Maybe that is because I am working "in hand" instead of having the linen stretched taut on a frame. I am changing the colors along the way. I wanted the sky to go from light at the top to dark instead of the other way around. The silk we are working with is not all that cooperative. It has a mind of its own.
I am totally frustrated with the messiness of my sewing room. I wanted to do more on the basket of Flowers of the Needle. But I can't find the special thread used on the basket! ARGH. It is on a spool and it wasn't where I thought it was. So I may have to suspend stitching and clean stuff up until I find it. Then I was working on Ring of Roses but couldn't find the thread that I wanted. DMC 471 where are you?
I didn't win any of the CA Wells kits up for auction. Oh well. DH says I am an Ebay addict. But he is only partially right. I am very picky about what I bid on. Although I have learned not to bid on stuff when I am angry. I was sweating it the other night when I expected to get outbid and it came down to the wire before I was. Maybe I should stay away from the Bay of Evil for a while especially since I have more stuff to stitch than I have lifetime left.
The trees are starting to turn yellow and orange and red. Makes me want a caramel apple.
