One of the projects that isn’t even on my 2022 list to get started but will definitely be on my 2023 list is Huckleberry Farm by The Blue Flower. I don’t remember when I bought this chart . . not long ago but definitely before Thanksgiving. Sheri showed it on her last flosstube (starting about 7:19). Seeing hers . . it’s so pretty . . made me want to start it now, it’s not on my 2022 list! When I first got the chart, I had pulled a bit of the floss for it but not all. I dug it out to at least get all the floss ready. I had to make two floss substitutions, though I know I have the floss and I’ll be on the lookout for those so when I do come across them, I’ll know to put them with this chart.
It seems like so much of my linen is tan or yellow so I may have to make some adjustments to my floss. I don’t put linen in my kits because I don’t have enough to spare. Floss . . that’s coming out my ears but I’ll be doing good to not run out of 40 count linen by the end of this year. I have plenty of 36 count so I’ll be fine.
Don’t you love my business card floss tags with Chad’s old truck and Addie in the driver’s seat.
Speaking of the old truck, Chad had ordered new tires for it and he’s finally back to being off work on Friday so his plan was to take the truck in on Friday and have the new tires put on. But, there was ice on the roads and DOT had salted the roads so he didn’t want to get the old truck out so he took all four tires off, took them to the tire shop, had the new tires mounted, brought them home and “installed” them himself. Poor Chad. It makes me so happy to see him really caring about taking care of the old truck.
Look at how he has all his tools stack on that shelf under the window. I don’t even know what all those things are but everything has to be in its spot . . all the time . . for Chad. I know he gets so frustrated with me and all my clutter.
