Stitches and Secrets
Glad Tidings is moving along steadily but each time I hold it out to look at the progress I've made, I just don't seem to see as much as I think I should! Oh well. At least I know I'm working diligently on it! My goal is still to have this piece finished by the time DST begins so I need to get really busy! There are just so many of these leaves! I think I will be doing them just a little different than the chart calls for.
Shame, shame, shame on me! I have so many beautiful designs waiting to be stitched from magazines and freebies that I have not yet done! I could say that I will stop buying new designs and only work from all of these plus all my on hand charts that are patiently waiting in line but who would I be kidding!! I may have to cut back due to the economy but just to stop buying charts is enough to make me laugh hysterically!
I have my next 4-5 starts picked out! Now I need to go buy the threads so that I can kit them all up. But I will save them as a surprise for when I start on each of them!
Speaking of surprises, I got a phone call yesterday along with a wonderful surprise! I am so excited but am sworn to secrecy for now. I should be able to divulge everything sometime this week though!
I read Vonna's post and was in total agreement with her! I only get my hair trimmed about every 3 months and get it trimmed shorter than I like so the cut will last longer. I only buy a few new shirts and maybe a pair of jeans once or twice a year. I am very frugal about buying things that pertain to me but I want to buy my hobby supplies! My hobbies make me happy!
Until my next post, stay safe, safe warm and stay well!
