I do have a finish to show though. Here are the last two pages of Little Book of Stitches. This has been such a fun stitch and it has been enjoyable to watch it grow. Here are all 8 pages. Now, I just have to put it together. I may need some help on that front.
On the weekend, my DH and two sons put a new roof on our house. Rather than play GO FOR - I left town. Beatrice and I took a road trip to visit Dani. Christin was there when we arrived. Dani treated us royally. Lynn popped in for most of Saturday. It was so nice to meet her in person. She is even lovelier than her blog. Dani treated us like queens and spoiled us royally. Since she and I are both going to Weight Watchers, all food was geared for that. I sooo appreciated it.
While there, I started a new piece. This is Autumn Leaves by Prairie Schooler. There is a slight shadow above the row of words. I spent the entire evening working on this row and when I was done realized I was way off and had to frog that entire section. My frogs did not stay in their pond. GGGRRRRRR!!!!
My friend Rebecca put a little post on her blog last week just for me. I am a nutcracker collector and when she saw this she knew I had to have it. Here is my brand new purchase. Isn't it gorgeous.
As you know I did my JBW mittens over 1 on 25 count. Well, Beatrice and I started browsing the HAED site and look what I found!!!! It is now in my hot little hands but I'm still thinking I need my head examined for even considering this. It is 50 pages and over 80 colors!!!!! and over 1 on 25. This is my 10 year 0r even 20 year project. You can check out Beatrice blog for the one she selected.
And now, the end. I see by my comments that I have some new readers. Welcome to you and thank you for stopping by. To my regular readers, thanks so much for your lovely comments even when I cannot comment in return. We are heading off on Saturday to babysit our grandsons for a week while their daycare provider is on holidays and my DS has wireless high speed. I will be stopping by blogs and commenting as much as I can. I am looking forward to seeing all your beautiful stitches and my prayer for this week:
PLEASE LORD, KEEP THE FROGS IN THE POND.
