Just haven’t been in a blogging mood for the rest of the week … and today this is just a quick post before I go sit down in front of a DVD with my stitching – my mission today is to get the majority of the stitching done on one of my exchange pieces, ‘cos I realised I’m seriously running out of time – next week is a really busy one, as Fraze is coming to stay on Wed night, and I have close friends coming over on Fri morning from New Zealand to stay the night, and I’m then heading up the coast to Seaford for the rest of the weekend with a couple of girls from work. So, I’m not allowing myself to be sidetracked with anything else today … that means, of course, I’m behind on blog reading yet again – but only by a few days, so it shouldn’t be too hard to catch up … that’s my job on Monday, if I don’t manage it before then.
Before I go, though, I’ll quickly post my Ebay spoils piccie … here is a HUGE display of my daylight robbery last week – I’m almost embarrassed at the price I got some of it at, although they were through businesses not individuals. The funny thing is that the business I bought the Shepherd’s Bush needlerolls from (as well as all those VS charts very cheaply), is where I’d seen the SB needlerolls here in the flesh … and in the store they were AU$42 each – ridiculous, for what’s actually in the kits! Anyway, I’m very happy I could get my hands on a couple for a reasonable price, to help satiate my current needleroll obsession 🙂 Some of the VS samplers I’ll never stitch in their entirety, but I thought of using parts of them to make up needlerolls … see, totally obsessed!! Most of the other little kits were for use in my charity stitching.
Right, off I trot to my stitching chair – I think the weather is even going to cooperate today and give us a bit of blue sky and sunshine, so I might drag my chair back into the sunlight for a while to save me having to use my daylight lamp at 10am!
I’m tossing up whether to go to the Guild tomorrow, as it’s the guidance group for my favourite technique – Counted Thread … I figure if I haven’t managed to get my exchange piece finished, I could take it with me tomorrow and finish it off … plus pop into Spotlight (sort of like Hobby Lobby, I think) which is nearby, and hopefully get the ribbon I need to finish off my pinkeep … then I can finally post a piccie of it yippee 🙂 Of course, I’ve never managed to get to any Guild guidance groups since I became a member, and it’s a huge undertaking for my psychologically, due to my shyness in ‘social’ situations … but we’ll see if I muster up the courage or not tomorrow …
OK, enough gabbing, off I go … hope you all have a wonderful weekend 😀
