Ah Man!

I have to start Thirteen Colonies all over. H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS! Somehow, I messed up the measurement and my fabric is a good four inches too short. I am so mad at myself right now. I've already decided to go to In Stitches tomorrow and buy a new piece of fabric. Since I have to restart I'm going to get a 40 ct. Now, if I could just go to sleep. It's hard when I'm mad like this. I'm petting Gray the cat as I know his purring will calm me down. Oh, well, enough ranting.

Okay Okay I'll Post!

I have done a little stitching. A couple weekends ago, we had the Stitch n Bitch at March's and we both stitched on the Tavern Sign. I finished the "Needlewoman" and started on the border.

I've also been working on LHN's Thirteen Colonies. I am really loving the colors on this. One of the other ladies at the stitch night at In Stitches is working on it also. I'm doing it on 32 ct. and she is doing it on 36 ct. It's coming out a little larger than I realized. If I were to start it again (NOT!) I think I would do it on 40 ct.
Well, that's all stitch fans. I need to go rustle up some dinner. Hubby is feeling a little off, so I'm on my own. PB&J sounds like it might be good tonight. Thanks for visiting.

I've been having that feeling that I want to start something new. Last Wednesday at stitch night at In Stitches I picked up the new LHN "Thirteen Colonies". I purchased the specialty threads I needed while I was there also. I started it yesterday, but because, dopey me, used the wrong color on the border, I had to pick out all of the brown and re-do it with the right color today. Still, I like the look of it so far.

I'll stitch some more on it later today. Right now I'm taking a break between loads of laundry.

Thanks for dropping by.

A Day Late - TUSAL

We were out of town until last night, so I didn't get to post my TUSAL until now. Not a lot added, but some more.
I have been doing some stitching. I finished the stitching on an exchange piece, I just need to put it together. I haven't finished the whole page, but I feel like I need to post my progress on The Astronomer.

We've had so much going on, I haven't had as much time to stitch. Hopefully I can get some more done this week.

Thanks for stopping by.
