*** Picture Heavy Post ***
Things are nearing the end for Dandy Dreams. It's going to be sad to see the project completed. Mary Jane told me she was glad I was waiting on her to finish. I wanted to watch us work towards the same goal at our own pace. I've enjoyed throwing some smalls in with Dandy. Makes Dandy take a little longer. Having seen others work on this project - it seems we all want it to linger. There must be something that strikes a nerve with us all.
Here's Miss Mary Jane's Dandy as of last night ~ (she ironed the wrinkles out but complained it was dark and rainy - she thinks her pic is not the greatest - I see no problem)
I took my picture in the daylight sitting on my stitching chair - now which picture was taken in the dark? lol
Made it to Cleveland to my CNS (closest needle store) there was a giggle in the peanut gallery that I called a Cleveland store my LNS. ;0)
I got some stash but no floss. Lee sent me a skein of silk floss from Hand-dyedFibers.com. I wanted to see their selection and start a new collection. This floss is awesome in every way!
So, I got some linen ~
A few patterns ~
And called it good. The bottom patten is called Tiny Garden Scissor Fob - I believe it is by Shepard's Bush. I bought it to make and RAK. But now I'm thinking there will be two made. This is too cute not to make one for myself.
When I got home there was a package awaiting me. MJ sent me a birthday gift. Oh my goodness - oh my goodness - oh my goodness she knows me too well!!!
Look B-I-R-D-S - Black birds, blue birds, and red birds!!! And to think I was going to go stitch on something else - hahaha - this is getting kitted tonight!
In case you missed it I'm 43 tomorrow. I'm officially middle aged. As long as 43 doesn't hurt worse than 42 - I'm good.
Check out that poll in the sidebar - you guys want more pillows! Well, the ones who have voted do. Your wish is my command.
And I'll be drawing names tomorrow afternoon for the trims and spools. Who will be the lucky winner? You? Maybe, if you've left a comment on that post.
I think I'm going to go kit a pattern up and stitch the night away. Hope your weekend is just how you would like it to be!
