Not the best title, but . . .
The Chinese New Year started yesterday. It's the year of the Dragon, the luckiest year! I might be a little biased, since I am a Dragon as well (1976 was a good year all around), but apparently, in many Asian countries, birth rates are increasing as people try to ensure their babies are born this year. I knew there was another reason I knew 2012 was going to be a lucky year in Crazyville! Now I just need to find a few small dragon charts to stitch (and finish Icy Dragon, whose chart seems to have gone on an adventure) to celebrate the event. Would anyone like to join me?
Yesterday was a thoroughly rotten day, weatherwise, and I must have felt it, because I could barely lift a needle when I got home. I discovered a mistake in Fresh Fallen Snow--the little snowflake, bottom right, the top right arm(is that what that is, arm, spike, tentacle?) has a mistake. I discovered it after repeating said mistake on 2 other arms. I'm too OCD to leave it in, so picked it out. That must have completely worn me out, because I was asleep by 8:30, then woke up at 10:55 because Beazer was snorting on the other side of the bed (this must be a characteristic of short-muzzled breeds, this snorting thing. I've always had long-muzzled dogs, Robbie is quite the silent one when he wants to be. Which isn't often). Anywho . . .
Oh, while I'm here to mention it, I know a lot of stitchers use Jammer boxes to hold their floss. When you can find them. Apparently the Jammer people found out we do this, and are remarketing them for stitchers. Joann's is carrying them now. AND THEY'RE ON SALE!
I ordered three, since I rounded up all that floss. Now, if anyone knows a good source for bulk paper bobbins, I'd be a happy camper.
