Monday..... Schmonday

Greetings Friends,

I hope this Monday finds you well.  
Mondays are always well, Mondays.  The realization that the weekend is over and my stitching time is limited until the next weekend rolls around.  Monday.....Schmonday!  
With all the pieces I have that need to be stitched I don't have time for Mondays or Tuesday or....well you get the picture.

The weekend brought some sad news for a friend.  She lost her 17 year old dog.  
All pet lovers out there know how heartbreaking this can be.  
I stitched a little memorial for her and plan to give it to her tomorrow.  
I hope she will see this and remember all the joy Bootsie gave her over the years.

 I've also kept my BAPs streak going.

Called for Fibers and Linen

And not to break the BAP streak....
I received Janet Reid in the mail today.
This sampler caught my eye the minute it was released at market.
The colors in this sampler are unbelievable.
It is also the first time I have stitched with wool fibers.
I think this will receive my attention tonight!

Thanks for stopping by and sharing a part of your day.
I love to hear from you and appreciate your kind words.

Keep on Stitchin'
Nan

Beautiful memorial you stitched for your friend. Love what you stitched so far on Cinderella. Oh Janet Reid is going to be a beauty. I didn't know it recommended wools. I have stitched with Sampler wools before and and it is nice. I did learn not to have my lengths very long because it can become fluffy when it goes thru the linen many times. Hope I'm explaining correctly. Looking forward to seeing your start.
love Annette
