After my crazy startitis a couple weeks ago, I finally settled myself down and continued to work on Martha Jones and I'm glad that I did - I love the colors of her:
I was going to work my way down the left side of her, but I can't wait to get to the A&E so tonight I'll work down from the center. She's a fun stitch with some algerian eyes and satin stitch.
This is what she will look like when she's finished:

Quilting has just about gone by the wayside lately. While running around like a crazy woman these past few weeks, some quilting came in that I was dying to get to:
The first month of the Phebe quilt came in and two months' worth of the Cotton Club. I've been trying so hard to keep up with the Cotton Club when it comes in each month. As much as I would have loved to start Phebe, I decided it best to catch up on those CC blocks:

I did come across a great find a few months ago though. I went up to my son's college to take him some things and I was running early. I saw a sign that said "Barn Sale" and decided to check it out. I'm so happy that I did because I found a gem. And the man didn't even know it's worth. It was his MIL's who had lived with he and his wife and she liked to sew. But now that she was gone they decided to sell of some of her things and this is what I walked out with - for $30!!!
I also picked up a couple dinner bells that I thought were really cute - they were both a few dollars a piece.
Perhaps I could put one of these by my stitching chair and ring it when I want my
Well, that's it for me. Again I'm flying out the door - dance just ended two weeks ago and now we're off to auditions for next Fall's dance lines. It never ends!!!
I hope that everyone has a wonderful week and a fantastic Memorial weekend!! Make it stitchy!!
