It's been a kind of "carpy" several days...starting with Monday. Mondays are always carpy just on general principal. Nothing good happens on Mondays. Yesterday, I got rear-ended in town...surprisingly very little damage to my car considering the jolt, but I do have a nice case of whiplash. Now, today, I realize that I have probably lost my DH's paycheck from last Friday. I've turned the house upside down (almost) and can't find it. I should have deposited it right when I got it. Oh, well. It might still be in his truck and that he just never gave it to me. It really stinks getting old (is 46 old?). I can't remember anything now-a-days.
Anyhoo, on to stitching updates. I finished Quaker Alphabet by La-D-Da. I used the suggested fabric (35 ct Straw by WDW), but changed out the threads. The blues just didn't do it for me. I went with WDW Bark for the alphabet portion and WDW Kudzu for the motifs. I love greens. I wanted to use GAST Dried Thyme, but I didn't have enough. I thought I had seen these two colors put together for this project on someone else's blog, but I do not remember where (again, I'm getting old!!). I think it turned out very nice!
On the WIP front, here's a snap of the baby sampler I'm making for my soon-to-be born first grandchild, a sweet little girl who will be named Hayden. I chose La-D-Da's Gabrielle Rose and I'm using the suggested fabric (36 ct Light Examplar" by Lakeside Linen) and the suggested DMC threads.
BTW, I would love to take better photos and have them look better in my blog ~ any ideas? Is there a program you use to crop, etc.?
Hoping today will be a little bit brighter???? Please????
