The Camera Saga

I promise I have pictures of projects...but they are trapped on the camera. I haven't been able to find the cord to connect the camera to the computer. Today I found it!!! Of course the camera is MIA. Some days I just can't win.

Up date on stitching. I have been working on Chatelaine Mini-Mandala Mystery 1 and I am almost finished with the second part. I have taken some lovely pictures of it...

DMC Scare: I normally don't kit anything up until I am ready to work on it. Hence my stash is full of lovely charts and not much else. Well due to the DMC scare I "flossed" 25 projects. Most of them are TWs since they are hardest ones to convert to Anchor if the worst happens and DMC actually folds in 6 months. This whole DMC floss has been a total nightmare and it made me realize just how vunerable my stash is to the loss of key stitching industry players. On a side note flossed when you kit up a project with only the basic flosses .(I don't know if this is an actual stitching term. I just made it up to describe the lack of completely kitting up a project)

Shameless Plug: check out It is a humerous blog about one library workers saga at a large library. He is a gamer, comic book geek, and fanatasy fan. It shows but in an awesome way. Make sure you check out the links in the text.

I resisted the floss binge because I have almost two sets of DMC. DH told me to go for it, but with him out of work, I couldn't do it.

Thanks for the link. The things you mentioned are all things I'm interested if he only cross stitched.

Looking forward to the pictures! I know how it is when the camera walks off.
Quick question...are you still doing the Project challenge? If you don't want to answer here, you can email me at jayderose @ gmail. com.

I deleted my first comment because I have since found the press release from DMC regarding their business troubles. Yikes! Good thing that I have a good sized stash!
