Yesterday I had quite a bit of free time so I responded to the screams of Miss Mary Mack. I settled down to stitch and immediately noticed that my last row of stitches was going in the wrong direction! The stitches were /// and the rows above them were \\\. Rats. Frogging on 40 ct fabric is not my idea of a good time. Luckily it was just one row. With that fixed I got back to all of those endless rows of skirt. My little blob of blue-black stitches is now a bigger blob of blue-black stitches.
The petit point continues to give pretty decent coverage. It looks better without magnification. I'm finding that the 40 ct fabric is relatively easy to stitch on (with light and magnification) but I have difficulty counting individual threads. This hasn't been a huge problem with the skirt, but I forsee issues when I get to the hair. Yikes! I know some of you have a face and hair or shoes stitched already. Color me jealous! Oh well, at least I still have those "exciting" parts to look forward to. I will pick Miss Mary up again next week.
Today was a busy day. I delivered the quilt to Sue. Here is a picture.
I love the crazy quilt design. It gives a common look to stitched squares that are otherwise very different from each other. This is an awesome quilt and Monique did a fabulous job putting it together.
This evening I had fantastic time visiting with Pam and Leslie. They are in town for the weekend and invited me to crash their party. I first met Pam and Leslie in October during the Mom & Me Show Meet & Greet. At that time we chatted but didn't really introduce ourselves. (The truth is they were talking to Lori Markovic and I barged in!) Later on we figured out that we are Legacy girls. Tonight I realized we are true kindred spirits! I laughed, stitched, and laughed some more. What a great time! Thanks for inviting me to join the fun. I'd love to hang out with you two again!
I'm still stitching on Snapperville. I can not put my fingers on the Palomino floss I need for the cow. Wouldn't you know it! I need to scoot to Mom & Me to pick up a skein. I hope I can work that into the weekend!
