On My Want List....

Here is a link to the DMC floss sample card with the real floss samples.

DMC Floss Color Card (Actual Thread Strands)

BUT - at the moment, they are out - BUT it does say that  they expect to have them in stock again the week of 4/24/2017.

They are $24.99 but anything over $20 is free shipping in the US.  

I know I've been wanting one of these.  But like any good rumor, if everybody starts to write about it, they will sell out in minutes.  So I am hoping to give a heads up to a few people that read me from time to time.  But please whisper it, I'd really like to get one the next round, and the more people that know, the longer the wait to get one will be...  and they already have sold out at least once.  
Picture if they only make 50, or 100.  Maybe they make 20 or maybe it's 1000.  Not a clue.  But any amount would sell out if certain stitch blog people talk about it.  They might push the date - who knows...  so this is a heads up to watch - but please....  shhhhh.....

Stitching On The Sofa

As of tonight - stitching along.  Watching tv.
But I started the day yet again on-line to shop for more stitching patterns.  This time I spent about 4 hours looking before pressing the 'order' key.  So I was quicker...  but that HAS to be the end.   I have ordered enough that I'll get to try some ideas, and different fabric for some other ideas.  
I actually am still enjoying this at the moment.

Goofy Giggles...

I got all the way around on the border, and it met up correctly....
Goofy giggles from me...  dumb luck once again.

I did laundry last Friday... and I had one sock left over.  Okay, I did have one more load, it could be there, and it could be stuck in something I have already folded and put away.  Just to show I am crazy or OCD - I buy all the same socks, and I mark them with a 'Z' or '-' or '^' or '=', something to keep them in pairs.  And I LOVE the fact that I buy 'No Nonsense' brand - they actually say 'No nonsense' across the toes.  I am full of nonsense all the time...  and certainly weird stuff.  So I know I am missing a '^' sock.  Today, I put on a shirt, and I see a sock inside - Ah-Ha!, the missing sock...  I pull it out and put on the shirt, and then I see a second sock on the floor...  I look at the codes, and they match each other and have nothing to do with my missing sock...  I guess this was just a different pair that ran off together - and were vacationing inside a shirt in my closet...    So I look at the matching shirt still in the closet, and inside that shirt was the missing sock...  What? Is there something now about socks running away in threes that I am just now learning about?  Is one of my socks not happy with the sock it's paired with?  And it's trying to see another sock inside my shirts in the closet?  Seems like very lurid sock behavior....  especially for socks that say- 'No nonsense'...

Orange and more Orange

Worked on the house - which is a whole lot of orange.  So I am taking a break from that and now starting the pile of pumpkins near it...  which is actually that same color of orange. 

And a full photo to this point.

The border continues...

The border lined up with the fence - hooray.  It's 15 x 9.5 inches.  And this is the first full skein of black.

Count and Re-Count

I just seem to catch myself counting wrong.  Nothing awful, a leaf, a pumpkin stem, the drop line all the other leaves attach to, the top of a door...  But it's more than usual.  At this point, I'm putting in all the stuff I want to keep, and then I'll see what's there...

Weekend Stitching

Going to finish stitching the weekend away.  Still on the right side at this point.
