Really no stitching this week, due to a migraine the past couple of days. I think I’ve managed to get rid of it now, but I still have my fingers crossed. Here’s a recent photo of Baby Garden anyway, so that you can see the cats and the beeskeps. I have over one squirrels and hearts to do next.
But, I am taking a little break from this piece today and tomorrow. I’ve taken the day off work and I will have 24 hours while Eric is in Wisconsin to stitch on Tesori. I haven’t stitched on it in awhile, so I will be glad to get in some solid stitching on it. I’ve got ten blocks to stitch by the end of the year, so I am hoping I can at least get a few out of the way in 24 hours. Of course, I do have to sleep too, I guess. I have some movie watching planned too. Every fall I have two movies I like to watch, You’ve Got Mail (I love the seasons in this film) and Practical Magic. So, that’s on my agenda today. And until Eric leaves, I’ll be trying to catch up on my blog reading.
My Silkweaver Fabric of the Month arrived yesterday. This month’s selections are Seafoam and an Exclusive no-name piece. Love them both!
And finally, in the spirit of the Finish What You Have project over at Turkey Feathers, I am trying to get a few things out of that “I really need to do something with this” pile. You’ve seen my recent pinkeeps and my wallhanging, so far so good! My best friend made this gorgeous whole cloth quilt for Eric and I for our wedding. She completely quilted it by hand. When she gave this to us, I had decided to frame it in a shadowbox frame and hang it in our bedroom. Needless to say, this is still not done. I would have to have a custom frame built for it, which is the main reason I haven’t framed it. So, in an effort to actually have it out to enjoy, I’m going to stitch muslin sleeves on the back so that I can hang it. I thought I’d give you a sneak peak though since I have it out on my craft table. I am kind of feeling like the warmth of a quilt is lost when you put it behind glass, so a wallhanging is probably a better option anyway.
And I haven’t forgotten my Encyclopedia of Me…but “C” has to wait until Eric scans a photo for me. Sigh.

I am grateful for Finishing What I Have.
