I remember in my last post I said something about listing seven things you might not know about me but I'm still trying to come up with that many. Maybe by the next time I post here I will have enough to tell you.
I worked a bit on MBT Great Is The Faithfulness the other day and by the end of that day I was ripping out all I thought I had accomplished. I counted wrong somewhere, so I put it away and pulled Commandments out of my basket. I haven't stitched too much on it but I'm working a little on the border.
Sorry about the wrinkles. I just spread it out on the sofa and took a quick pic. I feel like I'm crawling along with my stitching now that I am home from GA. A girl could get very comfortable with sitting in a hotel room all day with nothing to do but stitch! Imagine the dent I could put in my WIP basket!
Back in January I tucked a free pattern away in my new stash cupboard offered by Jennie Lynn on her blog: Appleseed Prim. I have practically an entire bolt of muslin so I decided to get it out today and make this little guy.
I had a tough time trying to stuff his spindly arms and legs but once I got going it wasn't so bad. My poor old arthritic thumb thanked me for not making more than one today. Thanks Jennie for offering this freebie!
I've read many blogs of those of you who love to watch Downton Abbey. I hadn't seen a single episode before so when season two started I decided to see what all the hub-bub was about. I will say when I finished watching the first show I still didn't see what the excitement was but after watching the second one I was hopelessly hooked like the rest of you! Now remember I don't watch soap operas. Can't stand them. So when I found myself waiting impatiently for the next Sunday evening to get here I was a little surprised at myself. I shouldn't compare this program to a soap opera although I call it; a soap opera with class. After season two was over (and that went by all too quickly, didn't it?) I felt like I had missed something by not having watched season one. So.....lookie here what Masterchief ordered for me!
Now I can sit and watch both seasons without interruption or being forced to wait a week until the next show! Oh I DO love my Masterchief! I do... I DO!!!
That's it for today friends. I plan to sit myself right down in my comfy stitching spot on the couch and stitch until my legs are numb. That doesn't take long either because for some reason my most comfortable stitching position is sitting Indian style but I need to get up every once in a while to resume blood flow.
I hope the remainder of your weekend is full of stitches like I want mine to be.
