I still continue working on “The Beatitudes” from My Big Toe Designs and have at least reached the bottom. I am safe in the knowledge that I have reached the bottom without running out of fabric. I am however running low on one of the colours – this is the second time on this piece that I’ve had to order a “top-up” as I have misjudged how much I needed.
The problem is in part the fact that I am working in DMC threads. For some reason I have still yet to understand, DMC doesnt sell through Bricks and Mortar shops – you can only buy it online. This means that when I run low or out of a shade, rather than nipping down the shops like I can with Anchor threads I need to order online, pay P&P…..and wait.
So I ordered some more skeins this morning. Hopefully they will turn up before I run out completely. I have perhaps a line of heavy lettering in this one colour, plus finishing off the border.
And I was proud of myself – I didnt order anything else off the site! I already have at least 2 other charts (and 5 wips) sitting there ready to go, and I really need to be trying something different out!
