Well, now I am just ambling along on Medieval Town Mandala... and cannot stop wondering why Martina gave us this huge chunk to do during the shortest month of the year - LOL! So, here I am looking at what looks like some fairly decent progress tonight, and really trying my hardest not to think of that fact that after I finally finish this corner... I have three more to do before the month ends!!
And, well.... still no fabric has arrived for my Neighborhood RR. I fear I may have to send my project off a little bit late to its first receiver. Oh, I would hate that!! I am glad the house I chose to stitch on mine is not all that very difficult... and basting the fabric out will take some time, but I could probably just do that at work on break... but I really can't do anything if my fabric does not even come in before the month ends :-( It might be time to recontact Sillkweaver about this... sigh.
The April 2006 issue of Just Cross Stitch came in the mail today - I think those Thea Gouverneur roses on the cover are just stunning, if not my cup of tea. But the issue is not bad... Julia Lucas contributes a house that may just find itself onto someone's Neighborhood RR :-) Spring is definitely the theme - lots of pretty florals dominate this month.
Wow, February sure is a busy month for birthdays amongst stitching bloggers! I don't know everyone's birthdays, and wish I did... But there are four this month that I am taking care of. I am so glad that Anne's gifts have now found their way to Australia. I have two more packages all set for Mike to post off tomorrow for two very special birthdays... and then there is yet another special birthday later this month that still needs to be attended to :-) Busy, busy :-)
Big snow storm forecasted for Saturday into Sunday - yay, quiet stitching time to maybe get something done on Medieval Town Mandala!! I have to admit, I am glad I am not stitching this huge portion in the middle of the summer, as some of us are... ugh!
You may have noticed the picture of The Gift of Stitching magazine near the top of my sidebar. I have put it there for charitable purposes. The small commission that comes to me from those who subscribe will be donated, in its entirety, to NAAR, The National Alliance for Autism Research. So, if you are interested, please subscribe - it is a great cause :-)
