I am getting close to being ready for Christmas. Oldest is coming home from college tonight and the Christmas program starts at church this evening. If I can get my candy out today, it will be a great day. If not, there is always Monday...
Thanks for the encouraging words. Yes, lets finish Elizabeth in 2015 Pamela! I think Harvest Sampler will get done before the end of the year. I am able to take it with me when I go certain places and have lots of time. Or I work on it when I don't feel like stitching on the pilot piece.
I was disappointed that I did not post every day in November, but I realized too late that I could not stitch on my pilot project and Elizabeth and do my normal life. What is a normal life anyway? Elizabeth has returned to the basement as Christmas decorations are up. Once I get all the pilot stitching done, she will come back up and get my attention. My dd is disappointed that I never made myself a Christmas stocking. I have the pattern, but where is the time?
I bought this at the Des Moines quilt show this year and decided it would make a great carry along project. It did! All I meed to do is the blanket stitch around the edge. The design is by Darlene Smith of One Wing Wool out of Minnesota. Here is a link to her website: onewingwool.com
I have been creative every day, even if I don't post....Here is my progress on Harvest Sampler. I love when I get to adding the beads although it means I can no longer carry the piece around. I have spilled beads at a coffee house once. What a pain!
