Long Time No Post

My mother sent me an email today saying that she was disappointed that I hadn't updated my blog since February 15!  It's not that I don't have things to post, I just haven't had time.  We're going to fix that right now.

First up...I joined the Hardanger Accessories Club offered by the Nordic Needle this year.  I enjoy doing a little bit of Hardanger every now and then and the project appealed to me.  The first project on the agenda was the Hardanger design for the top of this beautiful box.


Do you like it?  I just received the next project in the club - it's a scissors keep.  As soon as it is stitched, I will share a photo with you.

Today I worked on some finishing.  Remember my cute little pattern book from the Attic Sampler Symposium?  My friend Judy asked me to finish hers.  They are so easy to put together and so cute when finished!



Well, I'm off to watch the Oscars!
