Running Out Of TARDIS Blue

My own fault. I had ordered only one skein of that special blue unaware of the fact that I needed two of them. As there were some other colours missing as well I made a new online order at my trusty cross stitch shop. Should be here in a couple of days. (I also ‘needed’ a piece of black Aida for a new and yet secret project of mine.)

I had been looking forward to this long weekend for a while. Another Friday and Monday off, my last two days left from last year. Focus was on cross stitch and I had lined up my current projects side by side to stitch whatever I felt like. Dave the Muse gave me some patterns for Modern Art of which I made one with the background still missing.

Then I began to work on the TARDIS part of my latest Tenth Doctor project. It’s a design from Stitcherydoo that traveled all the way from Down Under about two years ago. I started in November on 16 ct. white Aida using the suggested DMC threads. In my sleepy little hometown all they sell are Anchor and Rico floss so I had to mail order the DMC threads.

Stitch count is 158 x 165. I’ve now decided to complete the right side first after starting in the lower left hand corner because the stitched area will become a little stiff and it’s going to be easier to handle if I stitch from right to left.

I started with this on Friday.

What I made on the weekend

This afternoon I had an appointment in the city center. Afterwards I went for some more floss for the ‘black project’ mentioned above and another skein of dinosaur thread. Also, 30 percent off on Rico floss at the next shop, an offer I couldn’t resist as this meant 0.70 € per skein (approx. 50 p UK/0.78 $ US/1 $ AUS). 50 new and exciting colours jumped into my shopping basket in no time. 🙂

  1. Very impressive progress! I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds things jumping into my basket, particularly the ‘just in case’ kind which are reduced… I just bought an 8m roll of batting for 30% off, which makes it a massive bargain.

    • I love a little ‘just in case’ bargain. 🙂
      Jumping craft supplies are of the more harmless kind. Jumping chocolates are far more dangerous. 😉

      • Luckily I am able to resist those. My coeliac diet means that most kinds of chocolate are a bit hazardous. Now, cheeses, or mangos, or icecream, they’re notorious jumpers!
