I think I got quite a bit done on this one tonight :-) It is really moving along nicely!!
Before I started working on my scheduled project tonight, I first took a few minutes to finish the "W" and add in the little burgundy motifs that I could not get to last night... and I feel better now. My OCD drives me crazy when something is not quite finished!!
I am very excited about this - I pre-ordered the new Mirabilia design, Mermaids of the Deep Blue, today! I love this one - I think several of my recent fabric purchases will work well with this - I love that it has two mermaids instead of one this time!! It is due out next Friday. I also ordered a pair of scissors and a sheath to keep in my "at work" project pack. Then I went over to ebay and was able to scoop up almost all of the Dinky Dyes silks I need for Taj Mahal... Hmmmm... wonder where the bead pack is for that... should have been here by now... (Taj Mahal is by Chatelaine, pictured below...) I also picked up the DMC floss for Woodland Fairy today, since it is only 7/$1.00 at AC Moore right now...
(and, I picked up the 40 ct. Daily Grind by R&R for you, Becky - you are a true friend, and thanks for ordering the silks for us to do this wonderful Jeannette Douglas design together!!
Mike and I went out to dinner at Cactus Jack's tonight, and then off to Best Buy - since Mike had tried two or three of the specialty Mexican drinks, he was feeling good.... he got us a new HD video camera... and got me two DVD sets...3rd Rock from the Sun: Season 1 (which I have already started watching, and am laughing my head off), and Herbie The Love Bug Collection (all four movies!!)
Oh, and a little something pretty in the garden today.... Tall Phlox: Mt. Fuji
Red Sox 4, Angels 3 - until 1:45 AM!! Good thing I can sleep in tomorrow...
