Sunday Sunday

Well, here we are at last. The end of the week. I did not get a whole lot of stitching done. It was so hot this week, and I wasn't feeling well. We actually had to break down and turn on the air conditioner. We got home from church on Wednesday night and it was 89 in the house!!!!

So I did get a little stitching done. First up is the current American Soldier Memorial piece. Unfortunately, I have almost run out of blue! I tried to get an order places with, but for some reason my computer was having issues, so almost half the threads I needed didn't show up on the final order. I decided to cancel that order, but did not get around to re-ordering this week. I will have to do that, since I need the fabric for my surprise gift also!

I have been working mostly on the Joy to the World pattern. It is on Aida, so I don't have to work hard to figure out the stitches. But, Arrrrrgh! Now it looks like I don't have enough Amber to finish the "W"! Why can't I figure out how much thread I need for a project???

Finally, I decided to start another new project. This is the Henzeit Easter block pattern. It has been sitting in my stash for I don't know how long. It is actually one I was supposed to stitch for my mom, although she has probably forgotten about it by now. I didn't get very far on it.

I am having a problem with pattern overload- LOL. I have kitted up several other patterns, and now I am having trouble deciding which one I should work on. Of course, if I were thinking ahead, I would be working on the surprise and the Christmas gifts instead of a bunch of patterns for myself. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day. I will get back on my rotation schedule.

  1. Sorry to hear about the thread troubles. Hopefully you'll get to order them soon. Your WIPs look great and very excited to see your memorial piece. I think your mom will be pleasantly surprised when you've finished even if it's been a while. Good luck on your new project whichever you choose !

  2. Sorry to hear about running out of floss. It is such a pain especially when you then have to order it. The Easter pattern looks like fun.

  3. Sounds like you need to double whatever floss you think you need :)

  4. Your WI{s look great.
    Isn't it just so frustrating when you can see you are almost finished and run out of floss? I hope you are able to get the missing floss soon.

  5. The WIP's look great but I was thinking there would be a update on the "Wiseman" ;o)

  6. Your Wip's are all looking great. and I agree with Kathy. It is simply frustrating to run out of floss.
