Tomorrow is going to be a busier than average Sunday. No naptime for me! Two services in the morning and then back at 4PM for choir practice for a special service at 6PM. I'll do okay unless I'm not home for Downton Abbey. I'm on the preorder list--the DVD comes out Feb. 7.
My LNS closed in December, so I'm using this time to clean out the stitchy closet and to finish long term projects. The big one for this year is to finish the LHN ornies. I've only bought two stitchy pieces in the last month. One is one I'll never finish-maybe never start- but I wanted it here in case I got all inspired. It's from HAED and is the Sistine Chapel. It's huge, of course, but I so remember sitting in the Chapel, looking around and thinking of all the history there and of Michaelangelo lying on his back, paint falling into his face, completing that masterpiece.
The other is just one of those things I wanted to do. It's "Southern Belle" by Bucilla. Real simple. Along the lines of Paula Vaughan. I think it has something to do with being a true Southern Belle. I'm going to add to it by doing some beading, etc. There is one thing I have to change. The lady sitting on the right: no SB would be caught sitting like that. I'm going to re-chart it so that she's sitting like a lady. Also there aren't many colors called for. I'm thinking I'll change some of them. Okay. I'm a romantic.
Have any of you stitchy buddies ever had a stitchy garage sale? I have SO much stuff here and I'll never use it. I thought of donating it to the women's prison at St. Gabriel. If any of you have a wish list, point me to it. I'd love to help you out.
So much for this Saturday. Hope you all have great weeks and see you all later!
