So, my Gazelle floor stand arrived today!! Woo Hoo! I will take a proper picture of it tomorrow in the daylight. It arrived today, record time, coming from Florida...shipped on the 7th of March. We spent probably about an hour putting it together. The lady that I bought it from wrote out directions but I couldn't make heads or tails of them so we winged it! I can't figure out the scroll rods that she sent...I will have to take a picture of them. They have a piece of fabric stapled to them, but no split in the wood to put the fabric in. Do I sew the linen to the fabric stapled to the rods or what? I so don't get it. For now, I have my giant q-snaps on it with CEF in place. I think that I would rather use the scroll rods though...the q-snap wiggles a little bit.
I am thinking of getting this design with my DSL gift cert from Jenn. I just love the Bleu de Chine designs...actually I love many many french designs. My favorite magazine has to be "Point de Croix". I have a pal in France that sent me one once...fabulous! The Bleu de Chine designs are so pretty, I really want them all. I am going to have to search for the designer's website (if one exists) and see what else there is out there.
I just finished this up, it is the Britty Kitty ornament from 2005 JCS ornament issue. I am "Brittied" out for a while. This was our "March" selection. I really like the fact that at the end of the year, I will have at least 12 ornaments done. I need to start working on April's selection, the "Joy Tree" from the same issue. I am going to do it over one on 28 count as well. My goal is to have it done before we lose our computer connection for the move.
So, this is my last week of work...YIIPPPEEE! I will be so glad to be unemployed, even if that means that I will never get the Coach bag that I am longing for. Oh well...I could always beg Mom for it, LOL. I am just looking forward to time off to do whatever it is that I want all day long!
So, I think that is about it for now. I will try to post an update later this week. Gotta work on getting some Ebay winnings packaged up. Kim, if you are reading this...I found another freebie in one of my stitching groups that I will include!
