I was super excited to pack my stitching tote and get out for an evening with the girls! I rarely have time to stitch on any projects that are not my own designs; therefore, it always seems to take me years to complete anything that is not Blue Ribbon Designs related. Well, you should have heard the comments when I pulled out a project I started last September that didn't look like it had been touched in months...it was quite comical. The last stitching update I posted for this project was October 11, 2010...and since then, it has been in my project bag, folded neatly, waiting patiently for me...funny how time has gotten away on this one...and I would really like to have it done before Christmas of 2011. The particulars (since it has been a while): it is "Winter Wonderland" by Blackbird Designs - which I feel in love with the first moment I saw it!...this is Loose Feathers Pattern 39...I have been collecting the LF patterns since they started and I have actually (*shockingly*) completed quite a few of them (at least I did years ago when the series started).
So, the roof of the house is now stitched...and I have actually started the white of the house and the windows...hmmm, how long it will it take me to even come close to finishing the house...a couple years maybe...?? I guess the lesson I have learned from this is: I need to make more time for stitching with friends....especially if I want to have this project finished before I reach retirement.
