Oh boy, am I ever liking this! It's from the March stockings leaflet by BBD, and I'm stitching it over one thread on a scrap of 20 ct white opalescent jobelan with one thread of DMC.
The leaflet model is stitched in greens, but I was in a red kind of mood. And if it's used as a Christmas ornament, I think the reds will be pretty against a green tree. I'll have to adjust the stocking template that BBD provided, too. My stocking is too small for their template. Thank goodness for computers that can reduce images!
As for my posts of the last few days? You are all so, so kind to me with all of your words of encouragement! I'm very grateful for all of the advice and good wishes that you all offer. I mean it! Reading your comments always makes me feel better when my chips are down, and even happier when life is good.
Today's mail brought the acceptance letter and financial aid letter from another one of Colleen's favorite schools, and this letter, while far from perfect, was much more encouraging. So now it's decision time. I'm sure I'll be writing about this again before May 1!
