Well today was a rainy misty day, but headed off to Athens, GA for stitching time with friends. The first Thursday of each month we get together to sit, stitch, eat and chatter. It is a great time with friends.
So now I am home, waiting for the meatloaf to cook and trying to get caught up with the computer things. Computer time is really cutting into my stitching time, but I love blogging and reading blogs and reading the groups messages, one learns so much about what people like to stitch and buy, but it is also an enabling tool for wanting to buy more things for ones self!!! It is also so good to see what new products, designs and classes that are available through out the country and the world.
Below is my jar for the TUSAL, this is one SAL that requires very little from me - I love doing this. I went to Marshall's and bought this great glass container for only $6.00 just for this SAL.
Here is another pompom scarf for one of the gals at work -it is finished, and it is long, we used 2 skeins of pompom.
These next two stitched pieces are for the EGA project - Kissing Pillows - theses will be made up into a small pillow and then they will go, with other pillows, to a military base and will be given to those that are deployed overseas. I believe one is kept by the military personnel leaving after it has been kissed by members of the family and then (I am not sure about this part) the other pillow will be kissed by the soldier and kept by the family.
I feel really strong about doing whatever outreach project I can do, since I love to stitch, knit, sew or whatever - it is something that needs to be shared and I do hope that what I do does make a difference.
So my goal for this month is to get at least 1 ornament done - I have 4 lined up and kitted; I will finish "Tis the Season" (WIP) work on getting the writing stitched on "With My Needle" and some motifs done on Witches Hollow. I could be biting off more than I should but we will see how it progresses - I can always adjust.
Well, off to read some blogs and finish up dinner - have a great weekend everyone.
