Pi day

Happy Pi Day!

It snowed.  Not much but a little and the temps have dropped.  It seems to be hit and miss.

On the other hand, my in-laws, and 3 of the nieces and nephew are being hit hard.

SAL update

It's that time again.   Some progress has been made despite my cold and a few days of not touching anything.  Here gores:

Very wrinkled
some prorgress

Also very wrinkled
nearly done

Ready for beads!
The whiskers won't be backstitched until the beads are done.
Don't want the beads hiding the whiskers.
Most of the face is a light purple/lavender in reality.
The dark pink is really more magenta.

Anyhow, go look at the rest of the group and enjoy their 
delightful WIPs.

Behind a bit.  My cold seems to getting worse, not better.  I has stopped sneezing last week but now it's back again.  I'm ready for spring.

Here's an update on the pink cat as of 2-28-2018

DMC is discontinuing their memory thread. Oh, NO! What to do!!?!  Fortunately, Kreinik has you covered—use their Hot Wire instead.  Hot Wire is size 16 Kreinik braid with wire in the middle so it is bendable.  This nifty article has a conversion chart between DMC's colors and Kreinik's.  They even tell you how to make your own color in memory thread using a regular size 16 braid.

By the way, Kreinik now calls Hot Wire by Wired Braid instead, which is more descriptive, I guess.

Back from vacation.  It was so wonderful to soak up some sunshine and warm weather.  Evidently TSA didn't confiscate everything in the suitcase.  The temps are in the 60's today with a partly cloudy sky.  Intermittent rain.  I can deal with that.

I did do some stitching while gone, even ran into some great stitchers from Texas, and we actually know some of the same people.  How amazing was that.

Here's what I did while gone.

what it will look like first

After the vacation.

Enjoy your Tuesday that feels like Monday!
