It's Not Much, But It Is A Start!


The past few weeks have been spent stitching pen blanks for my dad. I put my own stitching aside, so that I could get them done for him, as soon as feasibly possible. I finished them on Sat. afternoon. I had decided I was starting a new pattern as soon as I was done....a little celebration for myself!
I started Red, White & Bloom by CCN. I haven't gotten much done, but I am loving every X at this point. I think it will be a quick stitch. Usually when I am really enjoying a piece, it goes really quick.
This upcoming week is filled with busy-ness. I have appointments three mornings. One morning will be my normal errands. One day is our anniversary....yup, there's the week in a nutshell...
I hope everyone is having a great week. Thanks so much for stopping by & especially for leaving a comment....I appreciate them so much.

Love it when a new start is so enjoyable!! Looks very nice too. Happy Anniversary to you too!!! Doesn't feel like it can really be that many years, does it?? Not too many of us get this far!

Denise said...

Yippee! The blanks are done! Well, almost there is that one...

The new start looks great - I should probably buy this instead of lusting after it.

Anniversary you say? How many years? And what are your plans? Details woman! lol
