Today, I received some nice comments on my blog from Jeannie, the lady I mentioned in my last post. She is truly a generous soul and I am very lucky to have met her. I hope we keep in touch.
I started this journey to Ohio with five projects to stitch. I have gone as far as I can on two of them, I had to stop them because I ran out of floss. The Blue Ribbon Design "Alphabet Tree" is stitched with "Indian Paint Brush" from Ozark Sampler. Well, I contacted them for more floss and was sadly informed that it was a speciality floss that was made in limited quantity and the well is dry. Not sure what to do about this one. Perhaps I will jsut scrap it and start over with a different color.
I am afraid I have run into the same problem with "Welcome" designed by Aury. Fortunately, I was able to order more floss from 123stitch today, unfortunately I won't be able to finish it until I get home. This is stitched on 16ct Fairy Blush from Enchanted Fabrics using The Gentle Art "Old Red Paint" floss. You will notice I changed the orientation so the word "Welcome" will be read top to bottom. There is a little frogging to be done in the future, once I ran out of thread I realized I made a few boo-boo's that while not major I feel compelled to fix. The picture did not come out so good, but it really looks pretty so please disregard my poor photograhy skills. My son wants me to buy more material like this because he just loves the color. One day he wants to learn how to stitch.
Tomorrow I will start a new project, a scissor pocket, for the Monthly Finishing Challenge. I will have lots of time to stitch the next two weeks while my son is in the hospital so should be no problem getting it done. I have enough floss to complete it and if I should happen to run out, which seems to be my luck these days, I am using DMC and there is a Michael's and Hobby Lobby in the local area.
Have a great day.
