Saturday Update

Time for an Emma #2 update! The bouquet of roses in her hands is done! And all the purple flowers are done. I only have 4 shades of pink left, then backstitches, "lace" and beads. And personalization. If you want to see what this looks like, look under labels for Emma's Garden - you'll see my first finish. This is a Told in a Garden design by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum. There's a Facebook SAL this weekend, and I did the purple stitches during the baseball game last night. Let's hope I can be that productive today!



BoInk week 7 - green and blue are done for this motif. I have red that needs to be added tomorrow. I think I'll go back to framework stitching after the red is done, because my printer is out of ink and I need to print more pattern pages!




I think my lack of ink is keeping me from starting new projects. I'm avoiding the Dove Love finish again. I've convinced myself I can't work on it for the SAL because I have to post update pics, and my grandmother is on Facebook and might see it. Yeah, that's it. I'll be back to work on it on Monday, I promise.

No more information on the house than what was in my whiney post on Thursday. BTW, my gift from DH arrived - Esspresso Bark and yummy truffles from a friend's candy shop. I tried to find a website for her (you know how I love to plug my friends), but I couldn't. If you're in the western Washington area, search Sweets, Treats and Designs in Tacoma. You will not be sorry! Jeri makes her own "barks", and retails high-end chocolates from all over the country. She also has organic, foody-smelling lotions available.

We have busy-ness today - off to Walmart optical to do a follow-up on my contacts and get Hallie's glasses adjusted (I'll do another post about that), then Costco. And do you know, my lawn does not mow itself???

Hey Girl! Don't sweat the dove love or starting another piece. Your blog and updates are fabulous and you've inspired me to show my works in progress because I love to see yours! Good luck with the house and I'm glad I'm no where near that chocolate shop I'm hormonal and it might get ugly.
