Been lax again about updating this blog......don't really have any excuses to give you this time. Just been enjoying myself with my stitching and anxiously awaiting the phone call from DD announcing that the baby is on his way! No Grandson yet....but should be soon!
In the meantime, I have put the finishing touches onto his blanket. Got the backing sewn on. Decided to go with a soft flannel. Not the best sewing job in the world, but it is on!
Also worked on the PR Mystery "Into the Deep" SAL Part 3. Can't decide if I like the fishies or the seahorses more. They are both soooooo cute! I also have part 4.....it was released really early. Wasn't supposed to be released until the 1st of August. So I think I will save that to do a bit later. I'm still holding off on all the beads for now, so it looks a bit strange, but I'm loving how it is turning out so far!
Received a lovely surprise in the mail the other day! Monique from Tiny Treasures 2 sent me a lovely scissor case. I wasn't expecting a second one! I kind of feel guilty for not stitching her one now (even though we were only supposed to stitch) one for the exchange. I'll have to think of something to thank her.
And I also spent a LOVELY amount of time with my Dance of the Graces. It is soooooo nice to be stitching on this lovely piece once again! And I'm making very good head way too!
Well.....That's it for now folks! Have a wonderful day! Until the next time....
