Happy New Year! Lots of Hand Dyed Fabrics For Sale!!

I gathered up the two DMC flosses that I needed today, and I got back to work on And A Forest Grew. It moves along quickly, and there are lots of color changes. At this point, it still looks like I have as much floss as I started with! There is more color in it today :-)

To help defray a portion of Angus's huge veterinary bill, I am going to sell off some of my precious hand dyed fabrics... if you want any of these, please let me know. I take PayPal (preferred), but will accept check or money order if you are in the US. Shipping is $1.50 in the US, and just a tad more for multiple purchases. Outside of the US, just let me know - we'll talk :-) (And, thank you so much for your help!!)

I also found a little time in December to work on Blessings Be Thine, 17th Century Irish Garden, And A Forest Grew, and Mermaid and the Sea

January Goals:
1. Work on And A Forest Grew
2. Start Long Dog Mystery Sampler
3. Work on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow

5. Work on Paradigm Lost SAL with Jo
6. Work on Bordeaux Sampler SAL with Anne and Leslie

As for goals for 2007, I really don't think I will set any. I tried doing that in 2005 and 2006, and what happens is that projects come along and sidetrack me, I get into SALs, and those tricky designers release new designs to throw a wrench in all well-intended plans! But, so far I do know that I will be a doing an SAL of Barnabee's Quest with Michelle, Jenna and Andrea in February.... an SAL of Spring Ride with Karen C. in March (is it March, Karen?).... and I decided today with the new release of The Gift of Stitching that I will definitely do the Long Dog Mystery Sampler, even if I don't keep up with it each month. It is about 150 x 250 stitches and is dense stitching... I want 2007 to be a year with less goal oriented pressure... and I will continue on in the Neighborhood RR... and finish my current SALS... and of course, there will be a Mirabilia - there is always a Mirabilia! (Oh, and finish some WIPS, like Angel of Love, Mermaid Heaven, 17th Century Irish Garden, A Christmas Spirit, Mermaid and the Sea... the list is already long!!).

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday! Back to work tomorrow! Angus is doing well - still has the ravenous appetite and now is sleeping with us. It is funny (but sad) to see him bang into everything with that plastic E-collar on!

Stitched on today:
