My Eye Candy excited!!!!!!!!

First this came in the mail!!!!!!
Here's the patient, outside roaming around in the snow that is falling hard! This camera doesn't show the flakes for some reason but it's sticking and fast. He is almost back to normal now. Has his postop appt tomorrow. We may be sledding in for it with my labcoat on too...WHEEEEE....LOL

I got the whim to play with some material I got at the quilt shop, looks like linen, probably muslin, but stitches well 2 over 1. I tried 1 over 1, 2 over 2. The muslin is a cameo pink which I love.

I picked up this pattern out of my stitching basket and got some CC Joshua Green and tried a letter to see what would show.

Most likely I will stitch in the original colors but just trying a pink fabric with other colors for a while.

Has anyone ever stitched over this fabric before?

Here's the status on my Valentine seeds. Burning love is not growing......LOL Really......but the Strawberries are. If they are dependent on sun, then that's something we rarely see anymore around here......but I want to get my Burning Love to start growing..........maybe some Levitra.

Forget-me-nots are growing wildly.

I'm off today and it's a good day off too! It's snowing heavy outside and it was supposed to be rain. It's sticking too. I'm worried how I'm going to get to work tomorrow as the weather predicted this to get worse during the night. We already have about 1 inch in 1 hour here.

Bodyguard went to the mailbox and I opened this lovely that I ordered last week. The DMC swatch...actual threads. Man, oh man, I'm so thrilled to have this palette to work with.


This is almost as fun as my first box of 64 Crayola crayons! :0


  1. Love, love, LOVE the DMC card. I was like a little kid in a candy store when mine came, so I know exactly how you feel!

    Enjoy! :-)

  2. It's so good to see your BG up and around!

    I love that new start - that fabric looks great and stitching one over two (or is it two over one) - can't wait ot see more of it finished!

    The DMC card is great - I may have to hunt one of those down for myself - it's nice being able to see all of the colors!

    Stay safe and warm - the snow is supposed to start here tomorrow evening and last until Saturday evening!

  3. I've been searching for a source for the card....did you get it from DMC? I've found it in the past but now that I'm ready to order, Google is not cooperating. Thanks!

  4. First, I missed your last post about Spam. I really hate to admit it, but I love a friend Spam sandwich with mustard! Be still my heart. Luckily, it's a once a year thing otherwise my heart would be still! LOL

    I just can't get over the weather you're having there Jen. You could gladly send it up this way - we have barely had any snow, and even though it's cold, it almost doesn't seem like winter.

    And floss card, lovely floss card. It is definitely eye candy and makes for picking out flosses so much easier!! Love your new start too, but I don't have any idea what that fabric would be.

  5. I absolutely can understand your happy dance. I LOVE my card too.

  6. I'm glad the BG is doing well. Your fabric looks lovely. I have a DMC floss card with the actual floss and just love it - wouldn't trade it!

  7. Linda,
    I got the card on Ebay. I looked a while.
    After doing alot of searching online, I found out that DMC quit making the actual thread card in 2008, they only sell the laminated colored cards.
    So, if you Google it or look on EBAY, make sure it says actual threads. They are few and far between there and some sellers have too much on their cards but I thought I did pretty good.

    Good luck with EBAY!

    Yep, Deb we are having some cold weather here this winter and gray, oh, has it been gray almost every day since.......September.


  8. I also purchased the little pots from Target. Going to plant with grandchildren and watch grow.. I hope they grow... lol
