Well, this was my new start this week, but now it's gone away to be a UFO! Already!
It was a kit I bought earlier this year, (I purchased a few Lorri Birmingham's altogether). Now, as it's a kit, I expect it to have everything needed to complete the design, but maybe I'm wrong there. There was 5 lengths of Creme Silk floss by Needle Necessities (no idea where to buy more), 5 lengths of Hand Painted Silk, and 12 lenghts of pink DMC (plus beads, crystals and kreinik). Now the pink DMC is to make tassels only. I have used 2 lengths of the silk, and need to start a 3rd just for a few stitches in this part of the design. I can see already that there is no way there is enough to finish this as it is supposed to be, so now it's a UFO.
Now my thoughts are - I have no idea what I'd do with it if I finished it, so shall I not bother? Shall I just do one side, and make it into a small band sampler? All ideas greatly appreciated.

Look what I received from Vonna, she stitched me this gorgeous pinkeep, all stitched over one. It's stitched using an Anchor mulit coloured thread in shades of pink, orange and yellow- very summery. This was for the SBEBB Summer Quaker exchange. Vonna included Carrie's Creation threads and some Piecemakers needles, she must have known I've wanted to try these for sometime, having heard people rave about them.

Last week the computer started playing up, and would not stay connected to the WWW. So I'm now behind with my formus, my blog and reading blogs, and not sure that I'll catch up either. We've been trying to book a holiday, by looking on the internet, so you can imagine how infuriating it has been. We had several failed attempts to fix the problem, but fingers crossed we're finally there, and boy has there been a queue to use it. LOL.
I've got an exchange to show too. So hopefully tomorrow night I'll put that up.
