I went back to Mystery IX again tonight, with about a week left in the month, and I want to get this part finished. If I stay motivated, I will finish Part 8 this weekend and then I hope to do some of the beading on MTM too. I think Mystery IX is beautiful!
Thank you to everyone who left nice feedback about Blessings Be Thine. Yes, it is a Blackbird Designs chart. It is from 2005, and is not a Loose Feathers Club chart. If you cannot locate it, I believe that Colonial Needleworks has it in stock. If you email Sue at the shop, she can help you out. She takes mail orders, and she carries the R&R linens as well. I am using Sugar Maple Fabrics' Acorns & Chestnuts belfast for mine.
Q. What do you keep your WIPs and other stitching supplies in when traveling?
A. This is what I like to use - plastic file folders that either snap closed like this one does or have a string that ties it closed. I prefer the snap ones since my cats like to chew on the ones with the string closures. I get them at WalMart and they are quite inexpensive. This one has Blessings Be Thine in it.
I feel terribly about how long it has taken me to post this. I received this lovely belated birthday gift from Kathy a few days ago. She sent me this cute little ort bag that I can put on the side of my chair - I think I will bring it to my office! I have it on top of one of my stash cabinets in this photo. And, she sent me some nice little hand-dyed fabrics too! Thanks Kathy! I am so sorry to hear her sad news about her grandfather passing away. Hugs to you!!
My flower for the day to my stitching pals is: Daylily: Always Afternoon
