Dull is Good


There hasn't been alot going on this week so I really don't have much to blog about this time.

Over the past several days, I have worked on The Sparrow and organized my stash a bit. I went through my charts and picked out the ones I really hope to complete this year then set them aside in their own special box. Of course, hoping to do and actually getting them done by years end are two entirely different things.

I am on Page Two of The Sparrow by Tree of Life Samplings. It has been a fun stitch so far and knowing the special meaning it holds just makes me want to pick it up to work on even more. I plan to put my father's initials with year of his birth and death on the bottom line of the alphabet box. I have not quite figured out how I want to stitch up his personalization yet. His name is too long for the space allowed but just his initials leaves a lot of blank space unless I fill it in with some symbols provided on the pattern. I put my initials above the date.

Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.
