Sorry to be such a downer on my last post. I'm leaving the news off for the most part, so if an asteroid is heading towards Phoenix, let me know, will ya? It was nice to hear from many of you that I'm not alone in taking comfort in my stitching. Wouldn't the world be a nicer place if we needle workers were in charge?. Although that would mean major decisions would have to be put on hold while we added to our stashes, converted fibers, and fondled our precious linen. That could be a problem.
There is nothing like a little retail therapy to cheer a girl up. So, I took my own advice and went shopping for charms online late one night. Here is what landed in my cart:
The artist palette is vintage, but not the others. I found a great source here. The Mini-Cooper is my dream car, and my hilarious dh says this is as close as I'm getting to one. The sewing machine wheel turns, and the bottom opens up to reveal scissors, needle, and thread. The one on the bottom left is Noah's Ark. The apple in the center is the really special one as it opens up to these two.
Adam and Eve pop up out of the apple. Is that cool or what? Mr. dh doesn't get it, but you do, don't you?
I've spent a good part of today going through some charts to offer for sale. I don't have a list yet, but I'm working on it. Email me if you'd like to see the list at firstname.lastname@example.org.
