The month is winding down, so time to just plain old choose a project I love!
Well, that is what I did last night too! But, I opted to just do a fun one again tonight - Angel of Love! I don't think I have worked on her since Christmas night. I would have to doublecheck that. Anyhow, I didn't make a whole lot of progress... a bit of the white on top of her wing... and some of the mosaic in her skirt... and then - ooops! I found a miscount and had to frog out two of the motifs on her skirt and then it was time to put it down. Oh well, I had to find that boo boo sometime. Now it is all rectified.
I have been told by at least one blogger that she is unable to see anything in my sidebar beyond the Moon Phase... she says it started after I added blogrolling, which was about 1-2 months ago. Is anyone else having that problem? I think I will delete the Moon Phase tonight. It has given me problems in the past... maybe it is the culprit again? Anyhow, please let me know. I see the full sidebar on the computers in both of my offices in Massachusetts, so it is not my server... very confusing!!
Becky and Barbara have both expressed an interest in jumping in on a SAL with me for Houses of Hawk Run Hollow! Becky needs to get all of her supplies, and I think Barbara needs to get her fabric... that would be fun!!! Barb, I have a Tuesday SAL commitment with Jo - right now we are doing Garden Spot Sampler, and when that is done we are doing Paradigm Lost by Long Dog Samplers. On Wednesdays, Becky and I stitch our Celtic Ladies together. Fridays sound good, though... does that work for you, Becky?? I think Barbara offered another day too - I have to re-read yesterday's comments to check that though :-)
I spent some time tonight dreaming up how to set up my Neighborhood RR. Here is what I came up with.. my January 31, 2006 entry about my design is here - I plan to set mine up in tic tac toe fashion with fourteen threads between each square. I will add the brick walkway that is seen on Liz Turner Diehl's 18th Century Colonial Garden between each block... and when it comes home I will add a central neighborhood garden in the center square - right now I am thinking of Martina Weber's Mini Rose Garden Mandala... but I might go with the center of one of Liz Turner Diehl's gardens... I have to see what goes best when it comes home with all 8 houses stitched on it... but that is well over a year away... is it two years? So no need to rush to figure that out right now! LOL! (I would post the images here that I put in the other blog entry, but those images are loaded on my other computer).
Mike surprised me with a DVD today that he knew I wanted: Lord of War - Oh, I almost forgot! Dani and Jenn asked how Flightplan was - I watched it Saturday morning - I liked it :-) You will begin to believe very early on in the movie that you know what is happening... don't believe yourself :-) I love movies with twists!!
Stitched on today: Angel of Love
