Notforgotten Farm for a little while now and boy I need it this year after such a cold Winter! It calls for all DMC threads and I spent a good part of my afternoon winding them all up on these little cards. I did make one substitution though. I think I am going to use DMC 3768 on the blue dress instead of 3848. Here they are side by side:
Here is my latest progress on Liam's Sampler....
The Strawberry Sampler to have the girls frame it for me. Then I will gift it to Josh and Laymie for Liam. I hope they like it.
We took the buggy up to our neighbors/very good friends house yesterday afternoon and she surprised me with this gift...
Here is a picture of it from back farther. Now never-you-mind about the wine. I am doing my civic duty to drink the one on the left. It's strawberry-rhubarb wine from Nashoba Winery in Bolton, MA. We bought a bunch of it a couple years ago and if I don't drink it up it will go bad. Oh the trials I must endure..........
Now to confess something I've been struggling with. As you might know I recently became a member of the COTM club at Sassy's Fabby's (That's Color Of The Month). Well anyway...I've seen some of you who receive beautiful linens in the mail and start stitching on them right away. RIGHT AWAY!!! **GASP**
Give me a moment here....*clutching chest*
Ok...I'm alright now.
As you might also have noticed I received a pile of the most beautiful linens from my dear bloggy friend, Sandra (Mimi). I have them all piled up nicely on the chair next to my stitching spot so I can gaze over at them at any time while I stitch. I've refolded them....laid them out nicely.....folded them once again....run my fingers gently over them. I just wouldn't dare stitch on any of it right away. I need proper time to stare at it and walk past it running my fingers over it as I go. Now I ask you, is this weird? Do I need counseling? I even swiped a piece of linen from another project I had all kitted up for "Ah Tis Spring" so I wouldn't have to get in to my new stash. I know....I'm SICK!
I'll leave you with a picture of my little love. I can't wait to see him. Only three weeks!
Thanks for taking a moment to visit with me. Your comments are always treasured!
