I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

The 2017 List - Part 12

Today I have an almost-start to show you.

This is Blackwork Journey's Wandering Star design.
It was named after a song from the 1970 movie
"Paint Your Wagon."
I had ordered this design 
about a week ago, and I've spent
the time since wondering why I didn't receive it.
Then it dawned on me:
my Paypal account is under a different 
email address that I don't check too often.
It's sad when you get old and the mind goes...

I got the fabric cut and colors chosen.
They are not the recommended colors,
and my computer screen is making the
burnt orange a lot redder than it is IRL.
But I just didn't have the time to start it.
Tomorrow it will see its first stitches.

That's it for today.
Thanks for visiting!
See you tomorrow.

Blackwork always looks so delicate and delightful, i'm going to enjoy watching this one grow.

Great design. I loved Paint Your Wagon. I haven't thought of that movie in years. Thanks for the memory.
