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

Do you smell smoke?

I just ordered a kit for Chatelaine’s Swan Lake at DH’s insistence.

I’m not going to say my “Guideline” for 2011 isΒ up in flames quite yet, but it’s warming up…..

I won the chart in a Chatelaine lottery last year, and the first pics were just too tempting LOLΒ  (I’m looking at you MissyAnn)

  1. I say that if your DH insisted, then this WIP doesn’t apply to your 2011 goal. I mean, come on, he insisted so that makes this “his” project. πŸ˜‰

  2. I got some money for Christmas and I’m feeling guilty about spending it on cross-stitch! LOL I feel like I’m ‘cheating’ on my own challenge! πŸ˜†

  3. lol I’m posting an updated picture this afternoon too. The center center is complete, I’m moving on to the frame today. πŸ˜€

  4. I love to sit back and watch as my friends enable one another! ‘Cause far too often, you guys do it to me!! πŸ˜‰ Seriously, I do think this is a completely gorgeous project. And, I must agree that your DH’s insistance makes him at least half responsible for the order. Just sayin’.

  5. It’s such a pretty one – glad your DH gave you a “push”!

  6. oh no, it doesn’t count if it’s your hubby’s idea πŸ™‚

  7. Mary Jane says

    I’m sure you’ll enjoy it, so don’t worry about it “counting”!

  8. Yay on your purchase! As Missy Ann said – if your DH insisted, you haven’t broken any rules!
