Crazy January Challenge: Day Five
With Thy Needle and Thread
28 count Antique Ivory linen, unfortunately, the wrong size
Called for DMC threads
I didn't start this until the evening. I rallied in the morning to take Stella to the dog park. At the fifty minute mark, I was starting to feel dizzy and since I still had to drive home, we packed it in. When I got home, I curled up on the couch. I started doing the math to convert this chart from 32-count to 28-count and promptly fell asleep for two hours. (It begins with two 12" squares, which has more to do with the finishing than the stitching.) At around five the dude and I were both so hungry that we ate! I think we're on the mend.
Miriam, who's keeping us entertained in the comments through this challenge, wanted to know how I am storing all these projects between rounds. They are all jammed into my big stitching bag. Unfortunately, this is going to put a serious cramp in my style when I have to travel to stitch night in Chadds Ford.
And just a word to my other commenters, if you have your e-mail address in your blogger profile--or if you're not on blogger, on your blog--I will be able to respond to you. I would love to respond to your comments by e-mail, but I am thwarted, thwarted! Please consider it.
