Coffee is Magic
I have finally made Praying for a Cure into a pocket. But I'm still debating on wether or not to buy white cording to put round the edges. Once I figure it out I'll post the final finish.
Karen, I'll be leaving almost all my finished pieces in a drawer until about August or until a use comes up for them. Most of the ornaments will be turned into ornies by October, I have some ideas on where they might go, but can't look into until then. The others will basically be on standby. Heather, I try to at least say who designed it, most of the time if it's a progress picture, I may forget after the first post, but don't hesitate to ask, I'm sure the majority of the stitchers out there would be glad to answer. Maria S. I hope you didn't take my comment badly. It wasn't meant that way. I honestly can't tell the differance. But I do like "hearing" about differant ways of doing things, substitutions etc. I've been known to state things quite bluntly and it can get me into trouble. So please keep that in mind. No harm ment. We're all friends here.
Lili, In my opinion DMC's metallic thread is a real pain in the tuckus. Hate it. I usually substitute Krienik 002 #4 for everything. I don't find it fragile so much as it wants to tangle and knot, whiech can make you pull too hard and break it or it will get caught up in the fabric and the same happens. Usually if the metallic is for backstitching or stars in the sky etc I'll wait for last. But the gold helps me figure out where I am. I started out by putting the reds in then going in with the gold. After that I found it easier to use the gold as a referance point. Barbara! It's nice to see you back!
Work is getting better. I think I've finally adjusted to the differant ways of doing things. Mostly due to finally being able to sit down with the department head and going over my fuzzy points. The majority of which I'd been given multiple answers to and none of them seemed to jive with the others. Didn't work yesterday. DH got into a minor car accident on the way home from work. I got the call just as the worry started to nagg. (I'd been waiting for him to come pick me up to go to work, since I don't drive.) After my department was informed that I'd be coming in late due to the accident I was told that they had too many people on anyways and would I like another day off. I took it. Luckily I did. The accident happened just as the police shift changed. so the wait was longer. Hope I got everyone's question and or concern. I'm beat. Hugs everyone. Night!
