Good morning! We're in the midst of a warm spell here in the Richmond area and back to some walking. Sunday Rich and I did some clean-up along a stretch of road that abuts our local state park. It was a beautiful morning though a little "hairy" as cars rushed by. One lady slowed down and yelled "thank you" out her window and that made our day! Thankfully, we aren't supposed to pick up cigarette butts (of which there was a ton) and I did my own little survey and found that McDonald's customers seem to be the biggest "litterers" followed by beer drinkers....sad! Here we are in our "can't miss us" vests!!!
I finished the alphabet on Celtic Banner and to give a little perspective, it's 13 inches long. I'll be putting this aside for awhile as I'm waiting on the fibers for the border. I want to get that in place before I do anymore stitching because it'll be a good reference point for the interior section and hopefully lessen any miscounting.
I recently joined a FB page that talks about cross stitch storage and am seeing lots of good ideas. I thought I'd share how I store my DMC threads. I had seen this idea eons ago and rushed right out and bought the Plano fishing tackle box; it has worked wonderfully over the years. I wrap and store the DMC floss in the 3 drawers along with some Kreinik metallics in the bottom drawer. I keep my balls of perle cotton in the top section.
I hope you're having some nice weather where you are and have some free time to put in a stitch...or two. Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship.
