunch of floss for my friend Rósa who was running out on lots of DMC colors.
Today’s SBQ was suggested Cindy and is:
Do you have a system for organizing freebie charts in your stash? If
so, what is it? Do you print out copies of all of the freebies that
you find on the web (that you think you might actually stitch) or do
you maintain electronic copies of them until you are ready to stitch them?
I have loads printed out and in folders categorized by theme. I also have a HUGE folder on my computer with free charts from the web. I save everything in it that calls out to me and then I go through it every once in a while and throw out the onese that I know I will never stitch. I have one folder of the onese that I really really want to do and the others I break up into other folders by designer/project/theme.
