Many have asked for me to tell my thoughts about Sullivan's Floss. Well, I'm not sure if my difficulties were from the floss or the fabric. My hands were rough and dry while I stitched this project. The fabric caught on the roughness and just in general felt bad in my hands. Today as I framed this - the fabric felt much better. (Wearing gloves at work). I had problems with the floss twisting, looping back on itself, and tangling. Again this could have been my hands not the floss.
What I will say is this about the floss - I was also working Splendor silk as I finished Follow Me - the silk gave me no difficulties. But - then again - that's comparing apples and oranges. Buy a few skeins and see what you think. Sullivan's is cheaper than DMC and matches DMC's colors. It's worth a try. I will be using is again - maybe the second time it will be better.
I'm old! I feel old. I can't stay up all night anymore! This weekend was for a much younger person than me. Friday I got up at 3 am for work. I did take a nap but, it didn't matter much at midnight! That's 21 hours - much too many awake hours for me. Saturday I got up at 8:30 thanks to my sister calling. Ugh! Later Saturday night I ended up having Alivia spend the night. She's 11-12 weeks old. Still not sleeping through the night. Can we see where this is going? I slept on the couch and she slept in her carrier. But - she is the noisiest sleeper I have ever met. Moans, groans, throwing her little arms signaling a touchdown, smacking her lips, and sucking. Umm, sleep was not what I got. She was fine in the morning - I felt like a bus hit me! This is the reason I had my kids 15+ years ago.
I enjoyed my time with Alivia but it was really nice when her mommy came and picked her up. Oh, yes, being an aunt has it's perks! I can see why grandparents always smile when mom and dad arrive!
Were off to hurtle through another week - I hope this week finds you healthy and happy! Smiles - Denise
