September First

I can't believe it is September. Exciting things are happening in September. In two weeks we visit son#2 in California. I have a Kindred Spirits Sampler Guild meeting on 9/11. I want to go. Then on the 30th I go to Ohio for Hare Pyns class and Lucet class where I will ride with a friend (who is the teacher!) and see my BFF. Yea! And Son#1 has a birthday on the 28th.
I am thinking about going to the tile store and getting some samples. I was waiting for them to call me to let me know that a sample I wanted was in, but I am getting antsy to see how some of the accent tiles look in my kitchen.
I finished stitching Berry Thief yesterday and ironed and interfaced and am ready to start putting it together. I have read through the directions which are as clear as mud. Never use indefinite pronouns in directions. "It" and "that" can be very confusing. There are a few pictures which I hope will help me along the way. This kit was missing a chart for the scrimshaw pocket and there were a few mistakes in the directions so I am a little nervous. I have to even up the needle page. It is a bit skew-whiff. Do I need to add a strawberry to the 28?
I finally got down to the bottom (end) of the English Tapestry Sewing Box. There is still quite a lot of stitching to do. I was thinking that if I worked on it for an hour a day, it wouldn't be too overwhelming and I would make good progress. How much can I get done in an hour? I'll have to try it out.
Homemade pizza tonight.

  1. Both of these are looking wonderful. Stitching over one is very hard on both patience and eyes isn't it?!
