Several Rows

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  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
