Last fall I found a cabinet for my Willow Tree figurines. DH wasn't able to see the cabinet for another 2 days. By that time - it was sold. But, I left my name and number with the sales clerk and the owner called me a few weeks ago. This was delivered Sunday.
It makes me smile every time I see it. Finally, I can see these as they should be - displayed properly! If you would like to have Joeleen restore a piece for you - goto http://www.revivalrestorationco.com/ She has stores in Coshocton, Ohio and North Carolina!
On the stitching front - it's all Mary Jane's fault!! She emailed me and made the comment that she would be hard pressed to wait until Colorful Sky was completed before starting Naturistic. She loved the blues and purples as much as I did. Well, I hadn't given it any thought to start the new project. I just thought I would rush through Colorful Sky and be thrilled to start Naturistic.
Then I got to thinking. And twitching. And then stitching. I'm blaming Mary Jane and that's my story - I'm sticking to it! (As if anyone would have to hogtie me and say I had to start this. lol)
Ten days and I've done a page and a half. Normally, it would take about a month per page. This is a wonderful stitch. The colors are clumpy. You get to change colors so not to be bored, but there are enough stitches together to really fly.
I'm stitching so much that my arthritis is flaring some. But, I don't care. Insomnia be damned - I'm stitching at night before bed. If my poor husband wants to see me - head to the stitching room.
We got snow last night! The weathermen had called for 8-12". We got an extremely wet 4-5" This is snowball fighting and snowman making snow! The dog (and my mother) hate it. lololol Finally, now we can head into spring and I'm good. It's wonderful that that is my attitude as the temperatures are to be in the 50's this weekend. :)
Well, schools are closed and that means I didn't have to go to the genealogy library today. Snow day! I'm heading for the shower and the stitchy chair! Woohoo
