feeling better

Hummm, this doesn't look like the Great Pumpkin Conspiracy. :-) Last night I was pulling all the DMC threads required for the piece and I was missing around 8 or so colors. I'll run to the store tonight after work and pick them up. Rather than hunt around the piece for areas that I could start on, I decided to wait until my kit is complete. So it was back to Summer Basket this morning. I'm almost half way complete with the piece and the rest of it will fly as it's the alphabet, the Quaker star border and the rest of the zigzag border. I'll toss it into my agility bag and maybe get some stitching done there. And I might put HoHRH aside and push to finish this so I don't have it outstanding once I start GPC.

Clancy squirting is much better and at this point I'm fairly certain we are going to give this weekend's agility trial a go. Thanks for all your warm wishes. :-)

So beautiful! I love the colors! I like your idea of finishing this one so you can move on to the Pumpkin Conspiracy piece. :D Glad Clancy is feeling better. Poor thing! And poor you too! It's not fun dealing with diarrhea for either of you!

That is so beautiful. Very subtle and elegant.

Lovely work!! Isn't it aggravating when you're missing so many threads? Oh well, at least you had something else to finish. :)

Hi, Margie! I just love your Summer Basket..just beautiful. I know what you mean about those missing DMCs. OMG..I have sooo many threads of DMC and Anchor; but, it's always 1 or 2 threads that I can never find that's the killer!! :{ Then, once I'm at the store to get the missing threads, I'm tempted to kit up other charts...I think those missing DMCs are like the missing socks in the laundry! A conspiracy from somewhere unknown!!!
Poor Clancy.
Hugs,
Deb

I'm happy to hear Clancy is on the mend. Being under the weather is NO fun!! Love your Summer basket, especially the birds, the colors are so soft and I bet it is even more lovely in living color!
