i found the silver lining!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

omg. omg. omg. OMG. OMG. OH. MY. GOSH. 

the lns found my stocking and ornament on saturday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

somehow the stocking and water meter ornament were in a separate box and were misplaced until saturday when they were moving some things around and presto! i cannot believe my good luck and have to thank all of you sweet friends and readers for your happy thoughts and prayers that you sent my way. i am SOOOOO relieved that i don't have to stitch this again yippee! 




instead of sending it off to be finished right away, i'm going to remove the bead garland at the bottom and do some experimenting with sundance sparkles instead. that was really the only area i was having second thoughts on. the water meter ornament will be sent to the finisher as is. 

i am so happy and so excited and so completely overcome with all human emotions. this has been a wild rollercoaster of a journey, but if anything, it cemented the fact that i freakin' LOVE needlepoint!

no deja vu stitching this summer! now what do i do with the canvas i just got in the mail??????



best. weekend. ever.

  5. Hurrah!!! What great news! Not only do you get to spend your stitching time on other projects, but Needlepoint Nation is not on the hunt for the finishing bandit.

  6. Fabulous!! This is wonderful news. It's so easy for things to be misplaced and so hard to find them.

  10. Katherine, I love reading your blog but have never commented before. However, I must comment on this -- hallelujah! I couldn't believe this had happened to you when I read your earlier posts about it. I am SO glad that the stocking is right back where it belongs now! Have a wonderful week!
