Sally liked her PIF! Thank goodness; I tend to stress out about what to stitch for other people. I scoured her blog for hints and decided to make a project pouch with sampler motifs and ‘hidden’ initials. Now to plan for my next PIF victim…
I had a WONDERFUL weekend! Lots of fun with friends, lots of stashing, lots of eating, and very little sleep… heck, I partied so hard I’ve got a broken toe. (really) It’s finally starting to feel a little better, although I still can’t bear to wear a shoe for very long. I hope I recover soon because in about 9 days I head to Branson for another stitching weekend.
At the Stitch-In, I started a few things, and finished two:
This is JBW’s French Country Rooster. I’m doing it in turquoise colors to match my MIL’s kitchen… this will be part of her Christmas gift.
This is last year’s HIH Halloween design, minus the border. I just wanted a bitty thing to put in my scrapbook.
This is “Boo” by Blackbird Designs… I’ll use this one for an exchange block next year. (I can’t believe I’m planning that far ahead)
One of the ladies was unloading her BOAF charts, and of course I couldn’t resist helping her out. Here’s the start of “Patience”. These are all small, but I really got way more stitching done that I thought I would. I also started on something I’m doing for my hubby but I can’t post that here :)
I need to do some work, but I really want to do is put my foot up and have a nap…
