Yesterday I got my B'Day projects offf to the framer. It was a load of my mind. And although on Sunday I started the Jenny Bean friendship sampler (and no I have not worked on it since-bad girl)and have been sporadicly working on Sams Socks I decied I needed some small projects to take to work. So this morning I kitted up a couple of patterns that I got over the weekend from my friend Maggie (my very generous friend) The first one is a cute little Lizzie Kate Quick-it design Dogs leave paw prients I am doing it on a dull yellow fabric and pulleed threads from my stash- I am making this for my "grand-Puppy" Benjamin- this is hard for me to admit but I really don't like dogs- would never in a million years have one but I love Benjamin! He is a big dog and so sweet-he is the light of my daughters eye-she is thinking of sending him to doggie daycare-as he loves other dogs. anyways I am making this to hang on his crate (he loves his crate)so He'll think of me. The send one is a design by Beth Twist called I will stitch you in my heart it is a Heartstring Primitives design- I am using a piece of green fabric and again I took the threads from my stash. I think I will make this into a pillow for my daughter.I can't wait to get started on these projects. Tonight is weight watchers and although I was on program all week will have to see if my efforts will be rewarded. I do know I have been able to lower the amount of insulin I take at night and I rarely have to take any during the day, so I need to focus on those things not just the scale. I have to tell you a funny story, my daughter comes to supper on tuesdays, my son-in-law has school usually but this week was semester break so he came. He asked Rachel what I was making for dessert-Rachel told him I wasn't making dessert to which he relpied "theres always dessert". Sorry Joe theres a new eating plan! Have a great day-stitch your heart out!
