Despite the best efforts (and they were quite grand) and Marty Brodeur, I get a parade today! Yes, my very first downtown, championship parade! Yahoo Kings!!!!!!! I am wiggling with excitement (though I will admit I'm about to go downstairs and find the guy with the honking-horn-of-celebration and throttle him-- what if he keeps this up for the next hour and 20 minutes until the parade starts????). There are little packs and black and silver (and sometimes, depending on the vintage of fan, purple) wandering the streets in preparation.
I'll be back with parade notes later... and pics, well, I hope I'll have some worthy pics. It'll be hard, what with me wiggling with this much excitement. tee heee
On more pedestrian fronts I've been pseudo busy. I seem to spend a lot more time staring at stitching than actually doing it. But for what it's worth I have made bits of progress-- and I could use your help on a couple things--
I've gotten a couple more motifs in on my Quaker a la Six Mains--
So now I've gotten this much done --
Nope, I really don't know why I skipped over what gap on the left. I seem to remember the corner seemed more essential. I'm sure it was a "great idea" at the time.
Here's where I could use some help --
Because I went and changed all the colors (dang me) the color that the note-so-swirly lines surrounding the stars and house don't work anymore. Should I go with a peachy tan to mimic what they should have been and yet still go with the house or with a minty light green? Oh, you think it might be more helpful if I had bothered to include some options with the pic? Well, yes, it would have been, but did I mention being all wiggly over the parade in.... 1 hour and 7 minutes?
One last bit of progress-- Brittercup's Christmas pup --
I have no idea why this seems to be taking so long. I did the dog in one short evening. Somehow I stalled out when I got to thinking Fuzzy Stuff would be the perfect hat/stocking edging. Oh well.
All the best to all of you -- possibly I'll see you at the parade..... sorry Marty-- please don't retire, you really are remarkable.
