Here is the reason why my blog entry is so late today... instead of working on the Celtic Band Sampler SAL, as I should have, I decided instead to put another night into Convent's Herbal Garden... just because I am enjoying it again so much! I was exhausted when I finally put it down, so I just went to bed :-) And, while I love stitching along with Dani and Katrina, they started ahead of me and are way ahead of me with Celtic Band Sampler now... and while I also love the sampler, I find it rather boring... so I had tons of excuses to stitch on the garden tonight instead! But, I will buckle down and "do the right thing" soon - meaning, get back to Celtic Band Sampler :-)
I received a lovely package today from Karen - I picked up a Spring Ride chart for her (should be here soon, I got notice it was shipped to me...), and she sent me the most adorable Valerie Pfeiffer kit, Fish Tonight! Those puffins are the cutest!! And, I will also be sending her the white Wisper for Celtic Winter.... I can't believe she sent me an entire kit! Well, watch out dearie - there will be a little surprise in the package too to even it up.... and because she is a dear pal!
I was high bidder today for a fat quarter of Sugar Maple Fabrics 28 ct Hudson's Bay Jubilee :-) I received a really pretty 18" x 18" piece of Silkweaver 32 ct Periwinkle evenweave from ebay today.... love it :-) I also stopped and got the floss I need for Fairy Idyll today... as I noticed that I do not currently have a Mirabilia in my rotation... that feels strange!

Yay, it is Friday! Mike and his friend will be busy, busy, busy putting up insulation and sheetrock, as well as doing some plumbing, in our soon-to-be finished off basement.... so I get to relax, stitch, watch baseball and NASCAR... cool, eh?? And, I shall post pics of the basement in progress as soon as I can get some good ones.
