Yippee...this project is completed just this morning and I feel so good as I can clean off my kitchen table. I was afraid I would set this project aside and start something else. I have two other 'major' cross stitch pictures that appear 'doomed' in my WISP stash.
Now, I can begin another WIP which 'haunts' me in the wee hours of the morning.
My next project near completion is assembly of my Log Cabin Quilt squares. I also hauled out my 'Millenium Quilt' consisting of blue-toned star designed fabrics for paper pieced star-patterned quilt. This WIP has taken me 8 years so I vowed 2008 would be a more productive
I have actually finished another crocheted Barbie outfit using Paradise patterns, however I do want to style the hair and make her jewelery before posting the photo.
Has anyone else completed their robin yet? Hopefully this robin will fly off to the frame shop shortly.
HaPpY SpRiNg!

Crazy Patch Anticipation

Since I have been consumed in completing my last Mystery Stitch Along I have been excitedly collecting embellishments for my next project. I am convinced 'hunting' for these crazy patch items is absolutely the most FUN! However I have also found some wonderful 'treasures' for my next 'million' projects. I will have to live to be one hundred to complete all these projects I dream of!
Quite a few wintery Saturday evenings ago, I sewed three blocks with these blue and pink themed fabrics. Hopefully they will be my next project. The colors are definitely different from natural light, and I imagine my next photos will display differently.
Waking up with more fresh snow on the ground I have decided I will spend more time stitching instead of working in my garden...back to complete my spring robin stitch along...only one day or so to go...yippee!!
...please stay posted for my next update.
HAPPY Spring Everyone.


We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing.There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success You have to laugh and find humor every day. You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even know it!There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change. Have no regrets.The elderly usually don't have re- grets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets."It's never too late to be all you can possibly be.
