Special greetings to everybody from Buffalo who are experiencing the Great Canadian Winter
I have a loooot of new stuff and pics to show you !
First off all, I bought a box full of Anchor and DMC threads, because I wanted to start new projects that were not the kits i usually have.
So this is what it look liked at first :
Then I thought : Ok, maybe I should cry. Each skein took 10 min to roll. I had over 250 to roll.
So, after a few days ...
Again, the only thing i had in mind was : why I didn't bought this f*ckn little plastic sh*t to roll all this.
Yeah, lot of anger.
But then after a looong week of doing this, and no cross stitch at all (because the BF would have killed me if i let all this mess there and doing something else )
As you can see: Anchor on the left, DMC on the right. Yep Anchor have a better progression of color when compared to DMC.
DMC vs Anchor? Bof, almost the same thing. I don't prefer one or another. The two are great quality, the only difference is in the color. But I have not work with enough DMC thread to tell you any significant difference.
It's when you work with one of those two you realise Dimension has sh*tty China made thread.
And no, it's not over. I just don't ave enough plastic/carton cards to put my skeins on. Need to buy some. (At the back, you can see a specimen of the Probability course book in all it's splendor.. )
Oooook. But have you been working on something during all this time ?
Oh yes, I did !
But let me tell you something about university:
(Yes, I had a summer session. No beach, no fun. Study and study, and working(Because tuition fees))
Buuuuuuuut ... I did have time. Yeah !
My super lovely geisha, Elegance of the Orient had a lot of work done on it during summer.
(The reason i had no tan at the end of August)
(Aida 18ct, super long to do)
After working a lot of hours on my geisha I thought : Hey, why not buy MORE cross stitch, so i will have a lot of stuff in my stach, knowing I will never have enough time in my life to finish them anyway ?
Yeah, why not?
And this is how my credit card was used during september (after clearing my school bill )
Nice, eh ?
(The BF was soooooooo happy to see this in our postal. Yep *sarcasm*)
Pics of new WIP next post ! (⌒▽⌒)☆
