No, this is not the same........

.......I had work to complete on the white stole and thankfully, yesterday, I managed to get it all done. The last linen collar/fabric protector I made I swore I would never do another. That tiny edge is all thread crochet---nothing fancy but it is proof that I am too old to be using things I can neither see nor feel! Yet, the collar calls for it, so I respond. The beads are tiny, the pearls a nuisance to match but it does look good. :-) The whole time I work with white fabric I live in absolute fear of dropping something on it or pricking my finger and getting blood in the fibers...ay yi yi.
I am hoping to deliver this today, get to the Post Office, get the oil changed in the poor Flame-Mobile, do a bit of grocery shopping and then come home and pile up in a heap. I have a few books I have been reading and would like to either finish them, or start another. And then there is still the mess in the studio that is out of control, and some ideas I'd like to tinker with in the wet studio.
And ironing. Yes, I still do lots of that.
So pick one dear readers---that's what I will be spending my day doing!
And by the way, has anyone had any issues with not being able to click on the photos of followers? I've had that for several days and am not sure if I need to further tinker with computer settings or if it is a Blogger issue. I have a new follower I would like to Welcome!
Normally I will do a link to their blog, but Bunny, I can't till I get this issue resolved! So enjoy, or put your blog title in a comment.
Now off for a busy day---wishing you a productive and inspiring Friday, with lots of good things and creativity!

That is really beautiful, Anne. And I know how you feel about working with white. I have that same fear of pricking myself with a needle and then getting blood on a plushie. "Here's your cute little plushie, don't mind the blood." I think not.
Have a fabulous weekend!

Hello Anne,

This piece is beautiful...I'm right there with you on that thread crochet..oh, how I used to love it, I'm like you..can't see it or feel it but when I decide that I must do it, I do..LOL

Blogger has been having hiccups on and off for months..I have several people that can't leave a comment at my blog and then all of a sudden they can! then they can't...crazy!

Thanks so much for your kind words about my'll be soooo nice to get this stuff finished..all the sawdust out of here and let the decorating begin!!!

As to the thread crochet.....I cannot believe I am actually thinking of another set of stoles that will require it.
I am certifiable.
And I don't think the new contact lens will help either!!! LOL!!!!!
