After my son pulled the TV out of the box is when I realized the old TV stand was not going to work. That meant checking on line to see what local business had a suitable size stand for the 40" TV and then call to see if they had one in stock. Luckily Big Lots had one and asked them to take it to the register that someone was on their way to get it.
Ben wanted to be right in the middle of all the activity and why there WAS chaos in the house. I tried to block his entry into a part of the living room by propping up the TV box against a rug frame but bully boy shoved his way thru a few times. He'd step on the stand framing clanking them together, kicked the screws and just couldn't understand what the big deal was for me insisting his staying away. Thankfully all is good now and calm has restored to our abode.
So now to show an update of my grandson's Christmas gift ~ his favorite Soccer Team logo from Barcelona.
I can see now the "E" in Barcelona needs to be downsized. And, the dark burgundy stripes need to be hooked a little closer so the foundation doesn't show.
**So this is a lesson to be learned...no matter if you follow a hooking rhythm of every three holes for a certain size, it may not work depending on the structure of the wool strip. Those strips were rather felted and hard. So I will have to pull out the strips and hook it like a 3, 3, 2, 3, 3, 2, and see how it looks.
Have a great evening. The rain will begin tonight but I have a great new HDTV to keep me entertained. Now I can watch Jamie of Outlander in High density and all his glory. AHHHHH.
