So it looks like I will be stitching up a storm come Wednesday. It seems that every time my Husband and FIL are gone I stitch a lot. So I guess this is a good thing. Maybe I'll finish Nicola's stocking yeah!! I wanna make some yummy cookies too. Have know idea why but I'm in the baking mood. That is not good when I gained 3 of the 5 lbs I lost back on my trip. Oh well I say, I will try to loose it all again just not this week I guess. I am actually looking forward to having the house to myself for a bit. If you wanna come visit just give me a call. I'm sure I'll be here (after work that is). Last night I stretched my cirques de circles and they have some spots ( I think finger prick). So after trying with no hope of getting them out I think now I need to get a mat to cover up the excess fabric it sucks! I hope it still looks ok with a mat though. I know some stitchers do not frame without one no matter what but me it all depends on the pattern weather I use one. Do you always use matting? Why? Just curious maybe you will sway me lol.
I also have planned to use the briwax on the boxes I have for Blackbird design Casting a spell. I am hoping to at least have the box ready and the mat boards for them done. I heard they stitch up quick so I will have everything done beforehand I think, then just stitch them.
I still have to finish the snowman too so that's on my list. I really wanted to start my chatelaine Alpine Gardens this summer but that I sadly think is not going to happen. I still have my January Fairy and Inspiration on my UFO list to complete too.
Anyways I have rambled on enough off to finish my book and sleep
