I really want to thank each and everyone for their comments on our new Grand Baby Madalyn. She and my DD Amanda are both doing great and will go home from the hospital today (which will make Gibby very happy). I am going shopping later today for things she needs that she didn't get at her shower.....watch out WalMart's Baby Dept, Granny is on the hunt for baby things.
My Monopoly Monday turned into part of Tuesday too. I finished stitching all the outlines of the blocks on page 3 and decided to finish the side by doing the ones on page 4 also. Next week I'll start filling in the properties and think I will finally attempt the dreaded Community Chest also. A couple of more weeks and I may be half done with the board.
My daughter wanted to use "Hello Kitty" for Maddie so I thought it would make a fun stitch on a blanket. I was sooooo wrong. The design is too small and the blanket is just crap (excuse the language) to stitch on. So I will frog the stitches I've already done and do something else with the blanket. Still wanting to stitch the "Hello Kitty" baby I decided to do it on a white opalescent fabric (I just love the look of the opalescents) and am much happier with how it is coming out.
This is the outline and now I'll start filling her in. Manda doesn't like pink so I have decided to do it in lavender. I'm going to add Maddie's name and birthdate and then make it into a little pillow she can hang on the crib.
I was so frustrated that I also had to start another project. LOL Not much to show yet but the border on Lizzie Kate's BOO Club Double Flip is started. I think this one will be as much fun as the Christmas one so looking forward to spending time on it between the SAL's and "Tea".
That's what I'm up to.....how about you?
Until Next Time......Happy Stitching
