More Good Mail

I always wonder if I'll have anything to share on this blog.  But it seems that something always comes along.  I got the new Just Nan Pin Cube in the mail yesterday.

 Of course I want to start it!  It looks like it will be very cute and small.  I want to do at least one of the cube outlines so I can see how big it will be.
Then I got the next several lessons for the Spring Casket Keepsakes.  Oh No!  I'm not ready!  I have been neglecting this project as the detached buttonhole stitching is daunting.  There is supposed to be (at least) 28 stitches per row.  How I always manage to lose a few along the way, I have no idea.  The next lessons are one's I can do without too much trouble.  I can make that pouch and I can do the finger looping to make the drawstring.  Oh man, I need to get busy on this project.  Maybe if I finish up a couple things, my mind will be ready to concentrate.

I got half of the bower done on Shepherd's Fold.

 I'm making it up as I go along and keeping my fingers crossed that it turns out.  So far, so good.  I'm almost done with this one!

I got the bargello pin cushion, Night and Day, all done.  Yeah!

I worked a bit on There's a Bird on the Roof.

 I can finish this up today.
I'm having too much fun.
