The Lizzie Kate SAL will be starting in less than 12 days now. I ordered all my supplies on Monday from 123Stitch. Their shipping is so fast that I expected the package in the mail yesterday. It didn't make it. I'm sure its now on hold at the post office. We are making a fast trip to California for a retirement party and to visit with some friends we haven't seen in a good 20 years. I picked a fabric that looks like the night time sky with come clouds. Its a navy blue. I decided to save my sanity I would grid this fabric out with one color thread and then stitch around each place where each chart will be placed in another color of thread. I also bought all of the speciality threads to stitch it out with. I was worrying about the threads not being colorfast and that problem was solved with the shoice of fabric I made. I was so disappointed that my package didn't make it. I've been bumed out all day.
Today it poured rain all day long. We have had so much rain this fall/winter that everyone is just going nuts. "We're sick of it"! Its been so long since my Chihuahua's have seen the actual sun that they have taken to worshiping the heater dish. One sits in front of it and stares at it and one of the others lays on the hardwood floor in front of it like she were at the beach sunbathing. Seven weeks ago while in California the weather was so nice that my sister and I were walking on the beach at 8:30 in the morning with short sleeve tee shirts on. Oh how I long for some sunshine and warmer weather.
Hope you're stitching to your hearts content!
