Gentle Readers and Dear Friends it seems that this past weekend was busy or was it? Although there was two days off we stayed pretty busy just catching up on the day to day things. I did accomplish one thing I had on my list that I thought I wouldn't get to - I made it to the Serramonte Center - a big Mall just south of the city and picked up a Birthday Present for my Niece. Her Birthday is coming up - the day after mine - so there is no excuses to forget. Thank goodness I asked my sister ahead of time what I could get for her - I would have had no idea as to size - or even what department to start looking in. The sales girl was very helpful at the Macy's and I left with a mission accomplished!! But, boy did I feel old and clueless!!
I went to that Mall instead of the Mall I usually go to because I needed to stop in to Michael's for a skein of DMC 371 I was missing - which was making me nuts!! It always seems that out of the 25 skeins you have there is always one that you don't - AND - that one is the one that you need to get a new start moving along. Here is a snap of my new start .....
"Harvest Blessing" by Mary Beale,
from Notebook Pocketbook, Fall 1990
28ct PT Fresco - recommended DMC
It is zooming along nicely - and is a smallish piece that I already have a frame lined up from the "frame heap.".
I also got some stitching in on Shores - and here is where I left off on that piece....
Even though the picture is wonky as all get out - you get the idea. Now that I have the house all filled in this will be a much nicer Block as I really love the way the pine tress look.
There you go sports fans - I did bake a treat but will save that for tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by and for your great comments!!
