I brought out "Splendor", which I haven't worked on for months. I'm still scared to death that I'm not going to have enough thread to finish it. If I do, it will be really close so I'm using the petit needles that I get from Vikki Clayton and using every tiny little bit that I can of each length of thread. We'll just have to wait and see. I so love this design and want to do all of the Splendor designs, but since they are only sold in kits (and I don't do kits) I have to see if I can find someone that has done them that is willing to trade or even sell just the chart to me. I was lucky with the first one. I had something to trade for it.
I know Stitching Jubilee is coming up this weekend and I so wanted to go this year!!! :( But I just don't have the funds or the time, since I actually have work to do right now. I work from home (Steel Drafter) and work has been really, really scarce for the past 10 weeks. I'm lucky I work for someone that will carry me when there isn't any work. One of these days I'll get to meet Vikki Clayton and go to her new shop!! :) Maybe next year, if I start saving now!
Hope everyone has a wonderful evening!

I've also developed a HUGE facination with Illuminated Letters. I have our local library looking for some books for me and I've located several on the internet, but just can't afford them right now. There is one especially that I want, "The Bible of Illuminated Letters" which, if I read right, teaches you how to do your own. I would really like to develop some cross stitch designs using illuminated letters!!
Have a happy stitching day!!
Zentangle is finally finished!!!!! I did change out the center design and added my daughter's initials and the year that I stitched it. I was stitching this for my daughter, so I won't be "finishing" it until she decides what she wants to do with it.
One down and many, many more to go!!!!
