So, the pattern that I started with the colors is "Mocking Bird". I am not sure what the fabric is that I had in my stash but after looking at the colors next to it I figured it was a go. I am not the best at selecting fabric. Guess I need to learn and now is the time to try.
I also got some work done on the class project. I really cannot wait to finish this one and try my hand at finishing this myself.
Coni, if you think you have issues with Stewey not picking up his toys take a look at what my Josie is up to tonight. Not only did she pull out most of her toys she then decided she was too bored to play any more. I think the two of them need to meet and have a lesson on how to pick up their toys. Cannot leave all that fun to their Mommies.... Can we.....
Recently while reviewing several other blogger's sites I ran across a finished project of Haberdashery Designs that I have to try. It is called Voodoo Boy. I have picked up a 28 count black joblean (spelling - not sure about) and from my stash of threads I found some the brightest DMC colors. I have several of these to make. Voodoo Boy seems to be a needed stress release for some workers I know. The names are being left off to protect the innocent.

Well, as you can see I still have lots to go on the sampler. I was asked over the weekend to give a progress update and I have to say I am so sorry for being so slow at updating my progress. I was excited to find 1/16th ribbon floss from LNS. The color is oatmeal and looks great against the material and ecru DMC floss. So, progress continues and hopefully by the weeks end I should have more done.
This was a wonderful weekend. On Saturday I attended a luncheon put on by a group of ladies from our local area and our guild NANI who brought in Lori Markovic - La D Da. Lori designed a special project for us and as soon as I get mine completed I will post a picture. Lori is such a great teacher and this was my second opportunity to have a class with her. She brought along many items for sale and of course I added to my La D Da stash.
Another neat thing happened at the event. I got the great chance to meet another fellow blogger who has a blog that keeps me going on a daily basis and in stitches. Please add Spinster Stitcher to your list of blogs to review. I know you will truly enjoy this amazing lady her side kick Stewy. I also got the chance to meet her sister. They are truly a great pair of ladies.
Today I took a quick moment to take a few pictures of our lilies before they are gone. They are so pretty and I just could not stop taking pictures.
Well, before the day is over I am going to head outside and enjoy the last bit of cool weather. What a gorgeous day we had. I am so tired from all of the work we did outside today but feel great knowing that I did get some things accomplished.
