But the end is clearly in sight. I have less than an inch of fill in to do on the hull of the ship. Plus random fish motifs. Hoping there will not be a week 13 post but an interim "finish" post.
But...even with less than an inch to complete, that's a lot of fill in.
Today is the first day in a long time that it hasn't been raining here in Virginia. Along with the rain, it's been chilly. So I have still had the heater going in the basement to take out the dampness. Is summer ever coming?
I made a trek to In Stitches last week. Spent about an hour an a half converting DMC colors to hand dyed cottons. A act of love for my sister! Although I can feel it in my legs from doing forced squats looking at threads from floor level to above my head.
My sister gave me the DMC #'s. Between GAST and CCW, this is what I came up with.
What is it about hand dyed threads, that makes me want roll around in them? Or just frame them like that? I guess that's how knitters feel about yarn or quilters feel about fabric.
Nothing more to post for this week. Hoping my next week, I'll have pulled threads for a new project. Until then, happy stitching!
