Greetings, fellow stitchers!
Today is the last day of February. Time for me to look over my goals for the month and make new ones. Let's see how I did!
LITTLE DRUMMER BOY... complete page 1 and 2
Not quite! I have two and a half columns left on page two.
LHN Sheep Virtues... Stitch Second Sheep
Nope! It hasn't come yet. : ( Maybe tomorrow!!
L*K Promise Me... Start
Make one project bag
I decided to let DD stitch this one first, and it turned out ADORABLE! She stitched it on 28 Ct Tea Monaco over 1. I love it! I'm going to be stitching it on 16 ct fabric so mine will seem HUGE compared to hers! I plan to start that this month. : )
I was able to finish another project bag this month, using the same fabric as my last one. I learned a few more things this time - like how NOT to put the zipper in - and I am still playing with the size of the bag a little. I have another zipper, so I hope to make another this coming month.
|L * K Promise Me on a new Project Bag|
Here's my traveling bookmark. I never have much time to work on it at Mom's, but it's growing little by little and it's a nice take-along project. I don't have an "I want this done by..." date on this one, it's just a time filler. : )
I worked a little on my Eye on the Sparrow (Silver Creek Samplers) WIP this month. Filling in the red around the two R's...
And here's a new start from this week. I wanted to stitch a block for charity, so I pulled out a square of blue Monaco and this sweet "Baby's First Christmas" pattern from the book "Priscilla's Babyland" by Gloria and Pat. I've had it on my list to stitch for over 2 years! : ) That blob will be a bunny...
DD the Designer...
DD stitched up this sweet little design that she made up. Isn't it precious? If you'd like the pattern, just let me know!
Shirlee was so sweet to send me her HE snowman ornament that was wreaking havoc at her house. : ) I'm looking forward to stitching it... I think!
- Finish Charity Block

I shouldn't need to spend anything stitching wise this month - but I do love the little L*K limited edition spring kits (flowers and chicks, especially!) that I'm seeing sneak previews of for market. I wouldn't probably be able to use the fabric that they come with, cuz I assume it's linen (I'm allergic), but if any of you are going to get them and would like to pass on the patterns when you're done, please keep me in mind! I'd be happy to pay for them!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a splendiferous day!!
