36 count Purely Primitive from Silkweavers

I finished up that last Quaker star on the way home yesterday and even managed to start and finish the pincushion from the last loose feathers. It was charted for only one initial but there was not enough room for the letter M inside the open area of the design so I did both my itintials over one. As much as I love, love, love BBD, it bugs me to no end that more often than not, not enough room is allowed for the larger initials on designs. I wish they would just take a little more time either to allow the room for every initial or design initials that actually fit in the spaces allowed.
Now I just need the wooden stand and I'll be ready to finish this one totally. I have one on order from Drema but I thought they were going to be ready in June. I'll have to give her a call and find out.
As for my new start I put into my bag my oldest piece of stash. Unfortunately I could not start on it this morning. When I went into my stitching bag this morning, I didn't notice that when I put the hoop in my bag the thumb screw had come off so I had no hoop. Now because of past experiences of not having things I need once I get on the train, I have in my laptop bag extra glasses and extra needles and even most of the time a spare stitching kit. But I don't have a spare thumb screw. :-) And I just can't stitch in hand. I tried for a little while this morning but it's just not the way I like to stitch and my hand cramps up within 10 or so minutes of trying.
And just what did I put into my bag you ask? The Herb Gatherer from Shepherd's Bush. It's almost twenty years old! I'll start it tomorrow.
