Day 34

I'm feeling a bit better today than yesterday.  I didn't stay on plan yesterday because the kids made supper and I couldn't tell them I didn't want to eat any.  I ate turkey and rice with a little gravy so it wasn't that bad.  I'm feeling a little anxious, but I'm afraid any medication will put me to sleep because I didn't get much sleep last night.

I'm still waiting to hear from Silkweaver about my fabric.  I'm about half done with the alpaca and I picked out a sloth to do if I'm still waiting for my fabric in the next few days - if we go into the city to get the floss.  I've been trying to plan how I'm going to do Titania - and the rest of the fairies - and I've decided I may have to grid the whole thing before I start stitching.  I've never done that before so I'm not really sure about it.  I didn't have a problem with counting before I needed glasses, but I'm having trouble now.

I'm still waiting for the kids to wake up.  They stayed up pretty much all night playing a video game.  I stayed up most of the night so I'm still pretty sleepy.  My daughter's boyfriend was supposed to leave Sunday and then he was supposed to leave yesterday.  I'm pretty sure he's leave today.

Update: Silkweaver is now saying that it will be next week before my fabric is shipped so I said to heck with it - I'm going to start stitching Teresa Wentzler's Tempest.


  1. Unfortunately that is Silkweaver's M O. I stopped buying from them years ago, I even once had a long disortation on my blog about their service. If you can afford to, buy another piece of fabric from 123stitch, or Polstitches, or Sunny Dyes, or Under the Sea fabrics. You will most likely have it in your hands before the Silkweaver arrives.

    Are you sure that your daughter's bf hasn't moved in, lol.

    1. Thanks Tracy! I've looked at other dyers' fabrics and I really wanted the one from Silkweaver for Titania. I guess I'll try to wait it out. I may end up ordering from somewhere else, though.

      I'm not sure about my daughter's boyfriend. He's still here... :D
