Needles in my Sleeve
Thursday, February 22, 2007
Well, I decided to do some bead work on Celtic Autumn. And boy, do I need a tacky bob. Must.......get.......tacky.......bob....... One false move and beads all over the couch. Luckily, that did not happen tonight. But the kitties were curious. I also finished Valentine Medley by Heart in Hand. And I saw that The Trilogy came out with Easter Line-up so I bought it today at Silver Needle. I am still waiting for the fabrics to come from Silkweaver, I can't wait to see them.

The frogs got me
I must have frogged that A in Autumn 5 times. Weird how that can keep happening in the same place. And why do they call it frogging anyway? I can think of another name to call it. Well, since this is my 2nd post today, I'll keep it short. I have finished the head of the lady and the Autumn minus the beads. I love this design. And a million thank yous to whoever it was who did the conversion to the oranges. Great job.
I won, I won!
I am so excited! I won 1st place in the small category for Silweaver's stitchers showcase for Haunt the Night Away. Yea!!!! I had to work all weekend so I didn't even think to look to see if they had made the announcement. My friend Sue was so funny, she was more excited than I was and she called to tell me I had won. The vm she left was awesome. She's so fun. The prize is 20, 9 x 13 cuts of my choice of fabrics. I sent in my list and can't wait to get them. They have so many incredible fabrics.
I am almost done with Winter Line-up but ran out of wdw deep sea for the border. It's in the mail along with the wdw lancaster red I need for the border and big heart in Valelntine Medley by Heart in Hand. I love these medley's, they are so cute. I will be posting my Celtic Autumn update tonight too.

Cat Condo Extravaganza
After visiting Sue last Saturday, I knew I had to have a cat condo like her kitties have. Enter the cat condo extravaganza. It was delivered today and I put it together tonight. So far, the kitties seem to like it. Chester loved the box it came in too. He's such a box kitty.
I can't believe we have been stitching Celtic Autumn for 5.5 months. I think I like this stitching a specific design on a specific night thing. It makes the process more interesting. On a fantasy book/tv note....for those of you who read the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin.....HBO just bought the rights to make his books into a series of one book a year. I am so psyched. Martin does some of the best writing I have ever read.
