Well....we are back to work. No sand and sun for Barb and me today. We've had lots of rain. My grass is growing and everything here is GREEN.
We got back late Sunday night. As Barb drove I stitched on my Beatrix Potter sampler. (You can see a finished one done by Siobhan if you click on the sampler name.) I was able to get about 4 motifs done in the car. It's starting to look like I might just finish this sampler in my lifetime. Click here for a SAL. (They are full ...but it's still fun to look at everyone's work.)
As we drove through St. Louis I happened to look up and noticed that we were on Hwy. 21. I said, "Barb I think we need Hwy 64 not 21."
Barb replied, "Well, this is a short cut."
"Are you that familiar with this area of St. Louis?" I asked.
"Oh, yes." replied Barb.
As we turned into the parking area of an Antique Mall I realized what kind of "short cut" she meant. (She's a very bad girl!!!) Two hours later we were back on the "right" road. I can't take my eyes off the road if she's driving.
We have shipped out the next Loose feather pattern to the distributors. Thought you might want a sneak peak of the cover. It will be in your local shop sometime in the next two weeks.
Also I need to let you know about a correction needed on our May Stocking pattern.
The Lily of the Valley needs a color correction.
I have reversed the symbols for Snowball and Shaker White.
Snowball should be an open circle.
Shaker White should be a solid half circle.
When you look at the picture of the stocking you will note that the darker color (Shaker White) is on the bottom portion of the small bell flower. The lighter color will be on top of the small bell flower. The random motifs in the stocking are the lighter Snowball color too.
I'm very sorry for the error! We missed this one in the proofing of the pattern.
