I also signed up on the wXSw Yahoo group for the Mystery Sampler designed by Helga Mandl and Barbara Ana. The 1st of 4 parts became available today. I have it downloaded and printed, but have not started it. If I remember right the other parts will come out every 1-2 weeks until we have it all. The first part looks like it is going to be really nice. Will try to get a little stitching done on it tomorrow. We are supposed to get some snow tomorrow and tomorrow night, so I will have all day tomorrow to stitch. Had a church meeting cancelled because of the impending weather. Not a bad storm, but most of the ladies in my group are older and we just decided we did not need any of them to fall.
Today was Tuesday and the day I am to stitch, at least one hour, on Pink Blossom Sampler for my friend Sandi. I almost forgot to do it. So I started working on it right after lunch and I bet I had not put more than one or two stitches in and she called. No, she was not calling to remind me to stitch on her present. We talked for awhile and then I had to tell her that I had been stitching on her piece. Then she felt bad that she had interrupted. I think she thinks that it will never get done. I ended up stitching probably 1 1/2 hours on it today. It is such slow progress doing those Rice Stitches and Eyelet Stitches to make the alphabet. Maybe after next week's stitching I will take a picture of the progress.
Working again on Thursday at The Sunflower Seed. Mary that usually works on Thursday has hurt her back (herniated disk), so I may be working several Thursdays. Also Anita is getting ready for Nashville Market the first part of February, so may be working a little more helping her get patterns ready. She will be releasing 8 new designs at that market.
Trying to keep this shorter, so I am off to stitch. Maybe will start the Mystery Sampler.
Happy Stitching to all!!!!
