I finished the Time and Season Sampler! Yay!!
I used 40ct Earthen linen by Picture This Plus with the called for DMC -- except for the light yellow. My local AC Moore didn't have the called for light yellow so I subbed as best I could.
This was a fast stitch, despite it not looking like it was. It was fun to stitch too.
People have asked if the girl child had a real fireplace in her freshman year dorm room. The answer is yes and no. The dorms on campus are very old and thus some rooms have real fireplaces. But I assume that like this one, most do not actually work -- they've been made into fake fireplaces. So yes, there was a mantelpiece and all, but just a nice finished space where you would normally put a fire. The girl child was very lucky and had a nice dorm room for her freshman year.
It'll be busy around here the next couple of days. We're getting ready to send the girl child off to Spain for a month of study abroad. I think both she and I are nervous -- she fixes the nerves by playing WoW (World of Warcraft) and generally not getting ready. :D And I fix the nerves by being nervous and thinking of more and more things to do to get ready. I think our methods tend to conflict. As always. A procrastinator and an early bird just don't mix well together. Sigh.
In other news, is anyone else into tennis?? French Open time!!!! :D :D
