So much to show you today! First of all, let’s talk about my Red Thread. As you may recall when I stitched the first six boxes I found that I only was going to have about an inch of fabric on the left side once my border was stitched. Yes I did count and recount to make sure my boxes were the correct stitch count, and yes I did start from the middle of the fabric. So, I couldn’t account for why there was such a problem on the left side. In order to make sure that I had not done something terribly wrong, I decided to stitch the six boxes to the right of center (again starting from the middle). As you can see, I have even less fabric left on the right hand side.
I’ve been thinking about Valentine’s Day too, I can’t believe how fast it is coming up. I think I want to finish this little Twisted Threads piece that I started back last year or maybe the year before. It’s from a chart called Itty Bitty Romance, and this is called “For You”. It’s stitched over one, and I think I abandoned it because I wasn’t sure the words were showing up well. I think I will continue on with it and see how it looks when finished. I love the design, it reminds me of the candy conversation hearts, which I love. I even have a cute little Twisted Threads tin frame just for this piece. So, I think I will try to finish this for Eric.
Now, I forgot to show you more New York photos last time, so here are some from the Monday that we were there. We started our day off with a trip out to see the Statue of Liberty. You can only go as far up as the pedestal now. And security is really high – two sets of metal detectors, and x-ray machines, plus a bomb sniffer. I think she’s wonderful though.
We had intended to go up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building, but there was zero visibility, so we saved it for another day.
We did go over to Rockefeller Plaza and see the Christmas tree all lit up.
Pretty, huh? It was a lovely night.
Here’s to a wonderful week!
I am grateful for Eric’s safe return.
