Canvas for Adoption...Again!

**Pending: This now has a new home**

A couple of months ago, I posted here that my co-worker was moving and she hoisted this lovely canvas on me with the hopes I would find it a good home. I don't needlepoint whatsoever and I really have enough issues stitching what I want to stitch with the occasional knitted or crochet something here or there.

Someone told me that they were interested in the canvas but after chasing them down for over a month now, I give up. It shouldn't be that hard for me to practically give something away. All I ask is postage for a huge canvas, stretcher bars and threads. Honestly, this is a bargain! Shipping tube/postage within the US would cost just under $13. But I'd be willing to send this anywhere provided the postage is paid for.

Here are a couple of photos to refresh your memory.


I know most of my readers are cross stitchers like me and not really needlepointers but if you have needlepointer friends, please direct them to the blog and have them take a look at the photos. All they need to do is pay me for postage. It's really that easy. Why this is still sitting in my closet is beyond me!

And to whine for a moment...I am sad to see the weekend end. Having 3 days off was fab but it ended on a sad note. Today would have been me and *the boy's* anniversary. Despite moving on, little things like special dates hang me up. And despite it being a holiday and people shouldn't be labouring...damn DPT was in full force and gave me a $55 ticket for an expired meter. Really...that's equivalent to a pair of shoes thankyouverymuch! Goes to show that even though it's a holiday, parking in the city is never free. Ugh...just burns me! I've been ticket free for a good eight years! There goes that track record!

Whine over...seriously...some nice needlepointer out there...please adopt this canvas!

Until next time...

{{{Valerie}}} - so sorry about the ticket :( I hope you can find a home for the stocking soon.

Bummer about the ticket. Don't think about it in terms of shoes -- that's depressing. :D Hope someone wants the stocking -- it really is a good deal.

You go ahead and whine all you want! That's what your blog is for, to put what YOU think and feel. I would have had the same reaction about the ticket. And, yes, special dates can be hard, but you seemed to muster through all right. It will get easier.

Hi! I was over at someone else's blog...pardon my rudeness, but I have forgotten the name of it. Anyway, I read your comment that said you like fog and I thought, "How funny, not many people are like me in their fog preferences." So I came over here to see who thinks like me, low and behold, the reason is, we share the same fog. I live just a few miles south in Pacifica.
I'm going to come back and read your blog more thoroughly, but I just HAD to say hi to a fellow fog lover!

I hope this lovely stocking can find a home and someone to get it all stitched up in time for santa coming down the chimney

Goodness me. There's a whole bunch of Caron threads in there! Sorry but I don't do needlepoint either. Got enough on the go with the stitchin' and the crochet. Hope it finds a good home soon.x
