Present!




I received a gift from Susan saturday! I think it's so beautiful. And it was very timely too. Yesterday the little case that I keep my needles in was broken, I'm sure a little girl had something to do with it. So I'll be transferring my needles to the new needle case.












I've been cruising along on LotM. I've been getting a little antsy about working on something other than rose bushes. Sunday I did a little gridding on it so that I could skip around and also to make sure that my border came out even. I must have counted it about a hundred times, so I'm fairly certain it's correct. But I'll still doubt myself on that until all four corners come out correctly.

Your LOTM is looking so pretty. The roses are so vibrant. I'm itching to get this project but so far have resisted!

Lucky you! I got a present from Susan too. Isn't her stitching wonderful!

I love the fabric you're using. Perfect choice.

Your needlebooks looks great! I really need to make on of those, but I haven't found the perfect chart for me yet.

What a beautiful needlebook! Enjoy. :)

Your Lady of the Mist is off to a great start. I agree with Terri that you chose the perfect fabric! :)

I broke down and bought the LOTM pattern today. I had to buy some mermaid patterns for the RR anyway and figured I might as well save on the shipping and get them all at once! Watching your progress really makes me want to stitch on her!

And the needle case is gorgeous - lucky you! :)
