Hi, Everyone! DD didn't know that I wasn't finished with that last post when she published it! But I guess that's okay. We still can't get the internet on our home computer. I really have a hard time typing things on her laptop. I keep hitting the wrong keys and wiping out what I've done! lol These newfangled things are so hard for us "OLD FOLKS" to learn to use! lol
I have been stitching a lot the last few days! I have finished the 2nd part of the rose sampler. DD is going to make me a copy of the 3rd part, so I can stay caught up. I wish I could post some pictures! I'm also working on a new piece for my mom for Christmas next year. It's going to go on a basket lid. I'm really enjoying stitching it. It's a country piece and I love the colors! I did some Valentine pieces and made the draon piece for DD into a bookmark. She really liked it!
I'm going to start the Mirabilla fairy for her as soon as I can find the material she gave me for Christmas. I have again put it somewhere safe and now can't find it! I got all the threads and the metallic threads, too. I'm going to get the beads later. If I got them now, I'd probably put them somewhere "safe" and forget where! lol
I am really excited! My LNS is having a stitching retreat Mar. 14th and 15th. She had told us about it at the Christmas party, but I couldn't remember the dates. I haven't felt like going over to the store since right after Christmas. But last Thurs. I really felt led to go to the shop and pick up the next LizzieKate double flipits. While I was there, I overheard her talking to another customer about the retreat. I asked when was it and she said the 14th and 15th. I asked her when was the last day to sign up and it was that day! It costs $90 and I really didn't have the money, but I decided I would cut back on something else - I really need to do something for myself every once in a while. So I signed up and paid. If I had not gone to the shop that day, I would have missed the retreat! It's that Fri. evening until 9:00 at the shop and then 9:oo am until 6:oo pm on Sat. - also at the shop. The theme is a surprise. We're going to do at least 3 projects (get them started). Everybody gets a goodie bag of stuff and everything you need for the projects. She also gives out door prizes, and everybody gets one. We get dinner Fri. night and lunch Sat. It was limited to 16 people and I was number 14! I really can't wait!
Guess I'd better go! I want to read some of your blogs. I'm afraid I can't post a comment on DD's laptop if you have to type in those letters and numbers - it won't show them. But know that I am reading them! Pray that DD finds the time to fix my computer soon! Have a day full of happy moments, and may God bless you!
