You heard me right! It's a Crabby New Year! Yay, it's finally time for the Crabby All Year Stitch-a-long! I have everything ready to go and I can't wait to start stitching! I am using DMC floss on Silkweaver's 32 count Lugana, Days Gone By. Here is a quick snap of the fabric, the $$$ buttons and the floss for the first set of designs.
Here is the rest of the thread. I store my DMC in Floss-a-way bags with a 3x5 index card inside. The card makes the floppy bags stand up. Small projects are threaded on rings. On large, kitted projects like this, I use index card file boxes from the office supply to store the threads. Otherwise they are stored in my floss cabinet.
I have been so excited to start stitching! I've heard from most of the SAL participants and they are ready as well. There is a section at the top of my sidebar...everyone is listed there; except for our Crabby friend, Carol, as she doesn't have a blog. Anyone wishing to join in on the fun is more than welcome. There is still lots of time to gather supplies and start...the patterns are simple so it would be easy to catch up even weeks from now! Come on ~ be Crabby with us!
All last night and early this morning, I had it in my head this was Friday...and that I just had to work one shift and I'd have all weekend to stitch. Major disappointment when the weatherman said today's weather; blah blah and Friday's; blah blah. Poo, today was Thursday. That sucks.
Isn't this a pretty fabric? The colors are much prettier IRL. I won this Silkweaver's Solo in a Christmas game at San-Man Originals message board. There is always lots of fun and games and stitchy chat going on there; a really fun message board. Thanks, Chris!
