Suzannah, Sergei & a prize

Didn't get as much time to stitch yesterday or even last week for that matter.  Had lots of time to sit and stitch this weekend, but when I sat down to do so it was more of a vegetative state and playing in the computer.  It's so nice to have a new laptop where I don't even really have to get up to do anything anymore.  I have it on the table next to my stitching chair and that's pretty much what I did.  Surfed and shopped.  Bought some fabric...made wishlists at various online shops that I'm pretty sure I will going back to in the next little while and making good on all my wishes. Just didn't have much of a mojo. 

I did manage though to almost get the skirt done on Suzannah.  Still have the thinner lines to fill in and then that will be done and it will be on to other parts.  That skirt is a chore!  But it'll all good.

Sergei got some more work on him done too.  But again...not as much as I would have liked too.  I'll be working on him more this week...and hopefully be close to a finish by the next time I post.

I received my giveaway prize from Carol today in the mail. Canada Post and the US Postal Service worked well together because it didn't take long at all for me to get the package.  I snagged the picture off of Carol's site so that you can see what I got.  I know you're all jealous!  and those Raspberry Cremes!!!!!!  Don't even ask!!!  They are yummmmmyyyyyy and I don't think that they are going to last the night...let me tell you!  :)

Going to take a shower now, have a little dinner and then I'm settling in with my fatman!  :)

Daffycat said...

Wow, both pieces look fab, Barbi. I really love the alphabets in Paulette's designs ~ so pretty.

Nice prize to receive from Carol...I could just pull your hair =P

Carol said...

Glad your giveaway prizes arrived safely (and relatively quickly--shocking!!), Barbi :) Enjoy!!

I know just what you mean about not stitching as much since you got your new laptop. Since I got my iPad in December, I've been the same way--just shopping more and wasting time. Oh well--it makes us happy, right?

Lovely WIPs you have going there! I'll bet you'll make a lot of progress this week!!

Hi there Barbi ,Barb here, Oh I think it must be slumpitis as I too have been playing with this "confuser" and not getting any stitching done. Love the twirling skirt she is beginning to look rather smart.
