I got these yesterday, I wanted to see what all the fuss is about w/the Needlerolls. :o) Just outta curiosity ... whaddaya DO w/these things? Do you actually stick needles in 'em?
I got this sampler just 'cuz I thought it was cute. I've never done one, and for some reason (other than the price) this one appealed to me.
Hm. Other news: I stopped w/the WBP, I was just disliking it SO much that I went ahead and ordered a HUGE piece o' fabric in 20 ct. from Silkweaver. I love the pattern and I didn't want to continue w/what I had 'cuz I could so see that one ending up a(n) UFO.
Another Zweigart sale at the fabric store. Got 1.5 yds of 18 ct. Cream @ 50% off.
Also went ahead and ordered fabric for this baby, 'cuz if I don't have the fabric, I won't ever do it. I ordered Blue Sky from Silkweaver for this one. That way (with a little luck and some careful planning) I won't have to do the background. For whatever reason, this has been my favorite picture, ever, from all the classics. (Hmmmmm. Maybe I'm more "innovative" than I thought!)
Still haven't gotten any of the stuff I've ordered off ebay; a couple 4 or 5 Mira's and some fabric. I'm waiting ... patiently ... damn it.
And finally, to answer a question, I've stitched on much smaller than 28 ct., I'm just finding that I don't like it, at all. This IS my first 28 ct. so maybe it's just my albatross for xstitch fabric. I'm a firm believer that if something is not 'flowing' then there is no point to doing it. Find a way around it or just stop. There are SO many other things, that I enjoy, that I could be doing. Pretty much my philosophy on everything ... jobs, crafting, reading, life in general. :o)
So on that happy note ... Happy Tuesday all!
