Hope your enjoying your Friday night! I know I sure am, because I've just knocked out my next goal for this month. I have finished my Blackbird January Stockings in JANUARY! Will miracles never cease?!?!?!?! I stitched AND finished them. And here they are:
(l - r) "Winter Carnations", "Auld Lang Syne" and "Happy Birthday"
Fabric: 28 ct. evenweave Vonna's Bake and Basted
Fibers: mixture of GAST, WDW and DMC as called for
success! What a gratifying accomplishment it is to actually sit and stitch up something that you bought and paid for and has been sitting in a drawer for a year. Yep, now that makes me feel good! And I've already gotten 4 finishes for 2010 :) Yes indeedy, I'm off to a good start.
I dropped off Mistress Margaret at Michael's for framing. She's lazing it around getting the spa treatment until her big frame day which is supposed to be January 29th. I chose a special frame for her and I decided to go ahead and get her put under glass. Mike is having a big 60% of custom framing sale this week here in good 'ol Bloomy Indiana so I thought why not have Mike frame Margie up. Save me some time ;o) Plus the difference between them doing it and my doing it was marginal.
Such a good day, that I'm going to end it with one of my favorite snacks...well let's be serious - one of my favorite low point, filling food snacks. (That's Weight Watcher talk for healthy.) Cause in reality the old Twisted Stitcher would like to sink her teeth into a big brownie :) But I'll settle for my apples and Laughing Cow Cheese for 3 whole points. I cut the apples up in bits and put on a luncheon plate to make it look like a big pile of food, when really it is only one sorry apple and two wedges of cheese. But when I cut it up like this I feel like I'm eating a big mountain of apples.....I know, I know you're probably all rolling your eyes, but seriously I'm into mind games with myself. Always have been. And you all need to try this cheese! Dip your apple in it and take a bite. WOW! A bite of apple with a bite of this cheese...its seriously DELISH! Wash it all down with a big 'ol swig of Diet Mt. Dew....now that's living! Or we'll act like it is so I don't think I'm missing out on anything.
I'm off to get started on my next goal for the month of January. I'll leave you wondering so you'll be panting for more ;o) Come on back and visit me real soon now!
Until next time....
hands to work and hearts to God!
Love and hugs,
