Well hi everyone, I know it has been a while but here I am again. You know that old saying "you know you're old when" well yesterday hubbie D and I decided that we were going to an appointment and then go to the TO Home Show. We have attended this event several times and now we figure there is no rush so it would be fun. Our appointment was half way there so off we went.
As we approached the parking lot I was a little taken back by the lack of vehicles in the lot and thought that the show wasn't very well attended this year. We parked went into the building and you guessed it we found out that we were 3 days early for the opening. We both had a good laugh what else can you do. We left and went out to dinner so the afternoon wasn't a total loss. This is also my stitching sister evening so I was back in plenty of time to take part in a short fix of stitching. Due to my earlier appointment I wasn't able to stitch tonight but later tomorrow will be good.
As you can see I never turn away from a good challenge. If nothing else TW taught me a good lesson on patience. This piece however has very few blended threads so that makes this seem a lot easier.
The second piece I have decided on is also large but with a little more of TW in mind as just about every colour is blended but a good challenge. Some days it just doesn't make sense to get up. As you can see this piece is on black even weave and there are some days that I wish I had never seen this particular pattern but who can resist the temptation of a beautiful work of art.
All the designers have wonderful pieces don't get me wrong I won't do them if I didn't like them but OMG do they have to use soooooo many blended threads. The Heron will be wonderful finished but I may be blind by the time it gets done.
Keep on Stitching
