Last week, between the car issues (It is finally in the shop, the damage estimate went up to more than $5000, and I should have it back May 9.), selling the fifth wheel (to my niece for her half-brother who is autistic and lives in Houston - sayonara, adios, thanks for all the fish.), babysitting (which is now over), and a few other minor details, I didn't get a lot of time to stitch. I did this much (the lettering) in two sessions of watching a super hero show with my elder child. Better than nothing!
I've been in touch with Myfanwy, who dyes the Sassa Lynne threads. She and her husband have both been sick a lot the last year, but she does have a few fine perles, in small amounts. Anyone interested in finding out exactly what, with the purpose of buying some? It's been about 7 years since I did the last buying. Can that be true? But yes, it is! Maybe even 8.
