More Gardening

I spent most of my stitching time today finishing a gift (I am caught up with current birthdays now, but have some belated ones to address still). But after that, I put in some time on Mystery IX. I was able to put leaves on the trees in the bottom right corner tonight. Then I got tired. I am fighting off a cold or sinus infection, not sure which yet. Time to just relax and watch a movie or something.

Thanks to all who left sweet comments and emails about A Christmas Spirit. I really did enjoy working on her last night. If Mystery IX's final part is not too huge next month, I should be able to get her back into my rotation - wow, a rotation! I will finally be back to a rotation after Mystery IX concludes. I am really looking forward to that. I was also happy to learn that several of you have A Christmas Spirit in your stash - I hope to see you all starting her soon :-)

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and Mystery IX

Carol,

It's been a long time since I've left you a comment, but I have been watching your progress on Mystery IX and all I can say is "Wow, am I impressed!" This is really a beautiful piece, but then you always do such beautiful work!

Hi, Carol, your MIX is looking good - almost to the finish line now!

It looks like you didn't update your blog yesterday - I can only remember that happening once or twice before - hope everything is okay. It's like a morning without coffee if I can't read your blog! :-)

Happy stitching! Margaret C
