Hearts and Flowers

It got very hectic around here from the end of the week and all the way into the weekend! Hopefully life will begin to get back to normal a bit now!

I am not much of Valentine's Day or frilly hearts type person but this new design of Beth's has me doing flips! It is a definite must for me to get! I just love this for our bedroom (which I hope to begin re-decorating this year). This design could be given in a romantic nature or just something to give a good friend.

So far I haven't kept up with my 2009 stitching schedule very well. I have the weekends set aside to work on Christmas ornaments and I have yet to even begin on one! It seems like something always keeps me busy. I assigned the second week of each month to work on my WIP, Victoria's Quaker but the week slipped by without my noticing it! Fridays have been set aside as my AAFG SAL day at Let's Stitch and I haven't been able to pull that out yet this year either! I feel like all my good stitching intentions went up in smoke this month! It seems that after the Christmas holidays, it always takes me the month of January (or a least a good chunk of it) to get back my life back on track and back to some of form of normalcy. I put a calendar up on my blog and am hoping that will give me the added nudge or even just an extra reminder that I need!

*edited* I just looked at my calendar again and I haven't missed the second week of the month! So now if I can manage to pull out my VQ sampler, I can work on it as intended this week! Yea!

That is a very sweet pattern Sherry :) I bet it will look sweetly in a newly decorated bedroom!
So far I've been going gangbusters on my new "schedule" to try to do a rotation of sorts - it has never worked for me before...but it sure has the past couple of weeks. I hope that you find your footing with yours soon and that you get some time to work on your WIPS :)

It is a charming project! You'll have fun stitching that one : )

I love that pattern. You did a fantastic job on it.

Rotations? What are those? LOL I always mean to start but then there is always something else that just HAS to be stitched or finished. Good luck with yours.

How cute is that design? Thanks for sharing it. I am always amazed at you gals who have many projects going at once. That just does not work for me. I'm always too anxious to finish something so I can go on to the next.

Hey Sherry! Don't fret about what you haven't done and celebrate what you HAVE gotten accomplished! Stitch without obligation and just enjoy, my friend!

LOVE the chart. That's definitely going on my list of "gotta haves!"
