before i forget… an answer to a question from my last post by Lisa..
nancy is the wonderful clever talented person who fragments our charts for us in the RR group… she has an amazing eye for proprtion, and is really good at counting ( which i am not… poor girl had to hold my hand to get me through splitting up my Seabreeze chart for my RR piece because counting above defeated me….. trust me only a slight exaggeration)
now onto my rambles
2 sampler pics today..
I did my page 19 of the Tranquility Sampler it woiuld have been faster if i did not first discover in the last row of the dk blue sampler that i made a boo boo in the second row…
It was the footballs fault ( sharon will chuckle there) i should not try and count when the saints are being run down in the last quarter of a game…
then i decided i didn’t like some colour chooices so tested and frogged about 4 colour combos over about half a day, THEN i got it finished early sunday morning, paul was quite surprised when he got back from the gym at 10.30 am on a Sunday morning and i had finished as he knew i had a colour to do today from scratch…
i added in two new colours, the old version of lavender and Aquamarine 2435 .. i am trying to work a paler blue in and it just not working atm and it is frustrating me, i may frog out a colour further up to add it in yet… … yes not only is my middle name Fickle, it is also crazy …

next up is my Patchwork Sampler, i worked on it for a while this weekend as a tribute to Jan Houtman, as his memorial service was on Friday… So i got to play with my belle soie’s a bit more and again was reminded of how lovely fresh Raspberries is, and i stitched Colourstreams Carnivale as well which is really pretty as well as the most stunning Dinky Dyes Colour, Violet.. all you purple lovers if you do not have it , you NEED it… i have mine thanks to some pixie’s from the North

I really enjoyed stitching it again and playing with all my silks , rather than just the colours for Tranquility sampler..
and as for being Fickle..
i wanted Pine Dryad, got her charted… moved on cos then I knew Indigo was being charted..
KKitted Indigo, started her and then , Ching Chou started painting awesome portraits and mermaids..
and yesterday i scrapped Indigo, unkitted her and started Kitting Blue Eyed Fairy.. Sharon insisted ( can i blame her??) as she said.. it is me, pale blonde hair, pale skin , blue eyes.. AND i am not stitching anything of hers even though we chat 3-4 times a week !!
thats seems wrong somehow.. and the thing is if Crimson Glamour is charted or
Purple Silk or Purple Dragonfly Fae which Ching Chou painted with me in mind… well then what will i do??
i think it could be said i am having a weakness period…
