Well it's been a busy month and a half or however long it's been. (I'll post pics in a later blog, I'm too lazy now.)
I got some new charts, some were RAKs, some I bought. Oh and I started a new job. It's not exactly full time, but it's supposed to be close (tho the last 2 weeks I got sent home early on Thursday :( booo). It's at a bookkeeping/payroll/AR company. I do like it, I just wish it was more hours.
Ok back to the stitching. I got Faces of Faery 168, QS S (Newman), QS A (Newman), QS L (Newman), QS Ladybug Fairy, Baby Dragling (Rak Fairy!), Ballet Shoes, and The Love Letter, both Winter Wings SK charts, and SK Effects of Caffeine. I do loves my HAEDs. I also got a couple of Shinysuns - both of the cute little dragon knights. :)
And there is a new start I started. Ok that just sounded silly, but still true. I fiiiiiiiiiinnally started Rendezvous! Yes that one! I had bought it January 30, 2009, with birthday money from my granny and just had never started. But there is a thing people were talking about, called an Olympic start. One lady on the BB said that she starts something with the Olympics and then has until the next one to finish. Most people are saying the 2016 Rio Olympics, but I think it could be either. So I had the chart, I had the fabric, I even had the floss! So why had I never started it? I don't know either. Anyway, I did start it. I gridded it up, which took about 9 hours spread over 3 days. I don't really know why people complain so much about gridding. Anyway, I did start it, tho I didn't get very far. I know the colors are right, they just look wonky, since there's actually very little actual green and the picture looks like green. But Michele told me that yes, it is right, not that I really doubted. It's just nice to be sure.
I don't think I'll go into the asshattery that happened last night on one of the facebook groups I'm in - short version is some woman went apeshit on me after I made a simple statement . . . holy crap there are some loons on the internet! I don't like being told (by a non-admin) I can't post and I do stand up for myself. Don't poke the dragon, you are crunchy and taste good with ranch dressing.
In other, happier news, I decided to do a RAK/giveaway in honor of one of my best friends. She's only a couple of months older than me, her birtday's in October, and she is the one I stitched the Alien Cat SK for. No that is NOT the chart I am giving away! lol What is it? I hear you ask. Not gonna tell yet!
I've decided that until a few days before her birthday, I will not reveal which it is. I sent her a list and she picked the one she liked best. Yes, it is indeed a HAED! I will be posting clues on Sundays or Mondays until it's time for the reveal! If you guess it, you will get and extra chance (maybe even more than 1, I haven't decided)
My first clue to you all is . . . there is Krenik used in this design.
Good luck to you all!
