It is a special day today. Sweet Claire has a birthday. Don't tell her, but she is getting a doll refrigerator. It's a long story.
I haven't much to show you today. I worked on one of my Williamsburg pieces that I can't show. I started all the rest of the circles on the Queen's Ruff. I think that will make them go faster rather than do an entire one at a time.
My OCD is showing. I want to make the Just Nan Gingerbread Santa Mouse. I don't have the called for linen. I bought some linen at my LNS but it isn't the right color. I decided I have to have the right color. So I went looking on the internet. One place has a fat quarter for 29.50. Another place has just the right size for 3.94 (or something close to that). So I chose the less expensive piece and hope they don't charge me an arm and a leg for shipping.
Then I watched a Flosstube video. They are addictive. I have never done a Mirabilia or a Nora Corbet. This video recommended trying a little bird from Nora Corbet to see if you like her designs.
I love the little bird (the blue one of course). So I ordered it. Of course the place where I ordered the linen for the Just Nan Mouse didn't have the chart so I had to order it from another place (more shipping!). I also took my life in my hands when I said for them to include all the floss needed for the chart. This could be an expensive bird! Especially if the chart calls for silk threads.
I walked at the Y since it is still in single digits here. My sewing room is such a mess that I am embarrassed. I have a box of 2 gallon ZipLock bags. Maybe they can help.
