Well folks...here it is...Wednesday evening.....exactly one week and 14 hours since I placed my order online for some John James Petite 26s and 28s....and lo and behold...I am still stitching with my icky finish-wearing-off-unknown-maker tapestry needle! Still no fun mail! :o( I shall remember this the next time I decide I need some needles and some instant stash enhancement gratification. Surely takes the excitement out of the stash enhancement.....but I suppose I will look at the bright side...I will be sooooo surprised when the package arrives and then will get all excited about the new stash all over again! ;o)
So I've been trudging on with "the ick needle"...stopping to buff it up a bit here and there with a small cloth that I believe I'm supposed to use for my glasses! Whatever works........so tonight I finished up Mystery Part #2!
I know I keep saying this...but I am really really enjoying this stitch! It's so fun and simple and is coming together right under my hands quickly! And the colors! LOVE them!!!!
Now Part #3 will most likely take a bit more time. There's the big honkin' fully-stitched abode in the center....so I'm hoping I can get thru that and be on Part #4 by the end of the month. Now if I get to Part #4 sooner...well then that'll just be a bonus for me! :o)
In quilting news....I went downstairs this morning to fluff some clothes before work...and sat down at the Bernina and started a new quilt. Should be super simple...I'm using a Moda jelly roll....if you're not familiar, they're die cut 2 1/2" strips of an entire collection. Super easy way to take the tedious cutting/prep work out of a quilt! I found a quilt in the book "Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam Lintott & Nicky Lintott. I think it'll be a fun quick piecer that will showcase this line of fabrics I'm using! Minick & Simpson American Primer jelly roll....lovely sagey greens and wonderful reds, mustard golds and blue. I hope it turns out like I think it will! I'll share pics when there's something to see! Hopefully this weekend!
It surely feels like tomorrow should be Friday...but, alas, tis only Thursday! I keep remembering that quote that says something about doing what you LOVE to do and then you'll never have to WORK another day in your life. So I'm on a quest...a mission...slowly but surely! :o) Do you do what you LOVE? Do you feel like it's WORK or not? I would love to hear from you and how you deal with a job that you maybe don't particularly care to do....or what you did to get out of that sort of situation!!! The hubs has a contracting business.....I keep telling him we'll just line up a few more jobs and I'll retire. ha! at 43! Retire at 43! Wouldn't that be lovely!
I hope your week's been going great and you're getting lots of creative time!
