Greetings from Nitzyland. What a wacko cat. He's been running full tilt back and forth, jumping into snow piles, digging like a dog, sneaking up on his mom and dad, and attacking his catnip pole. Boxes are sliding across the deck, benches bumping into the house, sounds like someone is trying to break in! Anyway, I wanted to show you Mary Moseley. The linen is the coarse 28 count that I like and it never photographs well for me.
I haven't decided (big surprise) on where to keep her but does it really matter? She won't stay there for too long so why do I bother? What surprised me, is that I love the bright color. Usually I change the floss to muted shades but I'm liking this contrast. Maybe Eliza Pumroy should be done in the charted colors. If I could find her, I would check into that but I can't. She was started, floss dyed with gray to tone it down, and she's obviously hanging with the other girls that are missing. Mary in several poses....
Don't the brighter colors look nice for a change? That means my last order from the Essamplaire will be stitched as charted. The designs are all bright and I planned on doing a gray dip, but maybe not! That of course, will depend on my mood at the time. My mood was not good when stitching the over one numerals at the bottom. Regardless of instructions, my thread disappeared constantly. As long as I continue choosing primitive reproductions, my errors and lack of perfection won't be an issue.
My little tool was invaluable when turning under the edges to press. SO much easier to set the width instead of measuring. Time to choose another project which won't be easy. Another R&R? Mary Hazlehurst? A larger piece? Search for Eliza? Too many things on my mind that really need attention. All the remodeling projects are top priority and I don't know how to handle this inability to make decisions.
The wood flooring needs to be chosen by the weekend and we'll be running around looking at options. He is really against the pine but my biggest problem is finding lengths. Even the local mill has bundles with pieces ranging from 12" to 48". Requesting 5' lengths doubled the price, 8' tripled it. You should have seen the look I got when I said I wanted to use finished plywood cut into 12"x 8' strips for the bedroom. So confusion will reign for the coming days.
I'll leave you with a snow covered Nitzy taking a break from beating up his fish.
Thanks for visiting.
Enjoy your day and stay safe.
