On a high note DD and her grade 7 basketball team won first in their tournament yesterday and DD also came away with the MVP title! I was so excited and pleased. They played like a well oiled machine!
Tomorrow I'm off to meet DH in Vegas! Woo Hoo!!! He's down there for the Builder's Show so I can hardly wait. I love Vegas. I'm also excited to visit Stitcher's Paradise while I'm down there. It is supposed to be a fabulous shop. I'm going to stock up on overdyed fibres and fabrics when I go there. I've made myself a list.

Here is my current WIP, Mes Girafe by http://www.tomandlily.com/. DD is crazy for giraffes and after searching on Kreative Poppy, not only did we find giraffes, but we found giraffes in her favourite colours! So she sucked me into buying/downloading the chart and starting it right away. It's going great, it's a really fast stitch and fun too. The bottom picture is my WIP from the 16th and the top is what I finished yesterday. Only two more (and a bit) giraffes to go! With the border it's going to be 8 x 10. DD is totally thrilled with my progress so far.

I've also seen the sweet little biscornu designs by Barbara Ana and I think I'll try one. They are too cute!
Tomorrow I think it will be time for the scissor fob finishing once and for all! Maybe if I'm lucky I'll be able to post a picture of the finished project in a day or two.

I started the Glad Tidings fob kit from Shepherd's bush yesterday. It's the first time I've used overdyed threads and I'm loving it. The colours are gorgeous. I'm going to try to figure out how to post a picture of my WIP. I know I love seeing the photos on the stitching blogs I visit.

I love the idea of smalls. I don't want to work on a project for months and months. In this vein, I've got my sewing machine booked for a tune up and I've ordered a mini drill for making twisted cord for embellishing ornaments and the like.
