If so, may I borrow it? I saw it somewhere in my online travels with a notation that it's a Stacy Nash design. I was unable to find it anywhere so wrote to Stacy who said it may have been a design she did for a stitching club & therefore she is out of the picture. I would love to stitch this.
Thank you all for your comments about my Shirlee & Ruthie post. I have just been reveling in those memories since the day I received that Bent Creek chart : ) I'm glad that my story brought back memories for some of you as well!
Remember the HE 2011 ornament I was stitching earlier this week, Jingle Jingle, with the yellow spot? There was another spot on the fabric which was away from the design so I tried a bit of spot remover on it. It did not totally take out the yellow but it faded it enough to where I really could not see it unless I put it underneath a daylight light. Therefore I spritzed a bit of the spot remover on the yellow spot along my stitching line. Naturally not only the spot but the fabric faded in this area so now it looks like this ...
I'm not sure why my fabric looks gray here. It's a rather rich color of tan, but can you see the faded area there to the left of the J? It sticks out like a sore thumb in person : ( I figure I will spritz a bit more around the outside of the design to fade more areas & it will look like it was meant to look that way : ) Either that or I will have myself a pretty snazzy dishcloth!
I started another HE ornament on Wednesday. This is their 2007 ornament titled All Is Calm. I'm using all the recommended threads this time as well as the recommended fabric. Another really fun stitch! I foresee lots of HE ornaments on my tree next year : )
Health wise I'm feeling almost back to normal again although yesterday I decided to do the dishes & move everything off the counters to clean them. That little bit of activity really knocked me out ... lol! Then for dinner I decided to make muffin pizzas. Not a big undertaking. The problem was that for the past week & a half I've been eating stuff like soup & toast & once in a while splurging on a cheese sandwich. I use hot sausage on my muffin pizzas & really load them up with it. Not a good thing to put into your tummy after a bland diet ... lol!
The gifts I showed you back a post or two ... the ones still under the tree ... have been added to : ) Yesterday I received a package from my friend Paula in Portugal. She had mailed me something way before Christmas & it took this long to get here! Anyway, Sophie is fascinated by a couple of the gifts & enjoys sniffing around them & even lying next to them. She looked so cute yesterday that I had to take her picture : )
Regarding my stocking gifts from my friend in North Dakota, I am afraid that I may have given the wrong impression about them & that I may have appeared to be bragging or something. The farthest thing from my mind, believe me! The gifts Mary & I exchange are very inexpensive things like pencils or candies ... maybe some DMC or little notions of some sort I almost opened these gifts yesterday but just couldn't bring myself to do it. I'm not ready to let go of Christmas yet ... lol! However, I think I will probably open them sometime this weekend. I should be well enough to put away Christmas next week. Of course next week I have my dental surgery so who knows!
I have been unable to comment on some blogs for several days now ... not all blogs, just some ... & I've discovered why this is. If you have a comment box that shows up at the bottom of your post, rather than a person clicking to leave a comment & being taken to a different page or getting a comment popup box, then I can't comment : ( Hopefully Blogger will fix this soon.
I wish you all a happy day! For me the sun is shining & our temps are supposed to be in the 60s. BLAH!!!
