I’ve gone back to Carol (Salt Box Stitcher’s) list of youtube videos and started watching from the beginning. I think they started near the end of 2017. I’m up to about number 9 now.
Here’s the good news (for Vince): Most all of the Blackbird designs from that “era” are out of print and cannot be purchased. That doesn’t stop me from stopping the video with each chart she shows and trying to find it. I haven’t found an old one yet or, should I say . . I haven’t found one I’d buy. Every now and then there’s one on ebay and yesterday there was one for $150. Nope, not doing that.
Carol, and yes, I do feel like I’m on a first name basis with her now though she doesn’t have a clue that some crazy woman in Missouri (I almost wrote Texas) wants to make everything she makes or has made or thinks about making. Carol has no idea how much strife she is causing in my marriage. No . . it isn’t really Carol’s fault. It’s my own fault for wanting to buy everything she shows. I’m not buying everything but I am buying enough that I see Vince’s eyebrows shoot up every time the mail person delivers a package.
Here’s a funny story: This morning I knew I had a package coming from Kitten Stitcher. I saw the nice mail man (I like him) drive past our house going to the other house on our road. Vince was sitting at the dining room table doing some computer work and the blinds were open. I watched to see if Vince looked up. No. He hdn’t looked up. The mail man drove by, stopped at our box. By the time he was at our mail box,I thought I was safe and then . . I see the mail man walking down the driveway. Good grief. We didn’t have any big packages. I got up to go meet him. Vince said “Where are you going?” I said “To get the package the mail man is bringing.”
The mail man said “I thought I’d save you a trip to the mail box!” Hmmm . . don’t ever do that again! No. I didn’t say that but I thought it. I came back in and Vince said “What’s in the package?” . . like he didn’t know! I said . . just a few charts I ordered a while back (like Thursday but I didn’t say that). His eyebrows were up, his forehead was wrinkled. He wasn’t happy but he didn’t say anything.
I’ll take pictures of the new charts after while and post them so maybe some of you can order them and aggravate the heck out of your husbands! 🙂
