Well, I’ve decided part of Ethan’s extreme crankiness was because he was sick. He has a little respiratory bug with a fever and has taken his crankiness to a new level!
I’m almost done with JBW’s Country French Rooster as you can see, such a fast stitch and of course I have a pillow planned. I had to remove the verse from my Northanger Abbey Sampler that I stitched in the wrong color, I’ve decided to finish up the border on this one and save all my hand-dyed fiber work til the end.
I did find a moment for a long drive to a quilt shop I had never visited before. Long enough to enjoy most of the 3rd act of Die Walküre. When I got there I found out they were having a sale. The shop was very crowded and really large, almost too much to see. I have found a good source for 1930 repro fabrics now though. You can see the fqs I picked up while I was there. Angela S – I didn’t find any red/white toile but they did have this pretty red and white floral.
Tyler has left for a week of visits to colleges in the midwest. I hope he has a good time, wears his seat-belt, and doesn’t run out of money. It makes such a difference to the noise level here when there are only 2 boys around. I’ll miss Tyler, but enjoy the quiet. I have a lot of paper writing to do this week so it is good timing.
If anyone out there has a CrossStitcher Magazine issue 173 they would like to trade, please let me know. I would love to stitch the Dutch Windmill in that issue for my kitchen.
