Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you all so very much for you kind comments and emails about Monday's post. You are all so encouraging!! BTW have you seen "September Cottage"?? I pulled the recommended DMC and two WDW's floss' and have started thinking about the conversion of the solid colours..... I do like the use of red for the house - reminiscent of a School House.
The only stitching I ave done is some bits on ATS - I haven't bothered with a snap, yet. I'll get one up when it is a bit more interesting to look at.
I have been pondering an email question I received a couple of weeks ago - basically the question was the way I use the word "finish" in regards to a piece of needlework. As I explained, the way I use it is when I have finished the stitching - I have finished. The questioning emailer took a different stance - she thought that it really isn't finished until the piece is either framed/or made into something. I disagree with that definition - as I have some piece languishing in the finished pile and have been in that pile for a few years or more - and I think they are finished, but just not usable. I would hazard a guess that she would rather I use the word "completed" when only the stitching is done - and maybe that's more correct..... but I picked up the use of "finish" a long time ago and as I am loath to change in anything in any form - it might be a while before I can switch or get comfortable using "completed." I wonder what is the consensus out there in regards to the use of these to words when referring to our stitching projects?????
I am taking off early tomorrow to go and see this super musical on the big screen. TCM is sponsoring in select cities screenings for the 60th Anniversary. I am really excited as I have never seen it on the big screen. Woo Hoo!!!
That's about it for today sports fans - Thanks for stopping by - do stop again!!
