Sunday News


I took yesterday as a day off from blogging. I didn't hear from the doctor on Friday as I had hoped to. Maybe I will hear something good by early in the week. I would really like to get on this medicine and have time to get my levels adjusted before the holidays begin and all the busyness that goes along with them!

I used the time to work on some stitching that I recently started. Here is a picture of the Hunt Sampler. What a great piece! Such a smooth and easy stitch. I am loving working on this one! The cover picture shows it done in all one color (navy blue) but I wanted to add some variety and use several colors (like Mindi did) that will fit into our home's color scheme. It's hard to see in the picture but the design in the center of the small medallion is done in green. Some updating to my wish list is in the midst of being taken care as well! Gotta get it ready for dh and the holidays coming up! *big wink*

I also tidied up my crafting goodies! I put away a BIG stack of scrapbooking layouts into albums! Finally! And I sorted through a stack of stitching threads that made their home on the end table of my stitching chair! Now I only have out what I actually need for the current WIP.

Sherry - I love the start on your Hunt Sampler. Changing the colors makes it uniquely yours!

I love this design, and your work on it looks lovely. Doesn't it feel great when we get our stuff organized and accomplished. It always makes me feel free and easy breezy.

I hate working on one color designs. Feel free to use all the colors you want!

I still have a BIG pile of DMC from the Wal*Mart closeout on the dining room table in Nevada. I really want to get it all put away, but realistically that won't happen until after the 14th when we get back from a meeting in Los Angeles. We haven't been there for more than a couple of days since the middle of August! Being there for two weeks seems like a long time, but that means I have a list of projects that could last twice as long.

Good for you, using your time to such good use! Cross stitch and scrapbook organization plus stitching as well? And you have started out very well on this. I can't wait to see the rest of the colors you have chosen for it!

Very nice start on your Hunt Sampler. Can't wait to see it come to life under your needle.
