Gentle Readers and Dear Friends it's Friday and we have made it through another week.... today we are looking October in the face, so Fall has really arrived!! Also, we are quickly coming up to the big 3 Holidays.... only 33 more days until Hallowe'en.... only 55 days until Thanksgiving... and only 88 until Christmas... time is ticking away quickly!!
Yesterday the mail brought a wonderful RAK from Beth, from over at Beth's Crafts. She wrote me a while back that she was de-stashing and would I like to have the "bunches and bunches" of DMC she acquired during a sale. I thought that was so kind and such a sweet gesture and excepted. Well, she sent me a box jammed packed to busting full of skeins of DMC floss....... here's a snap...
..... there are 100's of skeins of floss!!! What a kind generous thing to do, and I thank you so very much. I have started to sort through them, and now need to figure out a good way to store and keep up with what is here. Stitchers are just the nicest people!!!
I also wanted to get a couple of snaps of ATS posted to show you where it stands at the moment.... an over all shot...
As you can see I shifted some of the verse to make it a bit less wonky, but not too even. I am not very happy with the way Mr Lion is so looking very two-toned, I am thinking I need to frog out the light shade and make him more even coloured. it amazes me how the variation in skeins is so great - these are both labeled "Tarnished Gold" - I guess one is more tarnished than the other. And, here's a close up shot of the section 5 ...
I am just dreading the grass in the final section, but like everything else it is just in the doing and it will get done!
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks for stopping by, and for your super comments, I do appreciate them. Just a quick note about next week, I will be away from the Blog and in Florida - without computer access - so no posting/emails until October 8th or 9th. I am visiting my Mom and will be there for my Birthday next week.
