Yesterday was a quiet day. I had hopes to go downtown to the USS Kidd but it decided to rain, so I decided to stay inside. Michael was here and he and I ended up the day with a tutorial on pictures. I'm finally deciding to scan some more old photos and to organize what I have.

On the stitching scene, here's the monthly report on my contribution to the Totally Useless Sal. It looks like a lot, but not quite as bad as it seems. I cleaned out my thread stash and added to the jar. I did some frogging because I couldn't decide on a color for a project. Still, it's interesting to see what the New Moon brings.

I'm going to spoil the surprise for Donna, but while I had the camera at hand I decided to get a snap of what I hopefully will be sending her by the end of the week. No, my frilly, little pink bunny won't be in the package!!!

I pulled the threads for the Butterfly Quaker. The photo on the front of the chart doesn't do it justice. The colors are muted and soft. I may just have to go my LNS, to my drawer and bring the companion home just to see what those colors are like. I'm tempted to stitch them on aida just to have a change of pace and to make the stitching faster. We'll see. I still need to retrieve my personalized sampler from Nouveau Encore.
Until next time, happy stitching.

I didn't look, I promise (fingers crossed behind my back). But if I had looked I would have said, WOW! Those look beautiful. And I can't wait to get them!

The gifts are beautiful!! And your TUSAL progress is great.

P.S. Don't plan on winning that quilt, I just put my name in (LOL).
