Celtic Banner SAL and All The Stash is Here!




Sorry you didn't get your promised progress report last night! I was just soo tired, I couldn't be bothered to get the camera out. Honestly, I didn't get too much done, a short length of the border that's it. I'm starting to worry that perhaps I left too much fabric at the top? I hope not!!!









And here is the results of my Christmas Holiday madness shopping!



I bought : Mirabilia's Christmas Elf Fairy, M Designs Letters E&F, How to Cube It (by Elegant stitch), Christmas Ornaments and The Flat Fold (by Judy O'Dell). My last stash purchase won't be here for a couple of weeks, and that's my Christmas Elf Fairy Fabric!!

My first model is off in the mail today! I've got a very slow start on the second, I think this one may actually stitch up faster??? Though it is the same over-all size. I can't wait to get this finished. I need to get an ornament for January stitched and I have my partners for the February Blahs Exchange over at Needle and Thread BB so I have two treat bags to get stitched up!

Tonight I had a good chat on the phone with one of the designers I stitch for, she's asked me how my stitching schedule looks like for February/March. I've told her its all clear (it always is for her!!!) and I even got my choice of assignment! It sounds pretty darned cool too, right up my alley. I can't wait to see what she's come up with this time!

Tomorrow night, I won't get much stitching done, its Guild night. For a change I'm actually taking part in one of the program classes, a beaded brooch.

Well I think its time to pack it in for the night.

Nice stash enhancements there, Dani! I bet I can guess which designer you were talking with. ;) Can't wait to see what her clever mind comes up with next, nor can I wait to see you bring it to life. :)

Dani, you made some wonderful choices there :)
I love those M Designs alphabet letters! Just did the W for my DD and it turned out beautiful!

AnneS said...

I think, like Jenna, I could probably guess the designer too ... from a selfish point of view I don't like it when you guys do model and exchange stitching - I have to wait too long to see it ;) LOL. Seriously, though, looking forward to whatever the mystery project is :) Your CB is coming along well - though that border would have my eyes boggling by now!

Great work on Celtic Banner. I did the border as I went... Are you bored silly stitching it all at once?

I love the M design letters. I am actually doing a heart by her that was in an American magazine. Slow going as I am stitching it on black. Should really pick it up again as brother's b-day is in April.

I am totally DYING for the Christmas Elf Fairy now, thanks! lol

Rosemary, who has Celtic Banner in her stash and is trying to ignore that fact.

Oh, lovely stash! Amazing how a little bit of stash can brighten your day :)

Celtic Banner is growing too - that border would have driven me nuts by now!

Carol said...

Your Celtic Sampler is getting huge now - you must be starting to feel some satisfaction, at last!! (I hope you do, you deserve it!)

Your stash pile looks yummy! Very cool!

Katrina said...

wahoo Dani, great new stash there! Look forward to seeing you start the Christmas Elf Fairy (getting very tempted by your talk and seeing Lisa's lovely recent finish!!)

Bastet said...

Celtic Banner is comming along nicely..though part of that maybe that it's on my wish list somewhere, so I get to "stitch" it with you. Lovely stash you bought.

I think I can guess which designer you are talking about too ;-), but then again, it pays off to be a regular blog reader of yours ;-)) Ann.

I'm doing the Celtic Banner too. I can't wait to finish the border...
