You have to click on this picture to get the larger one to see the real progress. I'm using GAST Kudzu on the grass in a bargello stitch. Will give you a complete color chart for the piece in May, as I've made more progress. You can't really see through the threads as in the pic!! Yikes!Plantation Sampler is so much fun to stitch. The froggies have left me, somewhat; at least the majority of them have fled!! I've still had to contend with a few of them on that border. I'm counting and recounting like an old fashioned cash register!! :P
It's shameful that I'm still stitching on this, isn't it?! The metallics mixing has slowed me up, I think. I'm trying to mix it up more, now, to speed up the progress. Have only stitched a bit on this to start catching up. It's difficult to see...just try to look closely.
I've been clearing out old CD's today...all day! It was amazing how many I have collected that I'd never really listened to. There's another swap online just like the paperback swap...it's a CD swap...check it out. So far I haven't found anything, but I didn't really have time to look today.
Have any of you been watching American Idol? I have to tell you I can't stand Adam. I can't even hear him singing! He just makes me cringe. Sorry to any fans he may have amongst us. I think he's creepy. Ugh!! I'm a fan of Chris and Danny. I think Danny will probably be left standing with Adam. What do you think? The little red-haired girl certainly has a great voice!!!
Other favorite tv programs:
How many of you saw "Gray Gardens?" OMGosh, it was brilliant. I just loved it. I could watch it again and again. Drew Barrymore was amazing, I think she really became the character. It was so much like the documentary, it was almost creepy! Jeanne Trippletorn played a good Jackie Kennedy...complete with a slight NY accent. I thought Jessica was the least real in the cast.
Must go....I've bored you to pieces!!!! Please leave me some answers and/or comments. It's always so much fun to hear from you, dear friends. I check my blog every day to see who's visited me!
