Brand new (BRD Read Between the Lines)! Can't wait to put needle to fabric for this!
In Progress (La-D-Da, Quaker Alphabet):
I'm learning about these Quaker patterns. Well, at least this particular Quaker. And that is...take nothing for granted. Just because there are 28 stitches on the left side of one motif, don't bet that there are 28 stitches on its right side. I had been counting and ripping and counting and ripping - until I finally realized that the logic I was looking for just didn't exist. I don't think this is specific to this design or this designer, either. because I've been seeing this observation posted in other blogs.
Finished and framed (LHN Spot of Coffee):
Another thing not to take for granted? When you buy a piece of precut acid free mount board, don't assume that it's square! I kept wondering why Spot of Coffee looked crooked, when I knew that I had carefully placed and laced?? But the bottom right corner seemed to wander off downward like a drunken sailor. Turns out that the mount board was crooked.
Johnny arrived safely in San Diego. Colleen loved the Warhol. Dave played relatively rainfree golf. And I indulged in too much TV. Three Netflix DVD's, the new NBC show called The King, and Masterpiece Theatre's David Copperfield. Daniel Radcliffe was such a cutie, you could just pinch his cheeks.
Hey! My last post was #555! Isn't that funny? Well, maybe just to me....
