On Beach Time
Anyway, as you can tell I changed it a bit from the pattern. I was running out of the color for the chair - so, I improvised.
And this I finished this one last week -

This one is pretty true to the pattern. The sign took much longer than I guessed it would -- all solid stitching.
Remember I mentioned running into Natalie a month or so ago. In talking to her (ok, emailing) I mentioned I collected my orts. She wanted to know why we do this. I told her I saved mine so I can see my old projects in the floss. Also, some stitchers save the floss for the birds. Why do you save your orts?
This is my ort bottle. Sixteen years worth of threads rolled into little balls. Does anyone else roll their orts up like this?
On another front - both of my kids now have their 'big kid' jobs. Courtney just got hired for a community hospital as a Rad Tech and Logan is working for a climate firm recruiting voters. Thank goodness. In this job market I was beginning to worry.
Wish me luck this weekend - heading to another auction for more Fostoria. I just need a few glasses and I would like a large straight sided vase.
Off to gather my floss for the Nora Corbett sleigh. Hmm, I hope I have them all.
