Everywhere in my house is a mess. The dining room table is full of stocking stuffers, Christmas cards and more. Messy! The living room has a pile of boxes from gifts I ordered that came this week. If I painted them green, I could call it a Christmas tree.
The computer room has a bunch of papers I found that I need to turn into a calendar today. My sewing room is the messiest of all but I'm busy, I have to get some things done, I can't stop and clean! I am going to have to take a week and do nothing but put stuff away. All these messes are driving me crazy.
On the other hand, I have made progress. I finished off Merrily, Merrily yesterday. I opted for the dark green cording as opposed to light green. Am I happy with it? Yeah. I am rolling my eyes at the thought of putting this project on a slate frame and basting it up the wazoo. I worked it in hand on a 4 by 4 piece of fabric and it turned out fine.
I got several rows of smocking done. It is starting to take shape. Don't worry, it's going to be very cute when I get it done. I think I can finish it today if I work hard.
Tomorrow I am going to make goodies: fudge, caramel corn and various other treats.
Here are the two books I got to help me with designing my casket.
I also tried out a site I saw on the Mary Engelbreit website. On the ME site there is a free download of a chart that was done by pic2pat.com. So I went to pic2pat a tried it. I like what it did. I want to play around with a few pictures that I have. It's a lot easier to work with than my PCStitch which I still have no clue how to use
