July went by like a whirl! But I did get caught up on the Round Robin samplers I had. I finished the final two samplers in my round of the Northwest Sampler Guild. Now I am expecting 3 more samplers from the EGA Round Robin, but one lady is moving and at least 1 sampler (not mine) got packed! So not sure when I'll see that one.
Here is what else has been happening-
New Start-Laura Perin Red White & Blue Panel
I'm stitching it upside down right now :)
Finish #1-With Thy Needle & Thread Stars & Stripes
Finish #2 Just Nan Hop
Finish #3 Jeannette Douglas Bird Box. The finished mini biscornu is in the box-top left. The mini pincushions are at the bottom.
New Stash-Gorgeous sturdy Thread Catcher from Curry Bungalow on Etsy
Back from the Finisher-Gay Ann Rogers Samples
I included a photo of the back so you could see the little stand that my finisher uses.
Framed by DH with a standard 5 x 7 frame in my stash-Birds of a Feather Land That I Love
Now it is time for At Willow Tree Pond's Believe It or Not--
Do you like my Nancy Cucci Amazing Greys? I didn't list it as a finish, because it isn't.
One recent night I was busy listing consignment items on ebay, got distracted and started surfing around. I saw a listing with no picture and the description said "GREY GEOMETRIC BOXES" And Nancy Cucci immediately came to mind and I clicked on the auction. There was a photo on the auction page and yes, it was exactly what I thought--but not the kit. It was the finished project! And it was ---Buy It Now for $42!! My hand was shaking. I am not kidding!
Not only was it a finished Amazing Greys, but when I got it , the stitching is beautifully done. Laid properly, just wonderful! The seller definitely didn't know what she/he had. Do you think the stitcher passed away? I mean, what else would allow such a thing to happen???
Now, who else has a bizarre story about ebay (or anywhere else for that matter)?
