So here we are at day 4 and the letter D:
verb - to become or make something warmer, especially food, so that it is no longer frozen
I couldn't find anything interesting about defrost, except that, with regards to freezers, it is becoming a less common occurrence as most freezers are now made frost-free. How interesting - not!!
It wasn't easy to find any charts about defrosting but I did find:
Too Hot by Aury TM
Going Going Gone by Idle Time Designs
Let's Be Frozen by Ursula Michael
My personal Ds are:Dolphins - my favourite animal. I stroked some dolphins at Windsor Safari Park in 1991 but have no ambition to swim with them.
Dragons - I love cute dragons although don't collect ornaments etc and definitely haven't stroked any! We do, however, have 5 big dragons in our house made from Lego.
Dunking Digestives - a must with my hot chocolate. Sometimes I accidentally on purpose let them fall in, which intensely annoys hubby but is a habit I have passed on to my children!
And finally my finished project:
Dolphin Splash by True Colors
my third ever finish way back in 1994
This was stitched on 11 count because the fabric had a lovely sheen. I have the matching Orca Splash and some more of the fabric but honestly can't ever see me stitching on 11 count again. Never say never though!
Thank you for all of the positive comments you have been leaving so far. I have a couple of questions to answer:
1) no, I do not own the charts I am finding to accompany each letter or phrase; they are just suitable ones I have found on the internet.
2) the project I am stitching for this A-Z came out of a magazine back in 1994 and is called Humerous Alphabet. Each day I will only be revealing the relevant letter so if you want to see the whole piece you'll have to wait for the final Z post!
Tomorrow's E post is a bit more whacky.Rachel x
