Putting the Banner On Hold

It was a good mail day for me! I received two parcels in the mail. One was the next round in the Teresa Wentzler Round Robin (TWRR) I'm in. This means that Celtic Banner is getting set aside so I can get the TWRR done and back out in the mail again. I find if I don't stitch RR's as soon as they come in the mail I tend to forget/procrastinate. So tonight I picked what I'll be adding to the piece and have a small start.

My second parcel I received from Jennifer of Dragon Dreams! I always love receiving Jennifer's parcels, it usually means a new model! Well this one contains two!! All I can say is that the designs are cute as us
ual!!! I look forward to getting a start on the first of the two as soon as I've completed my TWRR. Not only did this parcel have the models but Jennifer sent me some lovely pressies as well! She sent me six skeins of GAST threads that are so colourful... they're sunny colours that make me think of how bright the blooms in a garden are on a sunny summer's day. The second is this awesome book which I had eyed in the past, Dragonology! Even Todd thinks its a cool book!

Wow, I almost forgot this weeks SBQ...

Q : Have you ever used a magnifying glass while stitching? If so, did youfind it helpful?

A : No I don't use one... at least for now. I'm sure when I do need one I'll break down and use it... I'd rather keep stitching than be vain about my eyesight.

There hasn't been so much stitching going on the last week. I've been busy getting 9 frames with mats ready for next week. I'm right on schedule where I want to be with the job right now so I should be able to go down to Cornwall on Saturday for a stich-in with Chrisanne!

I'm so glad this week is almost over!

I'm jealous. I've been trying to convince myself that I need to spend the money on that book for a long time.
