I have no control anymore; it is as if I am possessed. If I see a chart that I like, first I have to buy it and then I'll kit it up for future stitching. That's when the trouble starts, I look at it every day and then I choose the fabric and by that time it's on. I saw this chart by Joan Elliott and I immediately ordered it as a chartpack. Once it was kitted up I had to start it, never mind I have all those other wips. I blame this behavior on a few dear friends; they are the ones who convinced me that I could do more than one project at a time. They're evil I tell you, EVIL! I know they are lurking out there somewhere laughing and rubbing their hands together. Anyway here is a picture of what the chart looks like and my progress so far, I started it on 8-11-12.
This is Joan Elliott's "Africa" and it is being stitched on 28ct Light Moss Jobelan with DMC floss.
I would like to apologize for my absence , after my last post we went on another weekend trip to Atlantic City for DH birthday, I came back and had my blood work done and found out that with diabetes you can’t eat anything (because it all spikes your glucose levels) and it shows on the A1C blood test. I also learned that hot water heaters only last about 10 years and then they rust and leak into your down stairs neighbor’s utility room ceiling. Of course the homeowners insurance won’t pay to replace the hot water heater and may or may not pay to repair the neighbors ceiling. Loads of fun stuff.
Well I am a little late posting my TUSAL but it is full of beautiful colors and sitting atop my new friend Freddy the frog, I picked him up in Atlantic City, hopefully he’s the only frog to come to my house.
Just a reminder today is the beginning of the August IHSW so relax, find a good TV show marathon, a cup of coffee and stitch to your heart’s content. Thank you to all of my old and new followers for all of the wonderful comments and I promise to do better. Now I’m off to make those wonderful little xxs.
