I spent a while today working on the gift I started last night - it is belated and has a long way to travel, so I want to get it done. That included trips to a couple of crafts stores on my way home from work this afternoon to get just the right finishing materials. I will get it done this weekend, as I made a lot of progress. When I put that aside tonight to start my regular stitching, I easily talked myself out of Mystery IX. I wasn't in the mood to spend all the necessary time to remount it on the big Q-Snaps. So, I dug out The Mermaid and the Sea, which hasn't had any attention in about a month now. I just love stitching this one. I started on the border in the corner tonight, and realized it is not a tedious border at all.. which is good, because there is a lot of border that will need to eventually be stitched on this one.
I forgot yesterday to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who commented and emailed me about the By the Bay Needlearts freebie that I was looking for it. I have it now! Boy, did I get a lot of help from you ladies - thank you!!! If I can ever help you, please let me know!! Thank you also for the lovely comments on the Peppermint Rose fob :-) The chart was a GWP (gift with purchase) from CATS - directly from Nan who was a guest in Silver Needle's booth. It's not a freebie chart, but maybe it can still be obtained through Silver Needle? I got a few emails already asking about it.
Ever wonder who reads your blog? I sure do! It seems that new people keep popping up daily now.
