As this blog goes to edit, I am stitching the last penguin on my Rub-A-Dub WIP. I had hoped that it would be finished on August 32-33, 2020. The 2020 is my disclaimer. In the year of our Lord 2020, time seems to be just a suggestion. So, it is either August 31, repeat and then three-peat or just a couple of additional days that happen to overlap September. In my world, it would be the latter. When Rub-A-Dub is completed, I will return to the regularly programmed days in progress.
Apparently “time” is the theme of this blog as I turn to the time traveling Tardis. It will be next up for completion, unless the Christmas wreath catches my eye. I have finished the dark blue thread and will move onto the black. It is looking really nice on the color variegated, linen-look cloth that I chose. Soon, soon…
Wednesday, I worked at Golden Needle as Lisa, the owner, moved her son onto the college campus where he will transition to a student after serving with the Marine Corps. As always, I had a good time—like a kid in a candy store. I helped where I could, visited with customers, and tried to limit my shopping time. I really did…The big news is that I got the third magazine, Stoney Creek Cross Stitch Collection (Winter, 2020) featuring the last pattern of three in the Flowers In Winter Banner, miniseries. This completes my set! I like that the snowmen can be displayed throughout the winter. And, these snowmen are adorable!
In BloomingDaisiesCrafts, get ready for some “vintage” Christmas goodies to hit the website next week! Last Monday, I received the shipment of the perfect lining fabric for last week’s selection and I am now so excited to begin sewing on WIP bags as soon as possible. (Customer orders take priority!) This new line is sure to be a favorite. And, in working to keep the lineup fresh, this week’s new project fabric was picked earlier this week! It features snowflakes of various colors! This will be a winter versus a Christmas theme.
Today begins Labor Day weekend! This means the end of summer vacations, the beginning of the new school year and the last day to wear white shoes (well, not in Florida). But, per Wikipedia: Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. I hope you have the opportunity to celebrate with those that mean the most to you. Have a safe holiday weekend!
