WIP Update And A Shout Out
Firstly, I would love to give a shout out to Joanne, of 123 Stitch. I had let her know about the stitch count being VERY off on Sea Flora a while back on the 10th of this month. She wrote back saying that although I did not purchase the fabric from her, she wanted to send me the entire fat quarter gratis in order to make up for it. At first I was hesitant, as this would mean should would be out of a $17.00 sale. She asked again and this time I figured she meant it, so I took her up on her very generous offer. The 28 count Caribbean Blue jobelan by Wichelt Imports showed up in the mail Wednesday, and I am so very, very happy about that. I thanked her profusely for her generosity and kindness. IMO, she did not have to do that, but she did it anyway.
I have decided that I am going to work with the project as it stands now. I have a couple of ideas floating around, so I am anxious to get back to the project. Particularly after The Hubmeister managed to make me a working copy that I can actually see the symbols. It will be my summer project after I manage to finish this current Bin O'Shame project up.
Well, here is where I am so far. Slowly but surely getting there!
Design: Quaker d'Halloween
Designer: Nathalie Cichon of Jardin Privé
