Since I did not have to work today, I sat myself down, watched some syndicated sitcoms like What I Like About You, Reba, According to Jim, My Wife And Kids, and such... and got all the rest of that beading done. They are done!!!!! This was a fun stitch! Mike took this photo with his digital camera and he captured the color of the linen much better than mine ever has.
So... then I really didn't have a whole lot of time left over to work on An Emblem of Love, so the swan is not stitched yet. Everything in the medallion around the swan is finished, plus another little pinkish heart to the right of the medallion - next week, I really hope to stitch the swan :-) I still adore this project!
I finally took a photo of this incredibly adorable scissor fob that Su made for me. Isn't it cute? My photo is blurry! And, I thought I had done a good job! This fob got some nice compliments at CATS :-) Su also sent me the chart from Shepherd's Bush's St. Peter's Fair, which she must have seen on my Wish List - thanks again Su! (The fob says, "roses grow in a sweet little row" - Su knows me so well!
And, another giftie - Becky must have seen a comment I left somewhere saying that I feel like Charlie Brown since I owned zero needlerolls - she took care of that and sent me this sweet little Halloween one! Now, at last, I do own a needleroll! I need to go and buy a basket for it - it will look a bit lonely in there, but I do believe these are to be displayed in baskets - LOL! Thank you Becky and Su - you are both sooo sweet!
Now, I don't want to panic anyone about yesterday's comment about my concerns over two friends suffering losses. I got some very concerned emails - nobody has passed away, nobody is ill, everyone's children are safe... I am just feeling sad over other losses my friends are experiencing. I did not mean to alarm anyone. Sorry about that!!
Stitched on today: Mermaids of the Deep Blue and An Emblem of Love
