First off: Happy Easter to everyone. It will be a very quiet day here ... my eldest, Ange, is working as the emergency technician at the vetenarian clinic, my oldest son, Sean, lives with his family on the West Coast ... leaving my youngest son, Dan, my husband and myself. My husband opted for a restaurant dinner since both of us have put in rather hectic weeks at work. While I balked at the idea at first, I am quite grateful now. I am lector at the 9:30 Mass, which would have meant I would have had to do all the cleaning and dinner prep yesterday.
Over the past week:
And finished Homespun Elegance's Witches Stitch, Too. See yesterday's post for photo.
And stitched a PS promotional card piece for an upcoming Hooled on Exchanging deal, so no photo.
And I took a sneak peak at my next Crazy January Challenge piece, only to discover that I still don'y have all the floss. I know I ordered the Needlepoint Silks but they must be on back order still, just like the Crescent Colors I had ordered for Witches Stitch, Too! I was able to substitute some GAST for the Crescent Colors in that piece but I am reluctant to make substitutions for the Barrick's Sampler The Gilded Cage. I want this lovely little piece to have all the richness of color and texture of the model. So I guess it is back on the phone on Monday to check on the status of the orders. I have all the colors needed to work the border and can work on that till the rest of the silk arrives. It is irritating, though, that this is happening once again with a CJC piece.
