Finally an update!

Yes, I have been quite absent from blogging lately. I have been still reading many of my favorite blogs though! Life has just been so busy that I haven't felt compelled to type out my thoughts!

I do have an update on my current project, Iris Storykeeper. I've been stitching on it for a week solid and made good progress. While it was supposed to be a Christmas present, it will now be a birthday present that will be completed well before September!

I finally finished kitting up the Queen of Hearts (see below)! I spent the time while I was supposed to be watching the Super bowl to get all the threads onto bobbins and organized in a box. I have the fabric already and I purchased a Q-snap today so I am looking forward to trying it out!

HAED is having a Valentine's Day sale so I splurged on two new patterns. Because I just don't have enough to do already! I purchased Mystique and Dragon Knot 2. Dragon Knot is for my honey, the sailor. Not sure when I will start this one but hopefully it will be a 2008 project! Mystique I bought for myself! Will it ever be done? Who knows? I have yet to complete one for myself!

Very pretty colors in Iris!! I love to see the HAED progress. I have one, but haven't done much on it. You bought some other pretty ones too!

Ooh! Your Iris Storykeeper is absolutely beautiful! I have been tempted to pick this one up while the sale is still on :)

Queen of Hearts is so beautiful, and I'm looking forward to seeing you work through this one. Such a fitting start for February!!
