Adrift, Page 21 is Complete
So this is page 21 complete. Would you believe I still have 15 more pages to do? *wibbles*
I have all ready purchased my next project, that I anticipate starting some time in the new year, as there are only 5 more pages of the Owl left to do. I anticipate I will be working on Adrift for the better part of another year - just enough time for me to start saving up for framing her! After what will be a 3 year project, I will be sparing no expense on framing!
So, I was stitching with my usual group of girls on this past Sunday, and an elderly gentleman came into the store. He must have spent a good 45 minutes in there, on the phone with his wife, picking up various things and explaining to her in detail what they were ask asking if she would like one. He pulled threads, picked up various patterns, discussed in detail the difference between the benefits of Aida versus linen, and then spent the longest time of all at the accessories shelf, picking up various things. He then exchanged a few cheeky barbs with the stitch-n-bitch ladies before he went on his way. But he sparked a healthy debate on what makes a good man - to which we all heartily agreed he was one! But just curious now, does your partner support your stitching addiction? I'm lucky because my hubby doesn't bat an eye when I come home with a $300 frame I bought with my Christmas money, nor does he complain when I ask him to dart into the local stitching store in order to pick me up one colour I'm low on. He's even been known to feign interest when express frustration on shipping costs when I find something I want. In short, he's a good one.
Well, it's nearly Halloween, and it's a struggle keeping my kitty cats in. One is all black and I do worry for him during this time of the year. He's a darter when you open the door, he's out, so on Halloween night we oppress him by locking him in the bathroom while the kidlets come to the door.
And on that note, I hear him scratching at the door. I hope you all have a happy Halloween and happy stitching.
