I got an email from Isabelle today, letting me know that a small RAK that I made for her has arrived (finally) on the slow plane to Paris... I have wanted to stitch this little fob design since it came out in The Cross Stitcher (UK) last year (I think July 2005).... and I ended up ordering one of Silkweaver's scrap bags (I cannot recall what they called this option) during their Halloween sale... and couldn't resist one of the gorgeous solos in that pack - I just had to play with it! So earlier this month I spent an afternoon putting the fob chart on a small piece of the solo, and it ended up being a RAK for Isabelle - as I was working on it, it just seemed to suit her so well! Now, if the birthday package I sent to another friend in the UK on the same day would just arrive, all would be well!
Wow, it is amazing how mild December has been here in the Northeast!! I hope it lasts for awhile! And... welcome to the Boston Red Sox, D. Matsuzaka! (I won't even try to spell his first name) - better known around here as the $105 Million Dollar Man!!! And, welcome back Doug Mirabelli!!!!!!! (Couldn't resist sharing some Red Sox joy!)
**I cannot post comments to many blogs right now that use Beta Blogger, so I apologize - I have visited your blogs and have tried to comment, but if you also do not take annonymous comments, then I cannot leave anything right now. I don't want to switch to Beta Blogger as I have heard horror stories and don't want to switch to a plain template again. I know others are going through these same difficulties. Maybe Blogger will fix it, I hope so.
Stitched on today: Finished a gift (whew!!) and An Emblem of Love
