This week certainly is not flying by like I want it to. Today feels like it should be friday and I've felt like this alllllll week. Why can't everyday be Friday??? I've spent this very long week exploring the world of blogging and the online cross stitch community. I can safely say that I'm officially addicted. I've gone on a cross stitching shopping spree purchasing a lovely friendship sampler from the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe with the corresponding hand dyed floss. I cannot contain my excitement about this. It was my first time ever using ebay and paypal and Nancy at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe made the experience virtually painless! Thanks for the coaching Nancy! On top of this I've purchased 2 Nora Corbett fairies which should arrive any day now. The anticipation is killing me! AHHHHH!
Another first I have to share is that I've joined the 24month (crazy) SAL by Papillon Creations - see the newsletter section if you're interested in joining or getting to know a bit more about it.
I the mean time I'm trucking along with 'Oh Christmas Tree'. Here's my progress as of Wednesday evening. I can just picture her dress being made of red velvet and oh-so smooth.
I'm pretty well done with the red in the girl's dress - but I can honestly say I'm dreading starting on the other half of the tree. The top was so tedious that I'm not overly enthused about starting in on the green... ughhhhh.
You may have noticed by now that these pic's are sooooooooo much better than my previous ones. I'd like to introduce 'Shella' my new camera to facilitate my cross stitching and blog obsession. Of course this is not the only reason I bought the camera... I think haha.
And now for the mandatory cute puppy pic of the day. I snapped this yesterday evening as I was cooking on the BBQ on the deck outside. Leia was quite content to be lazy and regal all at the same time in the doorway, and right under my feet... and enjoying every moment of the breeze. So darn cute!
(ADDED) I NEARLY FORGOT! I wanted to express my thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post :) For those trying out the biscuits I'd love to know how it went!
