Still on Page One

I didn't get as far as I wanted on the English Tapestry Sewing Box. That is because I washed the ceiling and the bulkhead in the kitchen. DH is painting the corners right now. We would love to get the whole kitchen painted this weekend. That would be a big accomplishment. The painting will go really fast once we can use a roller. I've been thinking it would be nice to paint it a color instead of just white. I didn't tell DH, as I know what his response would be: NO!
I worked just a bit on In the Sweet By and By. I am working out the colors as I go along.
My sister asked why I don't like pineapples. I love to eat pineapple but I don't like stitching them especially stitching in all black. The kit is from Jackie DuPlessis and is a neat little see through tin. I just need to find a little round design that I like. A pansy! That's it, find one of Just Nan's pansies and stitch that.
Another of the round robin kits is from Catherine Theron. I don't like the flower on it - too stilted. I saw a flower I liked on the front of the Monogram Album I was using and thought it might do. So I started it.
In hopes of organizing my sewing room just a bit, I am going to get one of those plastic drawers and put all my leftover kit threads in it. Right now, leftover threads are scattered all over. If I put them in one central place, it will clean off the top of a lot of things in my sewing room. I can't bear to throw the threads away and sometimes they are very useful.
I am excited about going to meet stitchy people tomorrow. I'm going to take my camera and get some pictures.
