So near, yet so far

When I've had some stitching time over the last week I've been working on the finishing on another Forget Me Nots in Stitches class, this time the Red Rabbit Needlecase. I took the class back in 2009 and have been plugging away at the nun stitching on and off ever since when I've been able to plug into the zen of nun stitch. As you can see I'm within sight of the end, hopefully I can find the time in the next few days.

I've decided that this will be the first of my larger finishing projects to completed, there's a couple of smalls to go with it that I need to stitch so it's in my rotation until they're all done. Chelle asked if I had decided on which 15 projects that I wanted to finish, and I have to say that I'm not going to decide ahead of time and go with what is speaking loudly when I get the time to finish. I know that when I start digging through the piles of unfinished projects I will find some that I've forgotten about.


The big happening round here is that Christopher is now 6 months old. We celebrated by moving him into his own room, Dave and I are really enjoying the luxury of being able to read in bed again!

This photo was taken the week before Christmas.

When I posted last week I forgot about this blogs anniversary. I started the blog on New Years day 2004 and it's been quite an adventure over the last six years. Here's to the seventh year of blogging...

Gorgeous project!

I remember when we moved Arden into his own room ... it was amazing to be able to talk, read, etc. without worrying about waking him. This house is set up so that the nursery is basically part of the bedroom, and every time we turn a light on, he wakes up. :(

Lois said...
