Then, after a very long work day, interrupted by a doctor visit, I arrived home on Friday to find this had arrived:
Black Eyed Susans
Jackie du Plessis design
Such a sweet design, and something that would be easy to stitch while enjoying the companionship of my buddies at the retreat . . .
But I have prework to do, and Susan Williams to stitch, and this month's Christmas ornament, which hasn't seen the light of day since I took it on my work trip at the end of January . . .If I were going to be gone for a month, with hours and hours to stitch, maybe . . .
Speaking of Susan Williams, she got a few minutes of love last night.
It's time to stitch the verse.
Letters are always my downfall.
I just don't enjoy stitching them.
And parts of these words are worked over two threads and parts over one, and quite frankly, the chart isn't very clear on the placement of the over-one letters. And that is why I decided to get the first letter for each line stitched in relationship to the border, and will let the others fall as best they can.
Grumble, grumble, grumble.
