More Purple

Here is my third progress pic for Long Dog's The Token. So far, I have used up 1 bobbin + 2 skeins of floss. I've noticed that I've been a mix of floss miser and floss waster for this project. I just hate having to start over another length of floss when I only have this much to stitch and I hate it more to have to start a section with a partial length of floss. *shrugs* But that's just me.


In other news... there really is no other news. DH and I relaxed this weekend. Saturday just flew by, but Sunday was more productive. I did laundry and cleaned the den (formerly known as the dog room) a little bit. The walls were so dirty so I thought a little scrubbing with my Mr. Clean Magic Eraser would fix it. It fixed it, but it was so dirty that even though I used up an entire eraser, I still have crap on the walls. *sigh* I think it would be better to just paint the walls. BUT then again, I don't really want to invest any money or time and effort into a room that I don't know what I'll do with.

The Purple Project

I didn't get as much time to stitch this week as I wanted. I've been feeling tired lately. I'm not sure why. I'm glad that I finally finished my skein of 3041 and I can take a progress pic.

I really love working on this project. Not having to worry about changing colors is very relaxing and I'm very happy with the color I picked. :)

Yes, I started something new

I tried to ignore the screaming, but The Token would not leave me alone. It kept begging for me to start it. So I did. :)

I started this project on April 7th. This picture was taken yesterday, April 9th after I finished off the DMC 3041 on my bobbin.

Blackwork Dragon Progress Pic #3

I have used up one whole skein of Flame Caron Waterlilies. I really love this project. Unfortunately, it will have to go back in the WIP pile until I can order another skein (among other things).
