I've enjoyed everyone's recent comments. Gloria, you might as well give up; I ain't giving up my stitching chair. Rachel, I had fun thinking about what a biscuit joiner might look like if it wasn't a tool. ☺ Sharon, I grew up around job-sites, too, although my dad was an HVAC sub-contractor. I told Emma that she has blog fans. She was impressed and promptly asked for a dog biscuit.
While DH has been working on UBSU drawers and doors in the evenings, I've been stitching on the WIP for my parents' 50th anniversary. It's a kit from Vervaco. Normally, I'm not a kit stitcher. But I liked this pattern and decided to go for it as Vervaco has a good reputation for quality kits (and I couldn't find the pattern in anything other than as a kit).
It came with some rather boring ivory Aida fabric, so I changed it out to some linen I had in an "Attic Lace" color. And as I was not thinking things through, I hope I don't run out of floss as I changed from 18 count Aida to 32 count linen. Dummy. *crossing fingers*
The pattern is in sepia tones and is a close up of a man's and woman' hands clasping. I thought I ought to tell you that as you can't tell anything from what I've stitched so far.
