I woke up early this morning. I always check my mail as soon as I get dressed. Yes! There was a newsletter from Amy Mitten. I knew it - I have been anticipating a new tutorial for a while now. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. It is beautiful! I want to make it! (Of course I want to make it, I want to make everything Amy Mitten designs) It doesn't come out until November. I'm all signed up. How will I wait until November? Just the thought of a new project put me in such a good mood. Walking went faster. I'm excited.
Okay, I worked on stuff yesterday. Evan's Christmas stocking is more blingy. I put the string of "lights" on the Christmas tree as well as some ornaments.
Then I got to start the snowman. I appliqued his foot. Next I get to do his arm. So that is the goal for today. Get his arm on.
Then on Mistress L, I worked on the pansy band. I hope to finish that band up today and start the montenegrin row just below it.
When I get the pansy band done the sampler will be about 26 inches long. Only 6 inches to go! Can you believe it? I'm getting close to finishing now.
My sweet Claire started her school yesterday. She is growing up so fast. It was a thrill to see her all dressed up, ready to go. It brings back a lot of memories of getting my kids off to their first day of school.
