As I was walking the track at the Y yesterday, my knee got tweaked.  I must have twisted it somehow.  Rats.  I'm a bit gimpy.  Since we had a bunch of snow last night and I don't want to drive in it, I'm not going to exercise today.  So I'll just stay home and stitch and watch it snow out the window.

I resisted as long as I could.  Then I called and signed up for the Shepherd's Fold club thing.  It will be fun to get some kits in the mail every so often.  I love making smalls anyway.  I guess that it starts in February.

I am on the next step with Mermaid's Treasures which is using the detached buttonhole stitch to join the front lining to the front of the mirror like so:

I am so thrilled with how it is turning out.  Every once in a while, I say to myself "I made this!"
I love those little clippy things.  I got them with a gift certificate from son#1 to Amazon (they carry an amazing array of things).  The clips are very handy.  I've got my eye on some things at Amazon just in case Santa gets me another gift certificate.

I made a bit of progress on the Queen Victoria Scissors case.  I am one stitch off on the bottom (the  greenish border is one stitch taller than it should be) but I've chosen not to worry about it.  Now the question is do I do the back in a lovely fabric or do I stitch another Victoria?  I'd like to stitch another Victoria but I have so many things to stitch.  I'm thinking . . .
Wishing you a fun weekend!
