When Masterchief checked the mail yesterday he only brought one thing back to the house. I was SO EXCITED to find that it was for ME. I won Marly's giveaway at Samplers and Santas. WOO-HOO!!
She gave me three issues of Cross Stitch Sampler (now OOP) from 1994. With these three magazines I can complete the Bargello Sewing Case. Marly also included the necessary threads and a few other charts. I have to admit I feel a bit intimidated by this project. I think it might be a bit above my skill level but I really want to give it a shot. Thank you so much Marly!
After ripping out the mistake in my Eliza Evans sampler I think I've made good progress.
The picture beside it came with the chart and is what my final piece
I completed the I block on ABC Tapestry and even got a little start on the J block.
I have been reading in alot of your blogs of the new year bringing on the need to become more organized...going through your stash...picking out what you probably won't do and pulling out the scores of what you
So I stood there and sent a text to Masterchief asking him to come help me in the basket aisle. He soon came to my aid and climbed the big metal ladder that was right there to fetch it for me. I know, I know...we common folk aren't supposed to be climbing those ladders but what's a girl to do when there aren't any associates in sight?
The purpose in getting this basket was to consolidate the two baskets I already have crowding me out of my precious spot on my end of the couch.
You can see how well that worked for me! *rolls eyes* I just found more stuff to put in them! Pay no mind to the box of peanut butter Cheerios. Did you know they made them? Oh. My. Goodness. They are sinfully delicious!
Lastly....my Masterchief is constantly telling me how "it's all about me". I am spoiled beyond belief! He picked this up for me while at Lowe's getting the supplies for the addition........
|Mock Cherry Pie|
It's not the prettiest pie I've ever made but mmm...mmm...good! It's made with cranberries and raisins. If you close your eyes and take a bite you'd never know it didn't have cherries in it. This is my mother-in-law's recipe.
That's it for today friends. Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already. Just leave a comment on THIS POST ONLY. I will announce the winner on Friday.
Hope your week is filled with sunshine and stitches!
