PATIENCE, GRASS-HOPPA


I used to tease Aunt Chrissy all the time about her lack of patience. Turns out that she is actually the most patient person I know. (Especially since she has to deal with moi and moi d-o-g.)

I've started Laura J. Perin's Stained Glass Windows in a lovely pink/chocolate colorway, but all I have to show for a Sunday's worth of stitching is 4 3/4 block outlines. I'm driving myself nutso with the "I hope these colors will look OK" and "Why can't I stitch the outline of a square without having a fizzy tit about it?" and "What the heck happened that Adrienne and Lisa hate each other?".

So sometime in the year a billion and seventeen we should see this one finished.

But if anybody knows the answer to the Adrienne/Lisa conundrum, I'd love to hear it.

  3. I always get scared when I pick my own colors out for a project. I'm almost always concerned for no reason. Almost always. But I think your choices look great! I love pink and chocolate brown together. So pretty.

  4. Ok- who in Hades are Adrienne and Lisa? I'm outta the loop!

    My grandmother made me a sweater and told me she was knitting it using pink and brown yarns. I thought 'Yikes- don't think I'm going to like that'. Well, guess again. Those colors look very pretty together. Bet you'll love it!

  5. I think what started it all was Adrienne was offended that Lisa didn't use the palm in Las Vegas(her hotel) for pandora's bachelorette party instead they went to Planet Hollywood (the evil competition). Then Lisa also called her new shoe line the Maloof Hoof, adrienne didn't care for it either and then Lisa also tweeted one day and called adrienne's dog jackpot, crackpot. Then Lisa was offended because a person she employees (the chef) hates lisa and was openly talking about her on tv and she couldn't believe that she would employee someone that would talk about her friends that way. I think that is the gist, I am sure there is more drama

  7. I was wondering how long it would take you to pick this one up! I need to go ahead and get the chart ordered, maybe as a birthday gift to myself. I'm thinking about the red colorway she's picked. One can't have too much red.

  8. I so want that chart. *sigh* If only I had unlimited budget!

    Your colorway will look beautiful! I want to do it in purples like in the series from Needlepoint Now.

  9. Adrienne seemed slightly snarky last night. Maybe she was told to get a little more controversial or she would be off the show, like Camille! (and why am I hooked on these shows, anyway?)
