floss shortage :-)

I ran out of one of the two colors of silk floss tonight that I need to finish A Quaker Study. :-) Yes, I'm not so sad. :-) I was looking for a reason to put this aside for a couple of days (weeks?) and I got it. I called Drema today and ordered a second skein and I'm sure it will arrive by Friday but a break is good. I'm not sure what I'm going to pick up but I'd like it to be small so I can get it finished by next week so I can finish A Quaker Study sooner than later. I really am on the home stretch with this one. Just seven small, two medium and one large motif left and I'm done!

A break will be good for you!

Very glad you got your guilt-free break!

I'm so sorry you're not enjoying working on this beautiful design. What are you plans for it once you do finish it?

I guess I never realized you were such a one-at-a-timer.

Nice timing for a break. Then you can restart and just get it finished off ;)

It's definitely looking good!! And your little pug is SO cute. I'm generally not a pug person per se, but with yours, I've had to make an exception!! :)
