A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
It's TUSAL time, the Totally Useless SAL where we all show our ORTS and link-up on Daffycat's blog.
Here is my TUSAL jar with two projects:
I left all the orange floof in the tin so you can see how much there is. That's my evening ORTs tin and there's usually very little in there. But this month I decided to frog a large piece of the goose.
Have a look at the previous photo of goosie:
Satsuma Street - Nest Egg
stitched on 32 count Belfast in Marie's Daffodil by Chromatic Alchemy
The orange in her back was one shade too dark and the more I looked at it the less I liked it. So I frogged it and will restitch it. I do love those eggs but I feel this will benefit from some backstitch, just to outline the eggs and the goose. Not black but a dark grey.
The other project in the TUSAL photo is my spooky conversion of the Enchanted Alphabet by Lavender & Lace. I am adding a large full moon charted from a photo of the actual moon using Pic2Pat. I am happy with how it's turning out but progress is a little slow thanks to extra work shifts due to World Book Day this week. Today I did shop visits for 93 Primary School children aged between 5 and 9. Luckily not all at the same time!
Finally, here's some rocks I painted for World Book Day, these will be hidden in our shop over the weekend for children to find:
