I finished the World Pin Keep!  It turned out great.  I love it  There is a rumor that Amy Mitten is coming out with a globe.  I would love to stitch that.  I also heard a rumor of another online tutorial  that she is designing that sounds absolutely fascinating.  It 's a pillow that opens up and has compartments inside.  Okay, Amy, I'm ready for your next offering.  But in the meantime, I will be busy with strawberries.  I got my kit for the Shining Needle Society class from Jackie DuPlessis.  There are a lot of things in the kit.  It looks like a lot of strawberries will be stitched in queen stitch on yards of banding.  The class starts on Friday.
I am typing on the new desktop computer.  It is a big hassle to move everything over and be able to get to things.  Of course, when you are older, you hate to change stuff you have done for years.  I'm so old that they don't make my favorite perfume anymore.  I have actually worn out a set of china dishes.
We are on baby watch here.  I figure if I work on the birth announcement, maybe Marco will be born today.  Fingers crossed!
