Crazy January Challenge: Day Four
Sticks by Mill Hill
It would be too cliche for me to complain about sorting out kit fibers. Since Mill Hill provides DMC floss numbers for their kitted floss, I went straight for the numbers in the bobbin box. Not for me trying to discern between light golden brown and dark tan, between medium blue gray and medium gray. The medium orange and light orange were nearly indistinguishable until I laid the strands on the numbered bobbins. And if you had seen the dark orange next to the light golden brown, you would have taken pity on me. But I'm not complaining because it's all sorted now.
Of course, I need your pity because, yes of course, I caught the dreaded lurgi from the dude. I don't have it quite as bad, but being nauseated all day can put a monkey wrench in the plans. We had mercy on poor Stella and the dude took her to daycare while battling waves of nausea (that must have been a long drive!) She zonked out on the couch next to me, while I worked on the dog that I think looks most like her. I think the brown dog looks like my mother's nearly 15 year old lab, Coco, so I plan to make the brown dog's ears longer and more Lab-like. Of course, if you are struggling like Miriam to figure out what the heck these projects are going to look like, that won't mean anything to you. Love Me, Love My Dog will look like this when it is completed.
