Yes, I'm still around and still stitching. It has been a month of TWO's.
Life is still busy with TWO new consignment sellers for my ebay business.
And I have TWO real estate closings this week.
And I'm preparing for TWO retreats in the month of June.
And I have TWO new finishes to share with you-
Finish #1-SAL Sopresa 2012
I would love to sign up for the 2014 SAL but it is 55 euros. The latest exchange rate to dollars is approximately $74-whew! A little too steep for me for a mystery project :) Is anyone signed up for it? I can't wait to see it on someone's blog.
Finish #2-A Baby, A Manger
I saw this one in person at Acorns & Threads in Portland. It is so adorable finished as a no-sew stand up. It was also a quick finish since I used some 28 ct grey linen from my stash. Sorry for being too lazy to iron it before the photo.
Here is an update on Shepherd's Bush angel stocking for GD#2
I have TWO new starts to share-
New start #1-Shepherd's Bush Fold-pretty pathetic start. I already made a change in the house and put the chimneys down where they belong :) I do love the linen.
New start #2-Gay Ann Rogers Samples
This is the first time I have stitched on linen congress cloth. Try clicking on the photo to get a better look. It should look
like similar to this photo below when I'm finished-
Another thing I have been busy with is my local EGA chapter opportunity basket to the GPR seminar being held in Reno next month. Since there is no EGA chapter in Reno, all the participants will be flying or driving in. So I wanted to provide a "basket" that would travel home easily with the winner. Yes, it is assembled and shipped and hopefully will be a large fundraiser for the chapter!
Only one basket, not TWO!
One more TWO to share-
I was so happy to see SANQ thinking "out of the box" this month! And am in love with the half-doll pincushion on the front!
So I rushed right off to order the doll and realized that I had another GPA pattern in my stash that needed a doll. So, I ordered TWO!
Hey, Annette, I hear you are going to stitch the SANQ doll, too! If you build it (a SAL), I will come! :) And a lot of other stitcher's too, I'll bet.
Hope your Memorial Day weekend was fun and relaxing. We stayed home and entertained friends TWICE. And hosted a family birthday party for TWO family members.
(Couldn't resist two more TWO's :)
