Almost there...


What's a rotation? I seem to have forgotten. Tonight I was clueless as to what to stitch, so I grabbed what was near my chair - Bordeaux Sampler. I am pretty close to finishing it now. I probably should have spent tonight gridding out my RR fabric, though... Oh I know, I should do that on Tuesday (or sooner) since Paradigm Lost is finished... wow, July is going to be a busy month with many commitments. I best get myself organized!!

My silly husband, who absolutely hates to wait in any kind of line for more than a mere moment, actually spent six hours waiting at the Mall today for the release of the Apple iPhone. He was fourth in line and got his within five minutes of the doors opening up tonight. He simply proved to me that he can actually wait for things... now I need to figure out how to use that to get him to be more patient with other things!!

I sent off my Fair and Square blocks today to Margaret Wong - I hope they do not take long to get to Kuala Lumpur! And, I also posted off my Summer Quaker exchange back on Monday (6/25)...

Stitched on today: Started a gift, and Bordeaux Sampler

I'm laughing till tears spurt out of my eyes at the things men will wait so patiently for!

So close, Carol. It will be a wonderful finish. Your comment about Mike made me laugh... Erik is a self proclaimed Apple die hard (since 1985)!

Carol!!!!!!
You finished Paradigm, you're almost done with Bordeaux. You are a wonder...with a smoking needle. (((((((HUG)))))))))). I am (finally) catching up on some blog reading and might even do a little stitching today, but first I had to see what was going on in your world.
You are an inspiration!
Blessings,
Julie

Bordeau Sampler looks wonderful. Hard to believe it's almost finished. Have a happy stitching weekend.

Wow! You're so close! I meant to tell you that I saw a sampler that looked almost exactly like that on display at the museum at Jamestown. Same colors, same theme, even the same bear-like vinters! They didn't allow pictures inside the museum. :(

Jenn said...

Congrats to Mike for waiting that long. Your so close with BS, could we have 2 finishes in a week?

Lauren said...

Oh my gosh, it's just so beautiful!

So, how are you guys liking the iPhone? I've managed to convince Glenn to at least wait for the second revision :)

Sharon said...

I can't imagine waiting 6 hrs for a phone. Mike will have to let us know how it is. Yor fob for Deb is pretty. You will another big finish soon. Can't wait!

Aussie Stitcher said...

LOL at your DH. My DH always says that he has heaps of patience, as he hasn't ever used any. So close to a finish on bordeaux, well done.

You have been busy. You're so close to having this done, you must be thrilled to have two such large ones either finished (PL) or almost there.
