Today was the first day of school. Only 184 more left.... LOL! (I'm kidding...I don't start counting down this early). All three of us had a great day. I am especially glad that it was such a good day for Jake. He had a rough start last year, even though it all ended up turning out okay. He has a fantastic second grade teacher. He really likes her, and our families know each other well, so that makes it even better.
I have been stitching like crazy since I last posted. I finally finished Bird in the Bower. I had run out of one of the NPIs.
I also decided to stick with the 36 ct. 1 over 2 for Shores. I am loving this now. The coverage is better than I first thought. I tried stitching a portion of it with 2 strands and decided that I liked the 1 strand better. I would like to stitch a block of this each month and perhaps finish it before school starts again next year. That is my goal for now anyway.
I have also stitched a little on Molly. There are some designers that I pretty much like anything they create. Kathy Barrick-Deiter is one of those. There is something about her designs that I am just drawn too. (Not to worry, Siobhan, I know YOU are her #1 stalker, I mean, fan! LOL!). I wish she would design a boy with a dog to go with Molly and her cat. I have emailed and begged. :)
(iPhoto is not cooperating with me today...sorry about the sideways picture)
I have also worked on Quakers and Quilts and started Nora Corbett's Sunflower Fairy in the newest Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine. I will show photos of both of those next time.
Not much else to report. Everyone here is complaining they are hungry (they expect me to work AND cook dinner, what gives?), so I guess I will go see what I can rustle up for supper.
Hope all of you are having a great week!!
Until next time....
