I have been remiss

I have not posted pics of the Halloween Window. I finished it yesterday morning. I managed to salvage the hardanger part. I did have a heck of a time with this little spiderweb done with Japan thread, which I will never use again. Mine doesn't look as nice as the one in the magazine, but it's done. I may couch the Japan thread to try to keep it looking good

I have picked my next small project. I am doing the Winter's Delight sampler from the December 2004 Just Cross Stitch. This was the project that I lost the supplies for. It's just too pretty to keep putting off. My friend Karen just told me that I need to have this done by Easter--I think I can accomodate her. I started the next square of Hummingbird Trellis afghan last night, but I know it's going to take me a while, so this is good. I realize I like the small finishes, a lot more than the large, complicated finishes. There is something really satisfying about getting something done in a week.

I agree. It's nice to throw in little projects in between big ones because then you feel like you're actually accomplishing something :o)

Can't wait to see pictures!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
