So, if you read my first guest blog post on Stitching the Night Away (if you didn't, you can read it here), you would know that the I proposed taking an inventory of all stitching supplies. And then, I proposed making a list of all the pieces that you wanted to stitch. Well, I am proud to say that I have finally finished my list. I had to redo my fabric because I had used some and then got some new fabric and hadn't updated anything.
Longer followers of my blog might recall that I wanted to make ornaments for each year of my daughters' lives and also make a box and then they got the box and ornaments at age 18. Well, I started planning that as well. I also decided to do a box for my stepdaughter which will take a lot more time since I have to catch up on 15 years of Christmases. She and her brothers are really a part of our family and they have pretty much disowned their biological mother so it was the least I could do. I think I have picked out a variety of different kinds that she should like.
If I haven't mentioned it, I'm trying to go back to college next year. My stitching and blogging time will be greatly depreciated as I will be taking 9 credits of graduate courses every term. I figure the ornaments aren't such a bad thing to shoot for as they are smaller and only take a few hours to stitch most of the time.
I am almost done with the teapot sampler. Just two squares to go. I also started this ornament:
Tonight I'm going to be singing in the chorus for Part I of The Messiah!
