|Before this weekend|
I worked on the Penguin Family, but when I got home I was quite devastated to discover that somehow the DMC white had changed drastically between now and the last time I bought the floss.
Who would have thought that white could be so varied? I made a trip to JoAnn's today to see if there was a different white. I was contemplating tearing out several hundred stitches if only I could find one that matched the original white but to no avail. The color difference seems even more obvious to me from further away.
I am now forlornly trying to decide whether to even finish this project. I am more than halfway through this 15,000 stitch pattern and can't count the hours I've put in. Maybe no one will notice? Ah such a false hope - if it wasn't a big deal, Jack would have told me not to worry about it instead of suggesting I look for matching thread.

While we were in Frankenmuth we stopped at Hobby Lobby and I found some 25 count white linen. I now have some evenweave and linen both so I can figure out which one I like better. Now I just have to pick two HAED projects, one for each type of fabric.
When I got home, there was a nice surprise from my mom - she had sent us an anniversary card and birthday card for me. My mom does rubber stamping, so every card she sends is handmade by either her or a friend.
Aren't they pretty? I stuck them up on my mantle.
