Caught up!!

Hi Everyone!

As of this moment in time, I'm caught up in my SALs that I started this year! YAY!! Tomorrow will be another story...LOL.

First is the Friendly Stitchers yahoo group SAL with specialty stitches. The Algerian Eye is the most recent stitch at the bottom.

Second is the Star Sampler from Periphaeria. This is such a lovely stitch and if you don't like the colors I've used, she has examples of other colors you might like. Here is my progress so far...the first and second parts. The patterns are still available on her site, just click on her name.

I"m supposed to meet Astrid tomorrow at our LNS for some shopping, a quick stop at Peace a Pizza for lunch, and hopefully we'll find a spot to get some stitching done. I'm looking forward to this since Astrid and I have met a couple of times and we've talked we've been friends for ages! And...any excuse to get out of the house and stitch with someone who shares my passion is GREAT in my book! We are supposed to get quite a bit of rain tomorrow...but I'm like the postman...neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail, nor dark of night will keep me from my appointed stitching!! (I even drove to Sonya's house toward the end of a hurricane to stitch once!! LOL)

I've been so busy going to doctors appointments I've decided I'm going to put "quick change artist" on my next job resume...and I was thinking that I've stripped so much lately for complete strangers (even if they ARE Doctors) that I'm beginning to feel like an exotic dancer (I wonder if this is how they got started?)....I should be getting paid for this don't you think? I wonder what they would think if I had sequins sown on my underwear and brought in my own cd player with burlesque music playing? guess is they would reach in the nearest closet for the strongest straight jacket they could find and ship me off to the funny farm. LOL Ok, this is a sign that I need some off I go! Have a good night everybody! *Hugs*
