A Disaster and a Solution

Ok, maybe disaster is a bit dramatic, but it got your attention!!

The Disaster - You see, I was merrily stitching away on Enchanted Flute when the highlighter that I use to mark of my stitching ran out. Well the design is so full of confetti stitching that I didn't dare continue to stitch until I had another highlighter. It would have been asking for trouble to stitch on that without marking it. But what to do? I couldn't spend the evening without stitching.

The Solution - So I started Celtic Summer. Naturally. I mean, if I can't stitch on one BAP, I'll just start another. Can't say I got a lot done but it is a start.

(That's the top of the back of her skirt if you see what I mean!)

I am now going to do weekly rotations of the two. So today until next Wednesday is Enchanted Flute, then a week of Celtic Summer.
Oh, and I took Celtic Winter to be framed today. Gulp! HOW MUCH! If she doesn't look stunning when she comes back ..............

I am sure she will look fantastic when she comes back.

I have been umming and arrring over a new start but I have to be good I have too many BAP's already LOL.
Are you having her laced or glued? I am having to wait to have Spring framed haven't got that sort of cash at the moment and I have others that are still waiting, it might be cheaper to take a framers course!

Yay a new start! I enjoy highlighting even when I don't really need to!

It's so expensive for framing, isn't it?

great start!

LOL! Someone has a good sense of humour ;o) I still can't believe the stitching that is involved with the HAED. Starting CS will be a nice break for you.

OH! I can't wait to see Celtic Winter when she comes back!

Now that is the best solution to 'no marker' that I have ever seen. Good on you!! And I'm definitely going to remember this one next time my marker runs empty.

I like that philosophy- if you can't stitch one, start another!

A great excuse for a 'new start'!
