The new kit, evenweave fabric and floss that I ordered have arrived! Now I have even more projects to work on.
I can't show you the kit for my son's wedding sampler as I think he looks at this blog every once in a while, so that will have to be secret stitching. You can see it peeking out below the fabric and floss. I will give you small peeks at the stitching every once in a while.
The light blue evenweave fabric and most of the floss is for this Christmas Stocking for my future daughter-in-law. I found this when looking through my magazine stash. She is a veterinarian so I thought she would like all the animals around the tree. I had most of the floss needed in my stash.
I won't be starting that stocking for a while as the wedding sampler is more time sensitive. Today I think I will prep the fabric for the wedding sampler. I may even put in a few stitches. I will have to put October Morning aside once again, as I think I want to use that hoop for the wedding sampler.
I have been thoroughly enjoying stitching the stocking for my son-in-law. Look at how much progress I have made already.
Since I have this week off from school for Winter Break, I have also been very busy cutting more beige fabric. I just ordered some more fat quarters as I realized that I didn't have near enough, but I have already cut up 16 of the fat quarters that I had into the pieces I need.
I recently finished reading "Message in a Bottle" by Nicholas Sparks and was reminded of why I don't love reading his books. I had wanted to read a physical book not an e-book and I think my mom has almost all of his books. She hasn't read all of them, but she has kept buying them. I don't love reading these books, because I am always waiting for the other shoe to drop. It always does and I read the book with dread. I had thought I would just keep reading through all the books mom has, but I just don't want to read another right now. Maybe in the summer when the sun is shining and the world is not so bleak, I could enjoy reading another of his books.
I went on to read "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" by J.K.Rowling, just to have something light to read. That is finished and now I am debating what to read next....continue with the Harry Potter series (always a good choice) or "My Life from Scratch" by Gesine Bullock-Prado which my son gave me for Christmas.
He also gifted me this author's cookbook "Let Them Eat Cake"
Well that is all for now.
Thanks for stopping by!
