A New Treasure!

When my friend Mary, was here for a visit a few weeks ago, of course, we had to do a little shopping. I found this really neat box, that screamed 'Take Me Home! Found it at Joann's and it was very reasonably priced! I decided that I would keep all of my projects for stitching ornaments and smalls this year. My goal is get back to getting lots of ornaments stitched in '09! I have been away from doing that for a couple of years, and this is the year, to have plenty. I hope I keep up that momentum, because I have a lot of other stitching in the works, many of them larger projects to keep me busy. But if I am good, and do some every month, then that will get me away from doing larger projects, and the result will be at least a few finishes! LOL

On another note, I just spoke with my darling baby daughter! She had a doctor's visit today and all went well. She is at around 20 weeks along. I got so tickled at her yesterday, because she was more then a little disturbed at some of the changes, random aches and funny pains going on in her body. Guess it is natural for a first time mother, to go through this, and fret about 'What If'? I was so glad she was able to go over these things with the ob gyn today, and put her worries to least for today!!
I am out of here for now, have a full day of packaging orders and getting them ready to go to the post office tomorrow! I love my job!:)
Thanks for visiting!

Windy and Rainy Day

I really do need to get going today, but wanted to post my latest finish. It is Holiday Farm from Prairie Moon, stitched on Lakeside Vintage Maritime White, 40 ct, with Weeks and dmc! A fun stitch, but took longer then I anticipated, probably because of all of the color changes. See those quilt-looking blocks in the border? 7 colors in each one, egads!!!
After I run my errands, it will be a busy day in the shop, packaging and invoicing orders. I might even get the desire to organize a bit, now that would be a good thing!
Thanks for stopping by!
