Ho Hum....

I never stitched last night. I just kinda 'vegged' out on the couch. This #$*% cold had just taken all my energy!!!

Becca and I had fun at Hobby Lobby on Tuesday. I got my DMC for DT Game Board, the missing ones for Easter Bouquet, and some goodies for an exchange I have coming up. I also got two M Design needlerolls on clearance! One was $1.60, and one was $1.00!! When we returned home, I was good and went to put the fibers with the charts. Oops! We picked out three wrong colors! (Becca probably couldn't read my scribbling numbers!) So, yesterday after work, I ran over to Michael's and picked up the three 'right' colors. And, can you just get three floss??? No!! I also picked up a few more goodies for the exchange. :-) Now, I have to get everything together to get ready to mail.

I'm behind on reading blogs -- again! I'll try to catch up soon. I am going to stitch tonight on my Quaker Sampler. I really want to keep up, and not set it aside, for something else, even tho I want to stitch on the DT one, or something springy. Only a few more motifs to go, and this installment will be done. It seems like when I have stitched this week, it has been slow going... must be the cold.

Thanks for the comments -- you make posting on the blog worthwhile! (and Cee Cee thanks you also!) I'll have to take a few pictures of Shadow soon, and share them with you all.

Best get off to work...

Yes, sometimes we have to take a break from our stitching. Hope you start feeling better soon. Looks like you got some real bargains at Hobby Lobby!

So sorry your cold lingers. Get well soon : ) Isn't bargain shopping delightful? Always a treat to find interesting things on clearance .... LOL.

I have not received my DT Sampler Game Board pattern - yet. The LNS was expecting it to arrive any day ... maybe next week I'll have it in hand & join in the SAL.

You did get some real bargains there, Myrna!! Love those markdown baskets. :D
Hope you feeling 100% really soon!

I'm fossilized ... forgot to ask:

Since you are not going to actually use the 'gameboard' -- are you going to stitch all the motifs in one direction?

I noticed the houses are one directions & the 'spaces' are upside-down.

But, if you put it on the wall -- would it look better for everything to be one way?

Oh wow, M Designs needlerolls for $1 - I'm definitely green with envy!! Hope you're feeling perkier by now and getting your energy back again :D
