Another new moon, and another Totally Useless Stitch Along post. This month I have a valid reason for posting late: one of my uncles passed away very early yesterday morning. Although I hadn’t seen him for many years, when I was younger and through my teenage years he was a very big part of my life. I spent a lot of time at their home, and even showed dogs with my aunt at many dog shows around Ontario. (We showed schipperke, whom I adored.)
As sad as I am, life goes on. As everyone always says, he is in a better place now and he really did live a long, full life.
This month my jar is filled with ends from Sheldon, some perforated paper from goodness knows where, and a little bit of DMC from…
Gingerbread House (which now just needs the windows done and the backstitching) and
First Dragon Encounter by Jennifer Aikman-Smith, which I took as a class at the Creativ Festival a year or two ago. I think I am going to rip out her skin though, as it seems just a bit too pink for me. I know Jennifer said she had trouble with her first choice since DMC had shifted the colours, but I’m not sure this one works either.
Anyway, if you’d like to know more about the TUSAL, check out DaffyCat’s blog here.
