Do I ever run out of things to say? Not usually. I seem to be able to come up with something, just give me a minute.
The baby boy is now Evan. What a nice name. I can now finish the birth sampler.
I am expecting some pre-stitching for the June retreat. That will be fun to see, especially since the theme is Downton Abbey.
I am getting ready to start something new. I have lots of new patterns from the Nashville market and lots of linen and lots of thread. The hard part is deciding what to work on. I was waiting to start some of the designs until I got my magnifier lamp. (Thank you BFF#2 for bringing it to me) Working on black or very dark linen is a challenge. You really need good lighting and magnification. I serged the edges of four different linens so they are ready to be used. Maybe one of these?
I ordered a slate frame. All advanced stitchers must have a slate frame, right?
The next retreat is not that far away. We leave in three weeks. It will be a road trip with four of us. Fun.
