Hello Monday. Isnt it just amazing how cold it is this morning?! WOW!! This winter has certainly been a great stitching season. Snow, Ice, frigid temps. Makes you want to stay huddled under your blankets and stitch the days away. Tea is always enjoyable this time of year too.
I was going through the stash bin of goodies I wanted to work on this month, and I saw that there were a few lonely patterns- without any thread or linen chosen yet. So, I had some fun yesterday in the thread department, and then the linen department. This is one of the most exciting things for me, chosing colors, and finding the most perfect shade you were looking for, you know you have it, where is it?! Then there it is. You can almost hear the choir...."Ahhhhh" Well, I can hear them for sure. I was looking for the most perfect shade of grape, not too pink, and not to purple, and I knew I had to have a skein somewhere. I didnt even have to steal it from another project. You see, the color is breathtaking, but it isnt a color I would normally pick up and have in another project, I usually steer the other direction in color. This one I knew it was meant to be. See, there is a reason we buy skeins---- 'just because'. Someday, there will be a need for it. And, my need came in yesterday (twice actually!)
