Hello friends and neighbors! Happy Sunday!
I have not kept track of my bloggerversary. I have not kept track of the number of posts I have made. Sorry I'm such a slacker! But, to make up for all that.... How about a little fun???
I stitched an ornament from the 2008 Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament issue last Sunday as my SSNES project. It is going to be the "mystery ornament". What I would like for you to do is leave a message on this post. Tell me what ornament you think I chose to stitch for my grandchildren this year. Please post by 10/15/08. I will draw the lucky winner on 10/16/08. The winner will receive the same ornament stitched and finished by me, that I have chosen to do for my wonderfully perfect grandchildren! On 10/16/08, I will also post a picture of the SSNES project from last week. Ahhhh... a mystery and fun and games.
Today, for my SSNES project, I started Quaker Friendship Sampler by Samplers and such. I'm stitching this on tan 28 count evenweave with black DMC. I love the black and tan color combo. I'm participating in a round robin with 4 other ladies that starts the first of the year. I'm looking forward to stitching with them in 2009!
The past couple of weeks, work has been a bear. I've been putting in 12 hour days and still can't keep up. I doubt things will change for a while. Yesterday, Ruby & I went to Golden Needle for a little R & R and some therapy! It was wonderful to get away but even better to spend time with Ruby! We have both fallen in love with this:
Rosewood Manor Family Reunion
We will start stitching this on Jan. 1 and this will be our BAP for the year. I have been worried about my SSNES commitment, but, it's my game, so I will start a new motif every Sunday on the Family Reunion project. OK by y'all??
Ruby and I also fell in love with this....
Rosewood Manor Season of Trees.
This may be the BAP for 2010!
And.... I have made a decision on my Neighborhood project from the Me, Myself & I Round Robin:
My "town Square" is going to be by The Work Basket, Bay Sampler. I'm also going to use the houses from Bright Needles Key West & Savannah Samplers. The fibers and the fabric are ready to go 12/31/08!
I'm wondering if I have bitten off more than I can chew for 2009?
I'm off to St Louis on Wednesday for 2 days of training. I'm flying from St Louis to Wichita Friday evening to spend the weekend with my Brothers, Sister-in-laws, Sister, brother-in-law, nieces and nephews! I can't wait. Not sure how much stitching I will get done, but will take a small piece. The ipod has plenty of audiobooks and movies to keep me entertained at the airport. I will fly home on Monday and back to a ton of work at work on Tuesday.
Happy stitching! Don't forget to leave me a message!
