I ate too much and it's not even lunch time yet.  I had breakfast as usual then was off to the Farmer's Market.  I had to hurry because I was meeting two friends for breakfast at 9.  Nine is pretty late to eat breakfast and I was just going to have coffee.  But when I got to the restaurant I had to have one of their famous cinnamon rolls.  Then the waitress went by with pancakes.  I haven't had a pancake in forever, I just wanted a bite of one.  So I ordered a "lite" breakfast - and a cinnamon roll.  Then on the way out, I bought a cupcake.  So today I have had two full breakfasts.  Shame on me. (Both were delicious!)  I told DH the cupcake was for him.  But if he won't eat it, I will.

I got to my goal on Mr. Snowman.  The broom and mouse are done and I am moving on to the toe of the stocking.

I am still working on the star cartouche.  I'm sure I can finish it today.  Windmill next?  Maybe.

I almost made it around with the border.  This is getting close to being done.  I got stuffing yesterday so I can finish the pin cushion.

I also bought the last of LNS's 40 count linen to play with.  I've learned a new term, doodle cloth.  I want to embroider a couple of stems to see how they look and see if I want to continue and make the top to the casket.  I want my casket to be beautiful and delicate and show skillful stitching.
Maybe I'll have the rest of the cinnamon roll for lunch.

  1. Pleased to hear you enjoyed the breakfasts. A treat once in a while is excellent! I started a doodle cloth years ago - I should dig it out and use it again. I think I put it away so I wouldn't stitch everything twice - but better safe than sorry. Also I meant to say how much I liked the photo of Claire - she's looking gorgeous.
