It's been such a busy week that I haven't had much time for stitching. If it's not the kids needing time, it's a migraine or my husband. It's just been one of those weeks when I just wish I could run off to a quiet little cabin and stitch my troubles away.
So, after not stitching much of the week I was finally able to put needle to fabric and work a bit on mom's birthday gift. Here's my progress so far.....
Not much yet, but hey a stitch is a stitch. I've been busily looking through my stash bags and finding things that I've kitted up in the past and deciding what UFO's I want to focus on this year. I've decided to pull my BoInk back out and use it for my UFO Wednesdays. I had put it away after realizing I had made a mistake on centering the stitched part on the fabric. I'll have *maybe* and inch on the right side left when I finish it, but I'm hoping when its framed and hanging on the wall it won't make a difference. At least all those fabulous Carries Threads won't be wasted...:)
I also ran onto a French SAL that I had wanted to do last year. I believe it was called "Grand Marquoir" and can be found at www.edisaxe.com When I had first saw the pattern I fell in love with it and bought fabric and floss to complete it, then....I couldn't figure out how to get the patterns to print properly and just said the heck with it. I've had the first couple of parts just sitting there waiting but I just couldn't bring myself to do anything with it until I knew for sure I'd be able to get the rest of the pattern. Well, the other day I was looking around online and ran onto it once again and after about an hour of playing around was finally able to get all of it printed off! I am so thrilled!! This is one project that I really really want to do and I don't even have to go out and buy anything for it, LOL! (insert teeny tiny happy dance here)
That's it for my update this week...just a lot of ramblings about nothing...hee hee! I hope all my cyber friends are healthy and happy and keeping your needles smoking. Hugs to you all!
