I was this close to finishing LoHaR this weekend, and then I ran out of thread. And since I just recently almost broke my arm with patting myself on the back about altering colors in another design, you would think that running out of WDW London Fog and needing to substitute something else for these….oh…FIVE and a HALF letters, would be just a little bump in the road.
But NO. I couldn’t make myself do it and decided that I needed the exact thread I had been using. So I’m waiting for the Postmaster to put one little skein of thread in my mailbox. Happily, Mary Kathryn over at Handcraft Online had a free shipping weekend, so I ordered my one skein and didn’t get stuck paying more for shipping than for the actual thread.
I knew that I needed two skeins of thread for the lettering, but three? I don’t know what I could’ve done to use less. I don’t carry threads from one letter to another unless they’re very, very close to each other, so maybe it was all of the starts and stops that ate so much thread.
I had an more excitement than I bargained for this weekend. More later!
