Another month gone by......how can I recap? I traveled another 500 miles to meet another friend, Stephanie in Ky, had a great weekend and Natalie was there for a school conference so I was able to see her again! We organized Stephanie's long neglected floss. It took the 3 of us 6 hours to do, but it was worth it and it was the best thing we could do for a working Dr. with limited time off!!! I gave Stephanie one of the scissors keeps that I had also made for everyone at Jubilee. This one was personalized with the colors both she and Lori loved and I used the Lavender floss Lori gave me for Christmas in the design.
In other stitching progress, I decided to get out my long neglected HAED and finish a page. I took this with me to KY to get their opinions. I think it is stitching much darker than the photo of it and wasnt' real happy. They told me to stitch the page under where I am now instead of going across and have assured me it will look fine in the end. Here is the album link so you can see the photo of the design. So let the debating begin......
On the 23rd of each month, we are doing a remembrance stitching in honor of our friend who passed. For now I will be doing a design that she was also working on. In Jan that piece was Castles in the Air.
I put a little more time in my current RR of Jodie's.
And since none of my stitching was thrilling me much I decided to start something new. I was helped out in that department by receiving a package in the mail from my friend Gabi. She sent me a LNH pattern "snowflakes" that I had admired on her blog. So in the midst of the worst snow of the season I am working on that!!!
One day last week I received a large box in the mail and to my surprise it was filled with finishing supplies!! Lyne sent them to me hoping that they would be used instead of taking up space at her house. I think I can put them to good use!
One more thing I would like to mention is my frustration with Chatelaine designs. I have been unhappy in the Fairy Garden group about having to wait for a corrected chart that I had paid for back in June. She kept promising the correction and I kept waiting. Well finally last night I decided to send a post. Low and behold the new file just happened to be uploaded!!! My disappointment now was that not ONE person wrote that they agreed with me! Once she has your money you apparently aren't as important as pumping out new patterns every couple of weeks (which are also probably filled with mistakes). Off my soap box now.
And since no post is complete with an Amberlyn update, here she is! Now mobile in this world too! Watch out! And yes that's a bruise on her head, from being mobile! Thought I'd show her mom too!
