I have added Lisa Krause's game boards to the Needlepoint tool time web site. They are so unique and rarely seen in Needlepoint stores. Eventually there will be a slide show on the web site. I have been forced to use a new Slide show provider. It's a challenge! Look for the game boards under "new items". We have had 3 gorgeous cool days in Palm Desert this week. They are predicting more 90+ degree weather for next week. Halloween is usually our summer weather cut off. Can hardly wait!

I arrived home one evening exhausted & aching. I decided a cocktail was in order. I mixed a Blood Orange Martini using my home made Lemonchello. It was so good that I chugged it down and mixed another. I knocked the glass off the end table onto the tile floor. My plastic PFOS stitch bag was in it's path. Unfortunately, I hadn't zipped it close. The white canvas margin of the Tic Tac Toe Board is now stained pink. I choose to think that it didn't get on the design. My threads were all in Floss-aways. Every Floss-Away bag was sticky but the threads were safe. Dual scissor case, Thread Zap and inside of bag had to be washed. I will start zipping the bag when I put my stitching away. I will try to drink slowly or limit myself to one drink.

While at the PFOS retreat, I pulled fibers for my Big Horn Sheep & the Tic Tac Toe Board. It was the Tic Tac Toe Board that I chose to work on. I chose 18 different grass green threads. Of course, I get home and need another. I went to my stash and found 18 differeent grass green choices. Now I am somewhere between confused and overwhelmed. I'm also impressed with my stash.
