Some more Earth Angel

Due to having SAL commitments for the next two nights (at least), I will be putting Earth Angel away for a bit - maybe I will forgo Thursday's SAL as I am making good progress, and maybe even my usual Friday night project just to try to get her done... but maybe not. I finished the flowers tonight, but I have lots and lots of ribbons to stitch now!! I wish that Jenn was enjoying hers enough to keep stitching along with me, though. Kind of a bummer. I have enjoyed stitching with her.

I got in a nice pile of stash today - when it rains, it pours (well, it actually is raining right now... ironic....). I received the backissue of The World of Cross Stitching with the two super cute Valerie Pfeiffer bird charts in it - I really love them! I got in SMF's Solitude belfast via ebay, as well as the fat quarter of the Amethyst lugana from White Willow Stitching. Then, I got in an order from Stitching Bits & Bobs which includes the Heritage Cashel by Picture This Plus, several skeins of GAST in Black Raspberry Jam (for a Long Dog Sampler), a pack of Mill Hill beads for Celtic Autumn, and two packs of Mill Hill Treasures for Mermaids of the Deep Blue :-)

No Red Sox tonight... for that matter, no Yankees either. Both teams have to play double headers tomorrow due to the residual effects of Hurricane Rita in the mid-Atlantic (Baltimore, which postponed the Yankees) and here... nothing too major, but it is a bit windy out there with the rain.... sigh. Poor Sox, double headers are not fun and all of the seven remaining games really are "must wins" for them. ***I was misled by the news, the Yankees are playing tonight after all.... it is just the Sox that have to play a double header tomorrow....sigh

Meanwhile, the Patriots have lost Rodney Harrison, safety, for the year with the severe knee injury he suffered in yesterday's game against the Steelers. This is not good. We lost another veteran, Matt Light, too - don't know for how long. Yikes!

Stitched on today: 17th Century Irish Garden and Earth Angel

she really does look amazing. I don't blame you if you ignore the others to get her finished.

So close! It won't be long now. Is the new chatelaine taking her spot when you're done or have I missed something somewhere along the way? :)
