This time last year I was full of hope for a happy new year. It was anything but. Today is the one year anniversary of Daddio's passing. Last year was pretty darn miserable but it did go by quickly-as they all seem to do these days.
With all the borders done, this year's plan is to work on the sheep for the Sheep Virtues sampler. I hate it. Working with light colors is not fun. All that light gray looks messy. I'm a pretty sloppy stitcher but that looks bad even for me. Oh, well.
My disaster of a sewing corner has been moved once again to accommodate all the bedroom junk piled up all over the house so serious stitching is out the question.
I did pull out Dear Jane. It was nice to work on it again. It satisfied an itch.
An itch that started with this. It's from the new Connecting Threads catalog and I love it. I love everything about it. I love the pattern. I love the colors. I love the material-but I don't need another quilt kit stashed in the closet. Having said that, if it ever goes on sale, it will be mine. Let's just hope it sells out quickly. I don't think I can fit another one in the closet.
