Finished May 13th
Took 8 Days
Used 28ct Blue Evenweave
Threads are Threadworx 1090 and Needle Necessities 1611
Pattern from White Willow Stitching called Tribal Fire Helmet
It's done!!! I was able to get it all finished last night. I just love how the threads turned out. I'm glad I picked just a plain blue to do it on too. Now the focus is the helmet. Next week I'm going to finish it into a decorative pillow and next weekend I will give it to the new owners. We have this couple as friends. He is a fire fighter. We have really grown close over the past few years. When I saw this pattern I just knew I had to do it for them.
Yesterday was my birthday. 36 years old! I feel old yet I know age is just a number. I keep thinking back to my high school years and I remember just wanting to be 19. I don't know why I just thought that was a good age to be. Now I'm 36. I sure wish I could slow life down a bit. Anyway I did exactly what made me happy yesterday. I stitched and watched scary movies haha. Since I'm on Facebook I know it tells you when you sign in that it's someones birthday. Still I have over 90 people take a moment and say Happy Birthday! Each one meant the world. For dinner we went to this delicious Japanese restaurant where they make your food on your table. It was DELICIOUS. We ate way too much and I'm okay to never eat again but it was fantastic. Plus it's so much fun watching them make it. Jeremiah of course loved it. We had been there before but we don't go except about once a year so it was very nice. I was spoiled with some goodies when we got home. A new t-shirt. This cute decorative lizard that lights up. Some fun cards. A new little duffel bag for when we travel. I was spoiled rotten. No stash cause seriously I don't need any right now haha.
Now that I have finished the helmet I get to work on something else. My whole basket is yelling at me. Selkie says it's about time she come out to play. I missed completing my Mill Hill kit for last month so I need to do 2. They are both calling me. So I need to get off this computer and see what wins the fight.
