I'm not sure what's going on with me this week, but I've fallen way behind on just about everything from laundry to blog reading. Maybe it's the Olympics capturing my attention, or that plus I'm just not focusing on anything. Well, at least everyone has been fed and they all still have underwear!
The smocking guild met tonight, but we were without several members. We are working on a hardanger emery cushion kit. Several of us have done hardanger before, but for others this is their first experience and need a little assistance at times. I'm excited about this little cushion as I've never had an emery that's used to keep your pins and needles sharp. I turned in another Grady gown - woot! And I have two more all seamed and ready to smock.
The temperatures are dropping and could go into single digits tonight. So of course, with this being a holiday weekend, we're going camping, lol! Not going very far, just the next town over - Walla Walla. My dh is into geocaching, and there are a few new ones he hasn't found yet over there. Well, we have an Arctic Fox travel trailer, so we'll find out just how it does in arctic temperatures! We'll have full hook-ups and we'll take full advantage, keeping the trailer nice and toasty. :D I should have a chance to spend some quality time stitching. Now to decide what to take along.
In honor of Valentines Day this week, I will share with you another stunner from the Victoria Sampler trunk show - Heirloom Anniversary Sampler. The color scheme called for in this design gives it an antique feel, but oh so sumptuous and rich.
