WARNING! PAY ATTENTION TO THIS ADVICE!
Never go to the supermarket 4 hours before the Super Bowl even if you just need a "fresh" Rotisserie chicken for your princess dog!!! It was worse than the day before Thanksgiving!!!
Now you can guess where I just returned from. NOT a needlepoint Super Bowl Sunday sale :(
Seriously, I also learned something else today. Remember that a stitch guide is just a guide, not gospel truth. This is especially so when stitching the firecrackers. I've had to do a few changes along the way...AND THAT'S OK.
The stitch guide called for the strings to be done in #12 Kreinik but that was too heavy for my taste so I switched it to #8. I also changed the colors of the strings...those balls at the end will be sequins.
And so I hope to finish this while cheering on the Denver Broncos in 3 hours...can't wait for the animal ads.
Have a great week,
