I've been slowly working on my latest stitch. I decided to add another color to the mix. When it came time to stitch the alphabet in this piece I wanted it to be in a different color than the bird. I want that cute little bluebird to stand out so he will be the only BLUE in this piece.
I apologize for the nasty pic. I ran an iron over it in light speed and threw it over the desk chair for a quick photo-op. Remind me to go check and see if I turned my iron off.....
I thought since the alphabet was positioned in the upper left corner it should resemble sunshine...kinda...sorta...does that make any sense? It was my mistake that I started stitching it with two threads instead of one like I had been using thus far. I had already stitched a few letters when I realized I was using two threads so I decided to continue on this way. I tell ya lately I have been all about embracing my mistakes and working around them! It's a sickness I NEVER thought I would be afflicted with but I'm workin' it girl!! I was always a perfectionist about my stitching before so this is as big of a surprise to me as it is to all you other perfect stitchers out there! Oh by the way...I'm using DMC #783 for the sunshiny alphabet.
Masterchief and I went to Sam's Club today. When we plan to go there it's usually an all day event. It takes about 1 1/2 to get there from home. He is out mowing right now and I'm feeling a bit guilty for not being out there helping him. It's awful sticky out there!
I followed the advice of a couple dear bloggy friends and changed the way the comments are left on my blog. Please let me know if this is easier for you.
I also noticed that my one year blogaversary is coming up at the end of this month! It hardly seems like a year. I want to have a giveaway of some sort but right now I have no idea what I will be offering. Be looking for a giveaway announcement soon! I'll come up with something. I'll have to keep this on the DL or Masterchief will be wanting to throw in a bottle of his favorite BBQ sauce! Shhhhh....... :o)
Hope the remainder of your week is cooler than mine!
