Kitting up

I got in the mood to kit things up. I figured I better roll with it since, in general, I hate this task. Especially when the designer hasn't put the numbers (or, in the case of overdyeds, the name) in order. Pulling floss is so tedious to me that I prefer to just do three or four things at once. Yes, it makes it more pricy than one thing at a time, but convenience costs.

So I kitted up two of the Minguistitch ladies, Autumn and Summer, the two LHN ornaments I haven't done, and my Pollyanna Pickering Pandas (by the way, that's kinda fun to say, LOL). Well, I need the DMC Variations for the pandas, because Michaels didn't have them, and I don't know where I put mine, and I didn't have time to run up the Pike to AC Moore before work.

It's been a pretty much glut of S.E.X. today. I got my UK mags for the month. I've been passing up Cross Stitch Gold a lot more lately, just like I gave up New Stitches and Cross Country Stitching a few years ago, but the newest one had a pretty picture of a beagle in it, and a cute Easter line up, so I had to have it. I know--"but you don't have a beagle?" and "Easter is in 4 days." Logic makes little sense in this area. They had the other three I buy-Cross Stitcher, Cross Stitch Crazy, and Cross Stitch Collection. I have to have some time to relax and indulge myself with a leisurely read! Perhaps with a Reese's Peanut Butter Egg?

I did end up running over to Mom's this morning. Robbie was so pleased to see Mummy, he opted, gentleman that he is, to ignore the fact I reeked of his step-brothers, the pittybulls. He wiggled with delight at my arrival, and was, unusual for a Schipperke, rendered speechless--such a funny thing to see a dog just opening and closing his mouth, and wiggling his butt nub. LOL. Mom had a package of fabric I ordered from, nothing fancy, just to back smalls. We were discussing wedding planning, and all the things that still have to be done, and how, just when I think I have something under control, I realize I've forgotten something--now it's the crinoline debate, which we can't solve til I have the dress in hand. Somehow my mother thought I bought my veil, I told her I didn't buy it because I didn't want to spend another $125(at least I think that was the price, my head was spinning) the day we ordered my dress, and so, we're trying to figure out when to buy it, and then where to store the whole deal til the wedding. I guess I'm finding kitting up the wedding ensemble as tedious as kitting up a chart. LOL.

Good luck with the kitting up (in both the cases!!)

I agree the chart one is bitter-sweet experience. You like it, you like it not...

I love getting the colors together for a project. I think I like playing with the floss as much as stitching!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
