So I planned to get a bit more stitching done this week as I watched baseball but Tuesday night's game commanded ALL my attention. Homer Bailey of my beloved Cincinnati Reds pitched a no hitter! Amazing! And my oldest son was lucky enough to actually be in the ball park. He was thrilled to witness it and believes he will probably never be a part of it again as it is such a rare occurrence. I did get the basket almost totally stitched on my Victory Garden by Nan of Threadwork Primitives from the Ladies Prim Society.
And after drooling over the new Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers charts that are starting this month, I decided to pull out my Anniversaries of the Heart and put some more time in on it.
I finished the block for October and started the one for November. I like that the border on the November block is regular and was easy to count - good selection for stitching and baseball "watching".
Now I really have to take some time and sit down and decide what to put in the spaces for personalization. The November block has a large space and I don't have any family events to commemorate in that month, so I'm thinking that a little quote about Thanksgiving may be a nice touch.
And you need to go and check out my friend Marsha's blog, Everybody Loves Clark. She is having a great giveaway and I can't believe I'm sharing this with you as I would really love to win these charts - LOL! Anyway pop over and become a follower and sign up. She was working on getting up to 100 followers and it looks like she made it but the more the merrier!
Okay off to stitch a bit more and watch some baseball! A great afternoon in my book!
