Some pictures

October 30, 2007

Here are the two bibs that I made for my brother and sister-in-law for when their first grandchild, who won't even be born until May, comes to their house to visit. I think that they are a little excited about the addition to the family!
"If you think I'm cute...you should see my grandma" and "I got my good looks from my grandpa" Yes we are a somewhat vain family!

Here is my progress on Kaleidoscope. I am looking forward to starting the colour!
And last but not least here is my progress as of last Friday on Pretty Pumpkins (Glendon Place) . I did not get much done the previous week but made up for it this time around. I think I prefer stitching on the bright orange pumpkin parts more than the duller green leaves.
I worked today on backstitching "Its good to be Queen" and her throne is assuming some definition.
This week we start on the big Cirque des Cercles/ Paradigm Lost SAL. That one is going to be fun..and will take up Wednesday's stitching time...with PP on Fridays. Maybe I should just assign days to the rest of my works in progress as well!

I had a very pleasant vist with Jeannette Douglas at the Creative Festival in Toronto on Sunday. Other than seeing her I was a little disappointed with the amount of cross stitch at the show. But if you were a quilter, scrapbooker, rubber stamper or in the market for a sewing machine or a huge sewing machine quilting thing, I suppose you would have enjoyed yourself.

Dan took me out for lunch later and that was fun. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory which we had not visitied in about 17 or 18 years!

The bibs are so cute. and it looks like a nice chunk of PP done.
I love the spaghetti factory and I haven't been there in a long time either.
I started PL.

My sampler stitching pal is halfway thru "Kal" and it is a wonderful explosion of colour. It's been fun watching it come along. She's really enjoyed the piece.

I didn't know that the Spaghetti Factory was still around. I haven't been there in years. Yum!!

The bibs are very cute!

Ann I'm constantly amazed at how much stitching you get done each week!
