Today I got a fantastical surprise package from my friend Cathy B.! She sent me the most wonderful of gifts, it is the Blackbird Designs pattern "Their Song" and all the WDW flosses and fabric to do the design with! Isn't that spectacular?! And here's a picture of it:
I'm so excited to start this and "feel" I may start it *really* soon...so I guess I'll have to change my goals because of this...or maybe I'll just add it to my list ;) I've earmarked this project as the gift I'm stitching for my Mom's birthday on Feb. 25, do you think I can get it done Dear Diary? I sure do hope so!
Well yesterday it was *very* cold here in Indiana, the mercury never rose above 7 degrees, and the wind blew all day and made it feel in the minus 10 degree range...yikes Dear Diary, my tootsie and bum were cold! So we stayed inside all day and all I did was make a big pot of chili and finish this:
My second "completion" of the 2008 - Patience Pillow by LHN from the Abigail Winslow pattern. I decided yesterday that each 'patterned' piece of my Dear Diary Sampler, I will consider a finish...I believe this will give me many small victories along the way!
So was this all that I accomplished, heck no! I went on and did this:
The border outline and bottom vine of Abigail's Dear Diary chart! I'm getting VERY excited as I see it "coming" to life! I don't want to put it away...what shall I do? Well, I put it away anyway, because to day is laundry day and CDC stitching day. Let's see what I do with it and I'll show you tomorrow!
I still have one more spot on my PIF list....any takers?
I hope today that I stitch with nimble fingers :)
