It's been a week since I posted pictures of the lovely Jenna and her dress-to-be and guess what? She went back to the bridal shoppe on Tuesday and tried on a few more and found one that she absolutely loved. So my favorite turned out to be her second favorite.
And she bought this gown:
She looks like a princess, don't you think?
On the stitching front, not much is happening. I futzed around with Beatrix Potter and that's about it. I should take a picture and post it cause there is significant progress from the last time I posted but not much progress this week. I just couldn't get warm and all effort went to trying not to freeze in my corner of the couch. One evening, I complained to my DH and he told me to turn up the heat...DUH!!! Well, I checked out the thermostat and it was 58 degrees in the house! Geez, we could have built a snowman in the family room...it was SO cold even with a fire in the fireplace insert.
I really looked forward to stitching on Friday night but I was so tired when I got home. I put in a few stitches on Bea but it wasn't any fun so I went to bed. I slept 10 hours!
Today, I had to do some housekeeping cause I didn't do much this week. While I was at it, I decided to re-organize my stitching stuff. What fun I had fondling stash. I also realized that I am a stash glutton. I have more stash than I will EVER be able to stitch. But I can't part with any of it. I put together my stitching basket and put some other things away in my Wip box.
My stitching basket has the following things in it:
- Beatrix Potter
- Heirloom Wedding and Heirloom Christmas (I'm swapping out some of the bands for the wedding sampler)
- True Virtue
- A bag full of Blackbird Designs (Blessings & Kind Wishes, Where My Heart Blooms)
- Remember Me - Cricket Collection
- And a bag full of Christmas ornaments to stitch for the Cadet and Lovely Jenna.
I think this will keep me busy for a long time.
Well, I best be cleaning the bathrooms now so I will write more later. Stay warm!
