As I finished up the cart on DE I realized it was kinda small for what I was wanting. (I'd calculated the size of the finished product at 36, and that's what I'd settled upon.) Turns out that tightly-woven 36 count linen was actually 40 after all--even though the tag it came with ID'ed it as 36 and I ordered 36, lol! I don't mind in the end--it's nice linen and now I have an excuse to re-stitch in 32 count!
The plan is to make the first one, which is only cat, jack, and cart into a needle keep of some sort, so here's the re-start! I couldn't get a decent pic, so here are 3 sub-par ones which will hopefully serve.
Stewebs in again for size comparison with the last iteration.
Colours are better in this shot.
One other deja-vu event this week: Again, I ordered from Besem Soaps, and since I talked a friend into trying it with me, the order was for 6 large soaps. Last week's order was 6 small soaps. 0_o Spooky. They've arrived and are heavenly. Last time I recommended the Ultimate and Anise variety for their awesome effects. This week I'll plug the Pink Grapefruit (nice for shaving) and Old Hippie for no other reason than their heavenly scents. There's no love lost between me and anything even remotely "hippie", and I can't abide the reek of unadulterated patchouli oil, but this stuff smells great. Treat yourself to some Real Soap. The Rustic Pine (or Rusty Pine as my friend mis-typed in the chat), Cinnamon Spice and new Granola are just the thing for a case of "Fall Longing" induced by Summer's heat!
So, now I'm off to season the meat for tonight's grilling at a friends and I must also chart-up the signature which I'm putting below the grass on this piece. Friends, I've already been procrastinating doing this for too long. If I still haven't done this by next week please come after me with the wet noodle; or whatever effectual motivator you can devise!
