Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

Told You So…..

See?  Two posts in two days and then…one post in a month.  I’m sure you can guess that things are a bit….ummm…hectic around here.  Let’s review the to do list:

  1. Finish Mom’s sampler (about 85% done) – no fixed due date Haven’t touched 🙁
  2. Stitch on final UFO RR – August 11 Some (it’s on black which means daylight stitching – weekends only)
  3. Finish Fair & Square Round 8 squares (about 40% done) – August 11 Done!  Will be mailed Thursday
  4. Stitch Knotwork Bookmark (have fabric and overdyed floss chosen) – August 15 Half-stitched, still should make date

Well, not as much progress as hoped, but considering the number of hours I’ve worked and other various issues, it could have been much much worse.The Stitching Olympics have been floating around, and while I won’t compete in the defined events on The Wagon, I will set some medal-worthy goals to complete by August 24.

  • Bronze – Finish the last three items above (1, 2 & 4)
  • Silver – Finish the three above and work on at least three other WIPs (2 hours each)
  • Gold – Bronze & Silver and complete one of those WIPs 

The other fun thing from the past week:  I bought an airline ticket.  Well, technically Mom bought the tickets, I’m paying for the hotel room 😉  Where are we headed?  Celebration of Needlework in Louisville in October!   I will register for the Friday Night Event yet this week, but no pre-registered classes (maybe a Make It, Take It or two).  I’d rather visit with BB’ers during my time there. 😀 And in closing, a smile!  This is one of my very favorite bits from Sesame Street.  I remember watching with my younger brother and this has stuck in my head for an undisclosed number of years……

  1. I’m looking forward to meeting you at Celebration! I’ve registered for the Friday evening event, and a class on Saturday. Holly & I will be driving down on Friday, and leaving on Sunday, so we’ll be there for 2 nights.

  2. I’d forgotten about that little bit on Sesame Street, but it all came right back as soon as the orange moved out of the basket!

    The kids liked it too….

    Celebrations, Celebrations… I need to make flight plans and roommate plans if I’m going to go…

  3. As soon as I saw the flower eyelashes, I remembered watching that on SS when I was a little girl! Thanks for the flashback. 🙂

  4. Thank you so much for posting that video! My family thinks I’m crazy becuase I was always telling them about the orange, but no one remembered it and thought I was making it up, but I can prove I was right all along!

    Thank you it brings back many happy memories!

  5. […] this week, but I knew it was the stretch goal of the three.  I’ve managed two of three on my original to-do list for the Bronze […]
