Worked a tad more on Mr. Cotton Tail, a Brenda Gervais design, and think he will be ready to display and enjoy before Easter. Am also hoping he will be the incentive for me to clean up wool dust bunnies.
All of the flowers, stems, jacket, backpack, grass, and most of the border have been selected from my worm baggies. I did cut the tan check for the bunny and some primitive black to go with the other black leftovers. But hey, I use a LOT of primitive black since that is my 'go to' background since it really makes colors pop.
Oh, I forgot to mention the dimensions of my Mr. Cotton Tail is 14" x 14". Some time ago when this needle punch pattern was purchased from With Thy Needle and Thread I asked if there was permission to enlarge her NP designs and hook them and was given permission. Sometimes you ask a designer and they say no so I leave those designs alone since there's already so much eye candy out there to enjoy and hook.
AND..... guess what!!!!!!! There will not be another 'panic attack' with nothing on my frame when he is done. I've already enlarged and drawn out an antique adaptation which is ready to throw on the frame in a millisecond. Will share that in a future post.
Lately I've had a few new gals write me with typical newbie questions which ALL of US had when we began. Just to let you newbie readers know, it is okay for you to write me and I'll try to help.
I'm not claiming to be an expert and will only give you my thoughts based on my experience. You could ask 10 seasoned hookers the same question and you may get a few same but also some different answers. Frankly I learn something new each time I'm around hookers and going to camps. We are never done learning but know too it is a struggle when newbies start out..... I WAS A NEWBIE TOO.
Had the HVAC guy here today AGAIN. for the new furnace which also had to have a new blower installed...remember that? Something came loose in the new blower so it sounded like a lid on a pot of boiling water flopping up and down. Yes, had heat but could not sleep last night because of the racket.
I'd just gone to bed when the furnace came on; there was no TV playing, only heat. Ben went wacko barking since he thought someone was trying to break into the house. Knowing what it was I coaxed him into the bedroom and closed the door. Even then, each time the blower came on for the furnace I could hear it in the bedroom the other end of the house.
Uh, you do remember me saying this was my NEW FURNACE, right? The one which needed a new blower installed after only 3 weeks old? And now this issue. Is the word LEMON coming to mind?
Hope everyone has a great evening and my hope for me is that I get a great night's sleep and no more issues with a new paid for furnace.
