Ahhhhh......the weekend is finally here!!! Thus my reasoning for posting late. With it being Saturday, it means that I could get to sleep in and rest from this past week and the hubby and kids are all home too. But I LOVE having my family all home!!!
Now....on to my daily Advent gift. I can't believe how quickly this month has gone by. We all say that on our Stitcher's Garden board when opening our Advent gifts. We look so forward to Dec 1 for the start of our Advent Exchange but then realize how quickly the days are going by.
Today I got the BBD Wild Lilies chart and all the Sampler Threads to stitch it. Now to go find some fabric in my stash so I can stitch it!! I'm sure I've got something in there that will work.
While out shopping with my daughter yesterday, I picked up 2 "Frog Closures" to add to our Christmas jackets. Now on the pattern, it called the "jackets" a "kimono". So I thought this white frog closure would be a nice added touch to the front of the jacket/kimono. It is made of white braid but still looks very nice on the royal blue fabric. Here is what it looks like from what I could find on the web.
After enjoying a nice lunch out and going to see Big Hero 6 movie, I'm ready to spend the remaining evening stitching on my iStitch Advent SAL!!!! WOOHOO
Have you already started thinking of what project or projects you want to stitch this coming year? I have. I am making a list of everyone that I plan on stitching an ornament for, and I will cross each person off that list AFTER the ornament is stitched and completely finished with a backing. I hope to stitch 2 each month along with 2 days of the JN Ornamental Advent. And I'm sure there will be at least SOME BIG OLE PROJECT that gets stitched. I don't like saying the other way so I just say BOP! So get your thinking caps on and start making a plan for things that you want to complete this next year. There is no stitching police out there but I do like to have a plan laid out ahead of time. Must be the military wife in me for the planning! hehe
