Another update on the lovely Ann. I could have posted last night and for some reason, just got side-tracked.
Was so happy to have the second 1/3rd finished, so that I could move my scroll rods up. Always makes me feel like I'm making huge progress, if I get to move the scroll rods.
Soon, I will be working on the whole farm, sheep scene at the bottom of the chart. The thing that really drew me to this chart, when I saw it displayed at the Woodlawn Embroidery Show, many years ago.
I did a bit of going back on my blog, and discovered I only purchased Ann in 2014. As a final reprint from Threads through Times before she closed her door to cross stitch charts. So....very lucky considering this chart has been around since 1990.
Today, I had to ask for a refund from European Reproductions, for a kit, my husband ordered for me for Christmas. Sadly, it has never arrived. So....asked Paypal for a refund, and will now have to reorder, from Sabine, and hope I have better luck on the second order.
Speaking of ordering, over Christmas, I ordered what I thought to be 2 of those bathroom scrubber things they show on TV. One for the rest of the bathrooms, and one for exclusive use by my mother for her bathroom. I haven't a clue, how it happened, or exactly what I did wrong, but somehow I ended up with FIVE of these things. After talking to customer service, they said, I could send them back. Big FAT lie. Only if I was willing to pay the $45.00 to mail them back. So...my kids all get a bathroom scrubber, whether they want one, need one.
I got to see my daughter this weekend. She surprised us by showing up late Friday nite, with her idiot dog Dopey. Not his actual name, but what I call him, since he's got as many brain cells as a potato. He's a nuisance. Chews on everything, and if he can't chew on it, then he urinates on it!
So, you can imagine that I spent some of my day, mopping the kitchen floor. I'm sure my two dogs are all so glad to see him leave. He's sort of a bully to them, with my dogs being both older and smaller. And.....the house is quieter, since Dopey is also a howler!
On the agenda this week, is more stitching, and I get to see Phil Vasser in Alexandria, Va. Tickets my hubby bought me for my birthday. Other than that, it's gonna be a quiet week! So...until next week - Happy Stitching!!!!!!
