Finished Finish

The sewing machine is back! Today I tried my hand and made two flanged pillows for the first time.





Probably will not win any awards but in do time I think I will get better at it. Believe me I have a pile of things that need to be finished finished!!! On the stitching front since I am going to be making a change in my rotation I am trying to get seasons done. I have one more block then I need do the outlining and then it will be finished. So stay tuned for an update in the next couple of days. Yesterday I made a trip to House of Stitches in Laporte to pick up some materials for some ornaments. Had to order some floss that they where out of so I will have to make another trip in a few weeks when they get in. Which will be ok since when I got home the patterns for the boston terriers had arrived so I will need to get some linen and probably some dmc to do those. Then I really need to go on the a statsh diet for awhile but of course the Mirabellia tree just came out for 2008 so I will probably need to get it.
On the blogging front sorry I have not been leaving comments I really need to get better about that but be assured I am reading them on a daily basis. Everyone is so inspiring!
Well I need to do some things for my ega meeting this tuesday, then I get to stitch and watch the Bears. Hoping for a win since it seems the chicago baseball teams are not having that much luck at all.
Until next time,
May you be blessed with stitches,
Karol
