I was going to try to post during the week last week, but I just couldn't get to it. And then didn't have naything much to say. So I just followed along on all of your posts. I have taken a picutre of my TUSAL jar, but I haven't loaded it onto the computer yet, so maybe that can be an exra post for me during the week. LOL Isn't that terrible?
We finally had some nice weather on the weekend and it wasn't too bad today, but it looks like it's clouding over, so who knows. Summer hasn't really gotten much of a start yet. The flowers are finding it a little hard to thrive without sunlight...just like the rest of us. But it will happen, I have faith. I would just like it to get warm enough so that we can go camping! I am dying to get out there.
Anyway...... Molly is sooooooo much fun to stitch!!! It was hard to take her off the q-snaps last night, I would have happily continued on with her today, but I won't...I'll be good. LOL I just love the little flowers on her dress. I think I'm going to stitch her dress completely before I move onto other parts of the chart. Accept the spot where her hand is looks a little odd and spooky without anything there. But that's ok.
And here's my progress on The Song They Sang...I love this project too, this one is hard to put away as well.
I wish I could just quit my job and stitch all day long. I would LOVE that!! LOL
Didn't get a lot of time to stitch yesterday, as my brother and sister-in-law popped in and ended up staying most of the day, so I didn't really get a chance to start stitching until after dinner. But it was still a nice day. The weather was gorgeous so we sat outside and ended up bbq-ing burgers. So yesterday didn't go as planned, but I did get to do a little on Molly and I love her!!! I left a good portion of the fabric in the scan so that you can see how beautifull mottled it is.
The SAL Sunday has finally arrived! After ordering the charts and the long wait for the fabric and getting the fibres organized....Kati and I are starting our Carriage House Samplings - Molly today! So every Sunday we will put aside what we are stitching and stitch on Molly. And we intend to continue on with the other three of her "girls" as well. So our Sunday SALS are set for at least a couple of years I would think. LOL
So today my plan is to go to the grocery to pick up a couple of things, and then because it's going to be a gorgeous day I'm going to settle out on the patio with my stitching and a couple of girl movies in the portable dvd player. I really should mow the lawn too (hubby is still out of town) but I'm thinking that putting a call in to my brother is in better order and he can do it. LOL
In the mean time I have to show you my new WIP. Carriage House's The Song they Sang. I LOVE stitching this! and I love this fabric. I'm stitching it on the fabric that I order and waited for forever, 32 ct Lugana - Goldspinner! It's BEAUTFUL fabric! And so lovely to work with! OH! I can't say enough. It's mottled beautifully too. I'm sorry that you can't really see it on the scan, but perhaps you'll see it when I take a picture of it with the camera. It's just beautiful. It's the same fabric that I'll be using for the 4 girls as well.
So that's it for today. I hope to show you some progress on our SAL tomorrow!
Have a stitchy day everyone!
This is kind of a hit and run posting that I'm doing here. I'm tired and want to go to bed, but I had to post my finish! wooo hooo. Another of LHN"s ornie's. I love how Diane does her trees. I think it's one of my favorite things about her designs.
Red House in Winter by LIttle House Needleworks - 25 ct lubana 1 over 1
Kati and I connected this week and she's recieved her fabric as well, so we have decided that we will be starting our Sunday SAL again next Sunday. I'm so excited. I've been drolling over the chart now for 2 months, and now we can start them! YEAH
So tonight, I kitted up my new project. I'm going to be starting The Song They Sang by Carriage House Samplings. Another one that I have unexplicably fallen in love with.
I came home today and low and behold, my fabric from the "delight"ful company is here. And it's gorgeous! So the quality is the same, just the wait is much longer. So I guess if I want to order new fabric from Silkweavers, I will just set my mind to the fact that it will take 2 1/2 months to get here, and I should be fine. Hopefully Kati has recieved hers as well and when she gets home from her trip we can start Carriage House's Molly for our Sunday SAL. Anyone want to join us??
Still working on my Red house ornie. Hubby has left to go work out of town again so that means I should have plenty of time to stitch.
