Sing it with me....."You'll be back again some day".
Look what arrived in the mail yesterday....
My ABCD by La D Da has been put on the back burner for now. I messed it up! I was stitching right along and when I got to Z it didn't quite fit like the chart said it should. I knew I was off a little bit but I thought I could make it work. I will still finish it but for now it's going in my basket. As soon as I realized it might be beyond fixing (for now) I got the other half of the fabric I had used for it and started another one. This time I didn't stain the fabric and I'm using Splendor black silk. At first I wasn't impressed by the silk at all. I've never used this brand of silk before. It pulled apart like bad taffy but then I remembered some stuff I picked up called Thread Heaven, thread conditioner and protectant. I'll admit I have always been against running my thread through or over anything because I thought it would effect the piece through the years but I was desperate to give this a try...and I AM SO GLAD I DID!! It made all the difference....
Laymie sent me a picture of little Liam yesterday morning. I can't wait to squeeze him!
As I was blog stalking the other day I ran across a blog that posted a recipe for sourdough starter. My mother called it "Herman" when I was a kid. I've been wanting to try it but I need to be sure I understand how to do it before I dive right in. I've looked at a few different recipes for it and now I'm all confused. Do I leave it out on the counter for 3 days or 5? When I take the cup of starter out do I need to use it right away or can I refrigerate it and use it the next day? So many questions about it still. Does anybody have a recipe for "Sourdough Starter For Dummies"?
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments. I love to read them all!
