Around lunchtime yesterday the Boise contingent left Kennewick to return home, leaving me with just the usual chaos of my family. My 96 gallon garbage can is full and bulging over with all the trash from Christmas and family here for three days plus some. I don't know what I'm going to do till Friday and pick up day!! I went to bed a little early for me last night after beginning a VS freebie, "Baby's 1st Christmas". I'll do two of these for my grandsons. Then I slept in until 8:30 this morning. I never feel really tired until everyone is gone, then I crash. Today I'm going to stitch some more on these ornaments and do some laundry and that's about it!
Here is a close up of the W by M Designs that I stitched for my daughter, Mystie. It was stitched on the Smokey Pearl cashel linen with Thread Gatherer silk floss, Spring Rainbow. The color changes in the floss are very subtle from light gray blue, cream, to white that complements the medieval feel of the design. Mystie loves medieval literature and I knew I had to stitch this for her when I saw it. I have more of these from my last S.E.X.capades in Boise (Stash Enhancement eXpedition for the uninitiated!) and am anxious to try them out with some other overdyed flosses!
