Isadarina's start on this a while ago and decided that I needed to do it. Well, I pulled it out, but didn't start it (figures). I started this instead:
Hark the Herald Angel
Ewe Eye & Friends (Twisted Threads)
Again, bad pic, but I thought this would be a fun, quick stitch to work on. Considering I've only worked on it two nights, I've made good progress for me! I also finally rounded up the supplies for the PS Alphabet SAL and hope to start in on that this weekend.
I received some goodies in the mail this week. Be still my heart for these fabrics:
Fat quarters from Moda's French General line thanks to Kim (Enabler Extraordinaire)! She was the one that made me order that Phebe quilt that I alluded to in my last post. Twisted my arm and everything! Only kidding, but ya gotta blame someone, right! Anyway, I can't wait to get the rotary cutter in hand and go at these. Although I still haven't settled on a quilt to make with them yet.
Speaking of the Phebe quilt, I finally found a fairly good picture of it:
Civil War Bride Quilt But that one has a lot more applique, so I think I should get my feet wet with Phebe first.
Then a couple weeks ago I won Jennifer's giveaway and received this Sensibility chart from The Sampler Girl and Jennifer included a fat quarter in with the chart:
Pathetic person that I am, my tree is still being decorated. I keep begging for one of those pre-lit trees, but DH whines in the background, "But this tree still looks so good" (read - I am cheap! LOL). Well, it does, but my hands look like a disaster after I put the danged thing together. Last year, after I took it down, I managed to drag the thing in its box out to the curb for the trash collector. DH intercepted it and I walked down the basement a few days later and discovered it partially hidden in the corner of the workroom! UGH! Like seeing something out of horror movie!!! This will be my last year - mark my words! Anyway, when I get all the lights on it, there are over 3,000. I'm surprised I haven't burned the house down. But it's still not finished, DD and I will do that tonight - she insists on doing the tree trimming this year. Our tree is nothing fancy, but encompasses ornaments from our lives:
Well, that's about it for me this week. Now I'm off to peruse Ebay, Amazon and assorted places to see what items my kids have on watch for me to buy for them! There's no telling what's in there! DD has probably marked everything that has a Peace symbol on it as something she wants - she's going through a stage with Peace symbols. But, heck, it makes life so much easier sitting at the computer and not having to fight the crowds. Then I need to string garland up the stairs, lug up the rest of the ornaments (which if DD has her way, every single one will be on that tree), and do some other decorating.
Thanks for all your comments again. I'm so happy that you stop and say hello. Have a great weekend and make a lot of X's.
