More Good Stitchy Mail

I have been getting lots of good packages. I got Secretariat in the mail, along with the running horse kit, on Tuesday. My order from Picture This Plus came last night--I love that little cat and dog. Finally, a designer that realizes that our pets do talk to each other, which I have suspected for YEARS. One of the ones I bought was called "Remember" and it's a tribute to the pets that we have lost. It's just the dog and cat looking off to the side. Very peaceful, but so beautiful. It might be kinda cool to frame that with a copy of the Rainbow Bridge poem. Or else a list of the pets that passed through our lives. Hmmm, will have to think on this one.

I am almost finished with the mouse. My father had surgery yesterday and I used the time in the waiting room to finish the tree branches, with a little bit of frogging. I just have to do the backstitch on this little guy now and he's done. I can't believe he took such a large chunk of the month. Oh well, at least I truly did make it Finish It February in that the only project I started was for the Bride's Tree SAL, and I finished that. Along with this, that is two finishes for the month. I promised myself to only work on UFOs and WIPs this month and I am doing really good, despite the fact that the new Cross Stitcher got to the stores, and it's got plenty of really cute small designs. I even found a sweet design of bears that Brea would love. But I can't work on that til March, as much as I want to get it started for you, B!

I will post a review of this magazine. It's one of their better issues, actually. Free Margaret Sherry kit, cute little bears, pretty pillow, nice issue.

Oh, lucky you! I came home to no mail :o( Drat!

I think you're doing great with your finishes this year. Much better than I am. LOL!

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
