I know you won't believe it -- but I have a stitching finish!!!
This is, of course, Yellow Submarine, by Blackbird Designs. I stitched it on the called for Cedar Plank linen but in 40ct (I think it was Cedar Plank!) by Lakeside linens. I used mostly the called for Gentle Arts threads, but not all. Once again I got frustrated by how the overdyeds weren't even close to the expected colors and changed a few colors to other GA colors and some DMC threads for the sub.
**An appeal to designers: please stop using these overdyed threads!! It's impossible to get the colors you use in your designs since the threads are never consistent in color. It leads to frustration for your fans.
Anyway, it was a fun stitch. Anyone who has followed me for a long time knows I'm a huge Beatles fan.
I also finished and blocked the back of my Right Angle Sweater. This one seems to be taking forever to knit!
The boy child has been settling back into being at home. The living room is looking like a living room again, and boy child's room has been cleaned and rearranged to his liking. And Mia is quite content to have him back, albeit with a few hisses along the way (she always has to show her displeasure at the long abandonment the boy child subjected her to).
We've also had an outing or two, which is always nice. Just missing our girl child.
(The sushi was a different day from the other pics in Cold Spring. In case you were wondering.)
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
