Well, Eric and I are both feeling much better. Thanks for all the healing words you left! And, I am so excited, Paulette posted my Twilight tag on her blog. Woohoo! So, after missing last week’s SAL day on the mermaids, I wanted to be sure to pick them back up this weekend. I am soooo close to finishing the page I’m on. It’s a small page, but hey, a page is a page. Above is what she looks like after Sunday’s stitching, below is how she looked last time.
After finishing At Home with Jane Austen, I decided I would pick up my Dorothy’s Garden. This is the piece that my guild members chose for me to finish this year as my MAGIC (My Annual Good Intentions Contract) piece. So, here’s how Dorothy looked the last time I worked on her – January of 2006 (I started this piece in 2004).
And here is how she looks now. I finished the roof slates, that knot motif and then started in on the flower basket below it. This is stitched over one.
I’m sort of dreading stitching on that house, but I think I’ll break it up and stitch on it between motifs. That should keep it from getting too overwhelming or monotonous.
With Valentine’s Day being on the horizon, I have a new little start. This is My Everything by The Sampler Girl. (and yes I know there’s more to the poem…but I really like these lines). I’m stitching with Tulip Belle Soie – luscious – on 32ct cream linen.
I had a little bit of mail over the weekend to share with you too… my Block of the Month for my Halloween Baltimore Album quilt. This is month two. And no you didn’t miss anything, I haven’t done month one.
New books – two are for my book club (one more on the way). I’m enjoying my Stephanie Plum book, but I’m almost finished with it. I’ll have to decide if I have time to read something else before my next book club.
Well that’s it for me…I’m off to get a case of Stitch Ass, as Siobhan calls it. Have a great week!
I am grateful for weekends with my husband.
