Looky here at what I did today--
I have wanted to work on this since I found the pattern and bought it in Nov.
and I finally made it to the sewing room today--
and now all the wool pieces are ready for me to start stitching--
Now don't get toooo excited--
It doesn't mean that I will get it done--this year!!!!!!
But one can still 'hope'!!

Now for the rest of the story--
When I have been shopping on the internet or even over at the Quilt shop --
I keep seeing patterns for the wool projects that I want to make--
several times lately--I have nearly purchased one or two of them--
when I was finding the wool pieces for today's project, 
I opened one drawer in the unit that holds the wool--
and look at what I found--
The one with the circles--nearly bought that on Monday--again!!
Almost rebought the rabbit one last week on line!!
the chicks and the daisy one I nearly bought last week--
I knew I had some patterns in the back of the basket for my wool--
but had totally forgotten there was a whole drawer of patterns!!!!
Here's a couple pictures of my wool stash--
and there is a couple more drawers in this plastic unit that holds more wool--
so now I have patterns, wool, and even special wool threads--
No goodies in the mail today--but did find this in the mail box outside my door today--
Ahhh--Santa was a little 'fatter' too, when I first found him--
cause he is filled with fresh homemade cookies!!!Yummm!!!
and the other project that I worked on for the last couple of days are these--
Discovered that I needed a couple more gifts--
then what else is new???
and that is why I am doing the "Christmas Club"--
so that I don't have this 'issue' next year!!!
In fact I collected all the cotton yarn that I have and it is in a Christmas bag now by my chair--
and I plan--no, really, I plan to keep knitting dishclothes for next year and use up all that yarn--
no buying of any more either ==until all of this is gone--oh stop laughing at me!!!

Hugs, Di and her fur baby--Miss Gracie

  2. I am definitely going to try to organize my workroom during the hols. :-) And I am going to write wisps on a list and start finishing them .... and I'm going to ....
    and just think of all the new projects we can start, Di!!!
