I’ve received word that Carol received the birthday gifts I sent her. I stitched this needleminder for her, using the same finishing technique I used for my Flower of Courage. I chose to stitch a motif from the Sarah Moon sampler, because Carol loves Ackworth School samplers. I am so pleased she likes it. Happy Birthday, Carol!

Their Song 073007

It was a good, but busy weekend. I was able to get to the halfway point on Their Song, which is where I wanted to be by the end of last week. I was even able to get a bit farther yesterday. We finished watching Season 2 of Dark Angel, and now we’ve starting watching Season 1 of JAG, which is one of Eric’s favorite shows. Anyway, one of my goals for this month was to finish Their Song. I don’t know that I’m going to make it, since I won’t be stitching tonight. Oh well, I’ve made good progress on it, which I am really glad for. I would really like to finish a larger project. The only piece over a small-size that I’ve finished this year is my Lemon Meringue Sampler. So, it’s about time to get something off my WIP list. Once I finish up Their Song, I plan to get back to Baby Garden so that I can finish it up. Wouldn’t that be nice?

I’ve also had to send back the fabric that I got for the newest Loose Feathers – it was terrible. So, I’ll be exchanging it for a piece that looks a little better, I hope!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

I am grateful for the realization of which choice to make.

  1. I absolutely love the needleminder you stitched for Carol! Such a great idea. I stitched the Essy’s Friends version and never thought to use it in this way or to finish another piece in the same style but I think I’ll definitely try this with another design 🙂 Love your colour choices too.

    Lovely progress on Their Song – this is one of my favourite BD pieces!

  5. This shows you how far behind I am on commenting on blogs … even though I’ve been reading occasionally when I get chance, I didn’t want to mark this post as read until I’d had time to sit down and comment hmmm. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you your Sarah Moon motif needle park is absolutely exquisite!!! I seriously adore it – you did a fantastic job 😀 Rightio, now I think I’m all caught up on your news! 😉
