I didn't discover that the chart had 2 "X's" for 2 different DMC colors.
Supposedly one bold and one not. Believe me there are only a couple of spots that I can tell the "X's" are bold. I have now have started referring the the picture on the chart. Which isn't all that great!
So a lot of my time I have spent this week doing this!
Froggin - ripping it out and restitching in the correct color. Almost completely done with that, when I also realized that somewhere you were supposed to do some Rice Stitch. Oh crap! Where?
Oh ya, one whole line I stitched in Algerian Eye Stitches was supposed to be in Rice Stitch. Having a mental debate with myself whether to rip it out and do it correctly or just leave it. Decisions, decisions! And we get mad with the men in our lives that refuse to read or ask for directions!
I bought another chart this week! I am weak! It sort of defeats the purpose of getting rid of my stash and then turning and buying another chart! But I just couldn't help myself!
I did also purchase my table. However in transporting it, I cracked a leg on it. Absolutely sick about it! But hubby says it can be fixed. Problem is if it takes him as long to fix the table as it took him to rewire the lamps, I won't be using the table anytime soon! Wish he'd just let me call someone!
I am in the hunt for a sampler that was only offered in a SAL. Someone I know stitched it and said I could
buy the chart but she has not gotten back to me. Maybe she is having second doubts? I contacted the designer through her blog and website and asked "if" and "when" it would be released for sale to the public. Haven't heard a response from designer either.
Well it's officially! My daughter made her final move to Charlottesville. She took her "devil dog" with her! I will be soon doing a deep clean of her bedroom, which is probably the cleanest I've seen it since she came home from school. Plus a deep clean of the shared bathroom.
Unfortunately our upstairs air conditioning unit is on its last legs. So we have been turning it off during the day so that it doesn't freeze it. But it gets really hot up there, really fast! Not best conditions to work up a sweat cleaning!
It's a hot one in Northern Va. So all you stitchers out there stay cool and hydrated. I'm returning to the basement! Till next week happy stitching!
