but lots of other stuff happening - hence, the lack of needle to thread!
I have sold things on eBay, but never bought. It seemed like it took forever. She put in the posting that she worked a full-time job and would not ship until the end of the week. I won the bid on a Tuesday - so it was a few days before they even shipped. But when I received them - WOW, they are all in great condition. The oval one will be harder to find a base for, but the rest are pretty nice size. The smallest one is 2.75 inches and the largest a little over 6 inches - so now I have enough that I can share. I'm thinking maybe for auction or donation prize at my guild, one for a friend or two for their scissors and then maybe a giveaway (is there one in my future)???
On the stitching front, I have been basting a long, long piece of linen for a friendship sampler I will be starting in September - that's been it - boring, no picture! I can't wait to start it though - it's with the group of gals I get together with as often as possible...(I will miss you all on Monday - more on that later). I have my fibers, I have my band kind of planned, I am basting and I hate doing that! But on to better things soon!
This is the big one - over 50 gallons - and tons of really cool fish - some just had babies and they are fun to watch.
Then there is LG; that would be Leopard Gecko. I know, original name, but it fit ;0} and it stuck. He's 5 years old and was only about 1.5 inches long when he came to live with us. He's now about 7 or 8 inches long. He's cool! He sheds frequently and that is very interesting to watch. He goes from very opaque to beautiful spots and coloring!
So why am I not stitching with my pals this Monday - have to go to registration with DS for his senior year. He has some scheduling issue that I know are going to be hard for him to take care of without an adult present - they won't argue with me - and he won't argue with them! I have the whole day off, but may go in to work in the afternoon if we're done early and save my vacation time. Final registration - whew!
not sure yet if I will attempt the wool pillow and the cross stitch - or just the cross stitch. I have not done anything like this wool applique but I know that if I take it step-by-step, I will figure it out. I have never purchased wool like this before, I am sure my local fabric stores will help me out. I think the pillow would look great with my other seasonal pillows in my family room (see in several previous postings). What do you think?
Have a good week. Hope you put needle to thread, whether with a machine or simply with your hands, enjoy!
