Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Consider yourself lucky…in a way.

First, the good news:

The Saint-Saens worked in blues is back and framed and hanging on my wall. I enjoy it so much! I don’t think I’ll ever sell this one. Call it my “first” that I consider a lucky charm.

Next, the shawl angel is coming along. Here’s the second version worked in some old size 20 (hence the stained thread).
I've still more work to do on this design. I'd like to see how big it will be in size 80, so I guess that's the next step.

Now for the whining:

This living in a house that is staged for sale is not fun. I’ve lost track of so much. The 2 hours each day I spend cleaning and primping is tiring. I’ve decided I will never try to be a full time maid. It makes the characters on Dowton Abbey that much more real to me. I know there are those who see such drudgery as a step up and a good choice for a career, but I’m outa here! I soooo want to be messy for a day or so!!!




  1. Looks like you are going to have a wonderful angel there!! :)

    1. Yes, I'm pleased. I'm working one in size 80 to make sure the pattern is correct.I plan to share it with the class soon. Although probably after the moving van dissappears.
