Yes, No or Maybe

Note to self:  Never go shopping without your glasses.  I stopped by Talbots to look at a top that I liked in their catalog.  I decided to buy it but didn't try it on.  When I got home, I tried it out.  Whoa, it is kinda big.  Then I looked closer at the tag.  I meant to buy an entirely different size than what I came home with. Without my glasses on, I don't read very well.  So back to the store to exchange it.  Now I have a nice new top for Arizona.

I finished the Montenegrin row and started the words on Mistress L.  I didn't like stitching in all capitals so I tried a different font.

Now I am reconsidering.  It doesn't look quite right.  I thought maybe the words would look better when rows below them were put in so I started a Montenegrin row and a leaf row.  I looked at it again.  Well, it was better.

 But no, I don't like it.  I think I'll have to take it out.  The font just looks  too modern for the sampler.  Rats.

I've printed out my boarding passes.  I'm mostly packed.  I'm ready for adventure!  I'll be back in a week.  Of course, I'll tell you all about it.


  1. Have a wonderful time Amy - my friends Terry and Linda will also be there, but I can't come over this time......

  2. The words are beautiful (and in a font I really like), but I think you're right that it may be a bit too modern - boo.

    Adventure - yea! Will look forward to reading all about it.

  3. Cute top!
    Have a fun and safe trip.

  4. Lovely top! Like the font, but not for the sampler. Enjoy your adventure.
