I have been SO BAAAD about blogging…. primarily because I haven’t been stitching as much as normal and don’t have a whole lot to show…. Unfortunately, I’ve been playing Mafia Wars on MySpace for a couple of months and this has seriously interefered with my stitching time…
So, here is the last progress pic I posted:
and here is where I am now:
So… not a whole lot of progres, but I don’t have much left of the border to do, then I’ll be onto the fun stuff!
This project has reminded me of my love/hate relatioship with perle silk.
Love: luscious colors, soft feel, pretty pretty stitches 🙂
Hate: curly off the card, hard to lay due to fiber spring, tangles also do to curlyness, constant attention required to keep twist 😦
The Hate Parts can be alleviated by dampening the length and running it through your fingers, tho, so its not all bad. 🙂
In other news, I booked my summer vacation and am off to the mountains again!! Colorado this time! I lived in Denver for a summer in college while doing and internship, so I’m a little familiar wih the area. Right now I’m trying to get in shape for hiking by doing lots of cardio.. I wonder how much good it does when you are starving for oxygen at 10,000 feet???
Anyone know of a good LNS in Colorado?
