Instead of stitching

Thursday, November 29, 2007

I was bemoaning to myself that I have not seemed to have done very much stitching this week and was wondering why that was.

This morning I was thinking about the past week and realized that although I have not been stitching I have been busy ...here is what I have been doing instead of stitching.

Friday evening, 5 of the Cobourg stitchers came over. Three people stitched and 3 of us assembled ornaments. These are mine. (notice there is a definite CdC theme going on there!)


On Sunday I visited with friends for lunch and stitching in Uxbridge. Truth be told, there was more lunching and visiting than stitching happening!

Monday, I realized that we are having company this weekend, starting on Friday and since this is our Christmas with these people, I had better get some decorating done...so here is the tree. That was Monday's job!Tuesday, I went as usual to see Joyce and I did stitch a bit on Kaleidoscope. Love those colours!Wednesday is my regular CdC day but instead of working on it, I made flatfolds and here are my finished products from that endeavour!These are the flatfolds that we made on Wednesday afternoon under Barb's expert and patient teaching. Left to right...Barb's Prairie Schooler, Anne's Santa from a magazine, Judie's angel also from a magazine, my two M-designs Christmas Trees, Judy's elf with a candy cane, Adriana's snowmen, Beatrice's M-designs Christmas tree and my little Stitchopolis Rodeo.
I was so intent on learning a new skill that I neglected to take pictures of the process and our industriousness but I think Beatrice will have some on her blog one of these days http://stitchingwithaview.blogspot.com/

Lovely ornies and Flatfolds :) You all did a great job!
And I must say...the more I see you stitch on Kalidescope, the more I want to stitch it myself!
