Well so far, 2012 seems to be the year of the WIP or UFO. And They Sinned was a WIP and still is.
I'm happy to say I got the tree out of the way. Now I just have to fill in the leaves and apples, etc. Ugh. Why do I like A&Es when I hate stitching trees? lol!
So far, the tree looks very appropriate for the time of year, yes? :D
And They Sinned is going slowly. I seem to have committed to many things this year, so I haven't been able to concentrate on just one project. I think it's playing with my mind.
Loraine and I have decided to do an SAL on the Betsy Morgan Toy Chest Etui, another of my WIP/UFOs. Do you remember that project??? You have to go back all the way to June 2010 to find when I took the class. That's a long time ago! Loraine took the class more recently, so hopefully she remembers things better than I do. I'll be counting on that, Loraine!
Anyway, we decided to stitch a page a week. Here is this week's SAL, the needlebook.
Isn't it pretty? I love the colors! Betsy says to use just one thread even on the satin stitch. Makes for a rather sparse look, but Loraine said Betsy likes it that way -- makes it look old and well loved.
Our SAL might be a bit hap hazard for a while since I have to do some model stitching again. I hope I manage to keep this SAL going! I'd really love to finish this project!
The boy child had another audition this past weekend. This time it was for what is probably his first choice in colleges, up in Boston. Here is a view from the hotel.
Pretty cool, huh?
The boy child thought he did pretty well at the audition. Fingers crossed he gets in!
With the chilly weather, Mia has been doing her best to burrow into the warmest places she can find. She loves piles of the boy child's laundry.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. It always amazes me how many blogging friends I have and how much of a pleasure it is to talk with you all and to meet new blogging friends as well. I hope everyone has a great week! If you're in a cold area of the world, follow Mia's lead and stay warm!
PS: Did anyone watch the Australian Open final?? WOW!
