My 100th Post! Lol!

Yes it's my 100th post since I started blogging! I honestly didn't think I'd keep up so well with this blog but the people who read it and the comments I receive make it so easy to do and, of course, I have plenty of stitching on the go to blog about! Lol!

No stitching updates today as my week on HAED Winter isn't up yet. Still have this evening's stint to do but so far this week I've done 30 rows on page 3 so am quite happy. I did manage a little bit on HAED Guardian this week too but still not enough for a WIP pic. You may have to wait for that until I've finished page 1!

Speaking of HAED Caron Vinson's artwork isn't going to be retired from there now:) That announcement has left many of us on the HAED BB very happy so now I won't be buying some of her charts last minute!

I decided to email Yvonne at Papillon Creations the other day about the problems I had with the chart and floss usage. Well I received a lovely email back saying that the floss usage on the chart is for use with one strand but it isn't stated on the chart so Yvonne is going to change that. So that explains why I ran out of floss! Next problem we had was trying to work out the overlap on the chart. Yvonne could not find it on hers and asked me to send more details so I did. Lol! She still couldn't find it so we were both thinking we weren't looking at it properly! We finally worked out that I must have an older version of the chart and as an apology for the problems I'd had she sent me Eightsome Reel which is lovely. I thought that was such a kind gesture.

I'm hoping to get my order from Mary Kathryn this week. It was posted on 1st May so I hope the postal service haven't lost it. Also waiting on Blackbird Designs Quaker Garden from Wyndham Needleworks. I haven't heard if it's been posted or not so have emailed them for an update. I know I need more stash like a need a hole in my head but, hey, it's my hobby! Lol!


Happy Mother's Day to all the ladies who celebrate it today. We Mum's in the UK celebrated back in March!

Congratulations on reaching your century Sally.
Glad you contacted Papillon I would imagine that most designers would want to know if there was an error lol, even if part of it was your own fault at least if gave her chance to explaine. Also you have another lovely chart for your trouble.

Contacting Papillon was a great idea and it's nice to know that she was so helpful. I have to agree, sending you Eightsome Reel is a very kind gesture indeed! :)

Congratulations on your 100th post, that's quite an accomplishment.

That's great that Yvonne was so willing to work with you on straightening out the different issues you had, and how sweet of her to send you the additional pattern. Looking forward to seeing lots of progress pictures when you get time.
