..2010! I just love saying it, "twenty-ten". Don't know about anyone else, but I'm so over the "two-thousand and's"! GOODBYE! And as my sometimes crass hubby says (not to me of course) "and don't let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya"! Sorry. He's got a million of those, trust me!
Anyway. So Happy New Year! I'm a little late posting that cause things have been pretty crazy around here. That and I'm
I have no real plan for my stitching in TWENTY TEN (squeeee!!) except to stitch as many tombstone samplers as I can get my hands on. I finished this one in December, but didn't want to post it then as everyone was in the Christmas spirit and all...
this is Tombstone Angel by Carriage House Samplings
the design was in the October 2008 issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine. I stitched it on 36 ct. Pear from Lakeside with NPI silks, one over two. A very enjoyable stitch!
Now, you may remember, I have a slight obsession with morbid stuff. I know there are others out there that share this love of tombstone samplers. I've gotten my hands on a few of them, thanks to ebay and Kathy Barricks etsy shop, but still can't find
these four: Abigal Adams, Prudence Blackstone, Patience Ivy or Sister Spirit. I asked Kathy about them and she said they are from the Chartmakers line of designs, (a collaboration she did with Anne from The Good Huswife) which are all out of print, and those were Anne's designs, not Kathy's and they are not available for sale. Yet. Anyway, if anyone has any of these and would like to trade or sell, please let me know! I have several of the other tombie samplers I could trade for. Other stuff too. I could also beg. Oh wait, already doing that, lol!
zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz oh sorry, I fell asleep for a sec there..
anyhoo....that's about all the stitchy stuff I have going on right now.
Now, for something completely unrelated, check out this thing growing on Astro's face.
If you click on the pic you will see it more clearly, to the left of his eye there (and please excuse the eye booger on his lashes, I didn't see it when I zoomed in for the pic). This thing just popped up and grew that big in a matter of weeks. Obviously, he's going in to his Dr. Jan (what he calls his vet), but seriously...it's very worrisome for his mother....what do y'all think? I'll let you know what the doctor says!
Thanks for visiting and I hope y'all have a great week!
