…. is a dangerous thing….
the musings of the past 36 hours or so
So Sue gave me AMAP i will give you 5 hearts chart… part of me says THANKS SUE your an angel, the other part says… NOOOOOOOOOOOOO i want to stitch it ….
i have been looking at silks ( gee what a surprise) and am curious to know what others think of when they first look at this chart.. apart from Dragons Blood ( as in the Vikki clayton silk)
She.. Sue also gave me a chunk of 48 ct silk gauze.. do you know i can not spell that word i ALWAYS have to correct it…
initially as i do my mind turned to HAED.. BUT then i was thinking… why not Kaleidoscope? and i was also thinking.. i know this is way too much thinking to be safe.. she suggest 3 strands of floss tenting.. i am thinking.. hmmm one strand of premium silk?
i am safe there i can’t afford that for a while, but i think it would work…
next lot of thinking… brain started to hurt around now..
eeep ornie SAL what am i doing… so then i blew 2 hours looking at charts and i think i am doing a heart thingy from one of my french magazines… in Dragons Blood.. maybe, or i had a pinky red one in my hand.. can’t remember the name , too lazy to stand up . I do know i will be using porcelain 32 ct linen and doing 1×1 so that is a start..
next lot of thinking.. needed to lay down about now.. my 1 whole metre of antique white PR evenweave linen arrived talk about exciting a whole big chunk of it… WOW!!! at the same time 5 Houtman charts were released or re released.. bad timing for a girl all stashed up with a WHOLE metre of her favourite 1×1 fabric…
here are is the link, the first 3 are new the next 2 are re released..
i love closed tree of Life, but the challenge of a band sampler ( don’t have a band sampler in my repertoire) which is 90 x 820 is quite enticing…
THEN i thought.. why not design my own.. but then i ran away and hid in a new thought to banish that evil little one from my brain
that new thought was.. i need to get the wool for the next shawl for pauls grand mothers x 2 as his Nan’s one is nearly done i reckon a nother week of 6 rows a day and i will nearly be there and i want to grt the other one going.. i think i might do one for me too i am loving bramble stitch now i am into it ..
anyway curent favs are…
Merino 4ply Wonder
Merino 4ply Kelim
Merino/Cashmere 4 Ply Orchid
Merino/Cashmere 4 ply Cherries
but the starting my own design band sampler didnt quite get banished…..
thing is i don’t know where to start.. that is a big problem
so … is anyone still there or are all of your brains hurting.. i have gotten this far and not even mentioned curly tailed Rosie.. i have the chart you know.. she wants to be started she mews a lot …
how many starts have i thought about in the last 36 hours.. anyone keeping count, cos when i went and loked at daniell’s Fairy Moon ( mira) just for a moment i had a twinge of sadness overmy lost wip and thought how cool it would be to start her again in silks… and convert her dress to really pale pink or mauve and a stronger pink or mauve shawl…
i talked myself out of that one quick smart.. though i do have the fab….
so… is it any wonder i continuosly forget things?? with all this stuff floating around in my brain i really do spend all my time daydreaming, sigh..
