Greetings fellow stitchers, hope it's been a good week for all. I finished a biscornu that I was making for the Friendly Stitchers Group Spring exchange. I didn't like the way it turned out. The linen was too drab and it was too quirky to share, so I am keeping it and working on another. Here is a pic of it. This is a freebie I got some where, maybe from the Free Patterns web site.
And last but not least, here is a pic of the wonderful scented flosses I have been pining about for years. DMC put these out several years ago but they never made it to the states. Probably due to some inane law against non-edible products smelling edible....our government's ever present concern for it's stupid citizenry's inability to differentiate the actual from not. Example - Some kindergartener was expelled from school for playing with a piece of pizza shaped like a hand pistol. Anyhow...I digress...here is the pic. Michelle AKA Mouse from the Friendly Stitchers group sent me these. She sent a pack of pink, blue and white and free collection of designs. Just wonderful! As you work with the thread, the scent is released. The pink smells like roses, blue like lavender and white like lily-of-the-valley. I am so psyched!!! I had to admit, that I felt compelled to chew on the blue one...JUST KIDDING!!!I hate paternalism.
Thank you Mouse! Mwah,mwah!
