Lots and Lots of Fun

My order arrived from Nancy's Notions. I wanted the sixth finger stiletto,(not pictured) also bought 3 yards of Birdseye Diaper Cloth, to make lint less dish towels and 3 yards of insul-bright to cover my pressing board, two sweatshirts to embroider, three t-shirts to embroider, a denim shirt to embroider and wear as a jacket, and a sweatshirt make over pattern and a t-shirt makeover pattern.(not pictured) It's amazing how fast I can order new supplies compared to the rate that I finish my new projects.
Tonight after I got home from Greenbrier county, Don and I had dinner out, and then I completed the coasters that I cut out last night. I made the simple cross cut coaster that were so popular a few months ago, I'm always behind. I have 4 more cut out to stitch together tomorrow.

I need to finish my embroidery pictures for the wall in my sewing room. It started out being 5 pictures but I keep finding stuff I want to embroider and frame. I said I wasn't going to show pictures of the designs until I have them framed. At the rate I'm going that will be spring. No, hopefully, they will be completely finished and hanging on the wall by next weekend. I can not deal with unfinished projects, it drives me insane. If I see its hopeless and I've lost my spirit and I'm not going to finish the trash it goes or to someone that wants to finish it. Mostly it's filed in T.

I'll recover the stools in the kitchen this weekend and make new seat pillows for the chairs. This is a must do job rather than let us have fun. We bought new stools for the table and the fabric does not match the kitchen, and the cushions on the chairs need replaced. Hopefully by next week I'll have the other pictures embroidered and every one framed.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, It was 60 degrees in WV today, a good way to start the weekend. We may go to the ski slopes tomorrow with friends. I may spend my time in the lounge and let Don hit the slopes. I don't know if my ACL (knee) repair will allow me to ski this year. The screws in my knee are aggravating me. I always knew I had a screw loose some place and it finally surfaced LOL.

YOur last statement had me laughing outloud, Valerie. Your embroideries are wonderful and perfect for decorating your sewing room...too cute.

And it looks like you hit the jackpot with all your fun purchases. I never knew they had "Birdseye Diaper Cloth" - this might be something that Cindy might need in her stash...LOL

I look forward to seeing your recovered stools.

Forgot to say - I like your coasters. I have made Christmas ones and everyday ones using the same pattern.
