Another excellent mail day!

It's Tuesday, so another update of Paradigm Lost comes due. I stitched a good 3 hours on this, yet again, not a whole lot of progress. The big motif in the middle that I am working on just goes so slowly. But, I did manage to get a little snowflake done next to it, for a little change of pace :-) Maybe next week I will take a break and work somewhere else on the sampler.

I had another great mail day today! To the left you can see this pretty ornament that I received today from Veronica, a stitcher in the Neighborhood Round Robin. She is not online, unfortunately. I love this little ornament - and am so proud to have it on my tree! Thanks Veronica!!! (I am sending her a note via US mail, as she likely won't see this entry unless she visits her daughter). ...My new pair of Gingher Olivia scissors also came today :-)

It's New DVD Release Tuesday! Two this week! Talladega Nights (couldn't resist a NASCAR themed movie...even though I don't think Ryan is in this at all), and World Trade Center (my BIL is an extra in this movie - he plays a fireman who helps to rescue Nicolas Cage from the WTC).

Well, my FIL arrives tomorrow for a week. He is coming up from Florida, as his father, Mike's grandfather, was recently put in a nursing home in Massachusetts. It will be a busy week for them of getting Grandpa's old apartment cleaned out and things organized....

***KaLu, I saw your comment in my blog recently, but cannot find an email to reach you - if you want to talk about the fabric you want to buy, please email me at the email address listed in my sidebar in the "About Me: More..." section, under the icon of the girl writing in her diary - thanks!

Stitched on today: Stitched on a gift, and Paradigm Lost

Such a pretty ornament! What a great thing to do :)

PL looks lovely as always. I got to see Jo's for real yesterday - it's great. Some of those motifs are really huge though aren't they!

Carol, your PL is a very long project but it's turning out beautiful!!! Congrats on your Emblem and your new scissor fob for Becky. I love eveything.

You received a nice ornament there. Your stitching piece is coming along so nice. Those large pieces can be so time consuming but worth it.
