It is Friday - worked on Convent's Herbal Garden for a bit. No major progress, just couldn't focus a whole lot.... This garden calls for Petite Treasure Braid too - specifically one strand. I just can't get used to MLI's instructions to use two - LOL! (I had to use Photobucket tonight, so sorry - you can't click to enlarge today's photos.... hopefully Blogger photos will work again tomorrow).
I picked up some treats for myself tonight... feeling bluesy and so I finally got Waiting for Neptune by Heaven and Earth Designs - been wanting this for a while now! I also ordered a fat quarter of Mithril 32 ct lugana by Country Stitch, hopefully for Mermaids of the Deep Blue - like many stitchers, I am still trying to find the perfect fabric for that one! And, I got two skeins of white Anchor Marlitt, a pack of size 28 Piecemakers needles and a skein of Mediterranean Waterlilies for Dragon of the Deeps. I decided to try out ABC Stitch Therapy for these. They had the best deal that I could find for Country Stitch Kiwi Illusions fabric....
I received my fat quarter of R&R 40 ct. Creme Brulee today for Garden Spots Sampler, and Jo and I have decided to start this SAL on Tuesday (well, if her silks come in by then, actually). In that same order, I received the fat quarter of SMF Sun Dappled Glade which will be for a Dracolair dragon. And, I got the SMF Murky Depths and Lakeside Linens Mocha today too!
Red Sox 3, Athletics 2 - tied 2-2 most of the evening... bottom of the tenth, bases are loaded with Red Sox, Manny Ramirez at the plate... and the Oakland pitcher hit him with the pitch, walking in the winning run for the Red Sox. Strange, how often does that ever happen??
Looks like I have a full time stitching schedule now :-) Starting on Sunday, my new rotation is:
Mondays - Earth Angel
Tuesdays - Garden Spots Sampler
Wednesdays - Legends of the Dragons
Thursdays - Celtic Winter
Fridays - Convent's Herbal Garden
Saturdays - Mermaid Heaven
Sundays - An Open Heart
At work - 17th Century Irish Garden
That leaves Little Wings, Houses of Hawk Run Hollow, Angel of Love and Girl with Cat without assigned days - but I promise to myself to stitch them when I feel like I want to - I don't want to be that regimented! LOL! And, what to do when Medieval Town Mandala starts in two weeks? Yikes, is there an 8th day in the week yet? I better go sit down and figure this one out! My best initial idea is to accelerate getting Earth Angel done now.... and use Mondays for MTM?
