Happy Saturday everyone! I’m so glad the weekend is here. It was a long week for some reason. I did, however, take another final at school and my certification exam for this class will probably be next week. I’m onto my fifth class now, and I have two more after that. Then I am DONE! Anyway, I have been stitching this week, even though one night Eric took me out to see a fabulous performance on Tuesday night. So, here’s my progress for this week. As you can see above, I did get out my mermaids and stitch on them. I finished up a page last night. This is page 1, of course, which is a small page (basically a half page), but it was the center so that’s why I started there. I’ll be moving on to mermaid number two and working my way up I think. So, page 1 complete, minus bling. Here’s how she looked a couple of weeks ago, when I stitched on her last.
And also this week, I felt like stitching on something small, so I decided to go ahead and start on Adam & Eve by Carriage House Samplings. I am stitching this over one on 28ct black linen with the recommended NPIs. Don’t you just love silk. There is nothing like it. Anyway, the swirls seemed like a fun place to start, so that’s what I’m doing.
I’m stitching this one as a SAL with several other stitchers from the Carriage House Samplings yahoo group. I’m very excited about stitching my first A&E. Anyway, tomorrow I’ll be starting the other SAL I’ve jumped into (also in the same group), on Shores of Hawk Run Hollow. I’m so in love with that piece. I can’t wait.
And although I didn’t really place any Nashville orders, I thought I’d show you a few things that the mailman has brought over the last week.
I ordered the finishing chart for the freebie alphabet charts Erica Michaels designed for Rainbow Gallery. I’ve got all the supplies to start the first two, I just need to set time aside to do them. I love how they are finished into a book though. And speaking of books, have you seen the most beautiful book ever? Go look, I’ll wait, it’s worth it. WOW! That’s all I can say.
I also received the last of the 2008 Loose Feathers charts, or as Siobhan calls it, the Shrek glove.
Anyway, I think that’s all for me today. I’ll have my Shores start to show you soon, but I’ll wait until I have more than a black border to show you. Have a great weekend.
I am grateful for Saturdays.
