What a drag that the weekend is drawing to a close! It was a great Sunday...the sun was shining, which means the remnants of our snowfall from yesterday melted off in huge sliding clumps! Heck..I bet it'll all be gone tomorrow! YAY!
So it was a nice relaxing day.
There was baking....The hubs requested homemade peanut butter cookies...
I was in the mood to bake a cake from scratch.......complete with chocolate buttercream frosting...
Yum! I resisted plunging my fingers in the bowl after the photo shoot! ;o)
There was kitchen clean-up.....there was napping.............there was laundry...and also some stitching.
Another progress shot on the Blackbird Designs piece! I plan to have the first installment of the mystery done tomorrow! YAY!
I probably could have gotten more done tonight....but what a DRAG! My NEEDLE! UGH! It started dragging through the linen...losing it's slickery finish..and YUCK that's a horrid feeling under hand! I don't know exactly what type of needle it was...I need to keep better track of the needles that work for me and those that don't! I know it was a blunt tapestry....which made it difficult to feed thru the stitches on the back. I hate that! But even more I hate when the slickery finish wears off! So tell me....do you have a most very favorite needle for your stitching? If so, please share why you like it, what brand it is, etc. I would love to be armed with some experienced stitcher knowledge before I purchase more needles. I have them laying all around the house, but if there's one or two better than the others....I'm all over it! Would love to hear your needle preferences!
I'm off to tidy up a bit before heading to bed. I hope everyone had a glorious Sunday!!
