As many of you may know some of the Irina Garmashova charts are being retired on the 25th. I had just added Glamour back to my wish list this week, and even shown the finished piece to a friend of mine at work. When I saw that Glamour was one of the charts to be retired I was a little grieved since it is the last of my "I love them so much I must stitch that" charts on my list.
Can you imagine my delight and surprise when I woke up in the middle of the night with sinus allergies, all sneezy and icky and decided to check my e-mail to pass the time, only to find Glamour had been gifted to me?
Here is the beauty if you aren't familiar with this marvelous chart.
I can't thank Liz enough for sending me this. Really. Not only do I love the chart for itself I feel thrilled and blessed to have, in my hot little hands, every single chart that I have loved above all others.
And yes, I will start all three that I have been given that I haven't started yet, just as soon as I can get them all kitted up. I've never been the recipient of so much kindness and it truly humbles me how many generous thoughtful people there are in my life.
Alas, I was unable to stitch at all Thursday evening, and only a very little last night, due to a mild flare-up and some pain. I will post what little progress was made on I am Half Sick of Shadows just as soon as I remember to take a pic. Until then, Happy Stitching Weekend to everyone.
