Just a little progress

I didn't feel much like stitching last night and since I had a foreign movie with sub-titles sitting on my coffee table, I figured it was a good night to watch it. Stitching and subtitles just don't mix! But I did finish a little more of Garden of Life. It's coming together nicely, only a few more days. I hope by Friday to have this finished. The colors are wonderful, nice and soft.

Tonight is agility with Molly so no stitching tonight either. I really need to get moving on block 11 of the Village or I won't meet my goal of one block per month. And it's time to order more NPI silk from Drema. I might not even have enough black to get me through this month.

I did take French Alphabet Sampler off my wish/to do list. Marquior will be enough for me at the present time. And the money I will save will pay for all the other charts on my list. I will put off ordering them however for the present time unless they come up for a really good price on eBay. I just don't know when I would get to them in the next year or so and they are all big ass projects.

I have decided to purchased the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue. I have several Christmas presents that I usually buy gifts for but I think I would like making ornaments for those people instead. Perhaps three or four. I realized a couple of months ago that I tossed out the first eight or so years of Just Cross Stitch magazine last summer. I didn't think I'd ever start to cross stitch again and since I had never even started one project from them I just tossed them out. I wonder what I threw away? :-(
I could just kick myself.

Garden of Life is coming along so beautifully, I love it! I also loved seeing your start on "Marquoir ABC Bleu & Rouge"... Reading your blog always puts me in the mood to stitch. :)
