Celtic Bonding Spiral: This isn't the best picture ever, but you get the idea. (I think I was a bit too close to get a nice clear shot....)
And Lanarte's Classic Woman. (Again with the so-so pic.)
I neglected to set any goals for March, so to recap what I did - not much! The only actual stitching that I accomplished was the little sachet I posted below. I DID, however, have fun learning how to use my sewing machine and putting together some finishing, and I got to the LNS to have the bear birth announcement framed. April may be a bit of a wash as well, since my mother-in-law and her husband will be visiting over Easter weekend, and DH's brother is coming out the following week. Ack!
Anyway, some modest April goals -
1) finish the Bonding Spiral.
2) if not finish, make some significant progress on the Classic Woman.
3) a small start, perhaps? I have a Sweetheart Tree Teenie Tweenie kitted up, and also the Just Nan heart design from the Feb. 2005 issue of Just Cross Stitch.....
4) if #s 1 & 2 are accomplished, I will *gasp* put in a few stitches on Once Upon a Time.
And finally, my gift-giving experience with the potpourri sachet. I popped it in a pretty gift bag along with a Victoria's Secret gift certificate. The bride-to-be was doing the gift-opening, and when she got to mine she said, "ooo, is it a cat toy?!?!?" I about strangled her. So I said (ok, yelled across the party room), "no, it is a sachet for your lingerie drawer...." And as I was leaving I reminded her not to let the cat get it. She replied, "I know, I know, it is an air freshener!" *banging head on desk* Whatever. I seem to need these reminders every so often -- DON'T STITCH FOR PEOPLE IF YOU AREN'T SURE THEY'LL APPRECIATE IT. Ah well. Back to stitching for ME, right?!?!?
