Truckin'





Truckin' got my chips cashed in. Keep truckin', like the do-dah man


Together, more or less in line, just keep truckin' on.




I seem to be on a lyric themed blog posting juggernaut here lately, but honestly, it's been fairly apropos. Last blog post centered around a song by the Cardigans, today's is by the Grateful Dead. My current piece is really coming together quickly. So quickly in fact, I have to slow down a bit because I am waiting on floss and beads to come in and I am a tad worried that I will get done before it arrives!  I've had one minor hiccup and that's it. Seems I am with the fairy I am supposed to be, yea? :)


Welp, at any rate, here she is so far: 







Design: Letters from Nora Letter O


Designer: Nora Corbett 


Fabric Used: 32 count Cashel linen in Crystal Fog






Fibers Used: Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Argyle Socks, Bejeweled, Cloud, Cobbled Peach, Desert Mesquite, Heatherleigh, Hickory Sticks, Hydrangea, La Tierra, Old Blue Jeans, Vintage Violet, Wisconsin Woods. Kreinik (#4) Braid in Blue Merengue #3514.  Mill Hill glass seed beads in #00252 Iris, size 11/0 2.5 MM and #02001 seed beads in Pearl size 11/0. 



What it will eventually look like: 





As of Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014: 





As of this morning, Friday, April 25, 2014:




Well, I had best be off. It's almost time to get ready for work. I've been taking my husband's motorcycle in and it's been a blast. :)


Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)
