Friday Night Sew-in

Friday, as it turns out, was a very very productive day! A little incentive was the Friday Night Sew-in and the drawing this week-end for the participants.

Started early by working on my QOV for a few hours. I'm ready to put on the first border. My back was aching pretty bad and I didn't think it would help to keep working in the sewing room. (sorry, photos looked awful so I will not post them)

In the evening I chose to cross stitch & watch TV. I'm making good time in my LHN SAL "The Library". The center portion, the door, is another quite boring section. Lots of solid spaces. It makes for easy stitching while watching the Olympics.

In todays mail I received a package from Anita's. The 3rd ornament in the LHN Ornament SAL "Snowy Pines" and the design #1 of the SYHO SAL "A Life Lived For Others" by Glendon Place.

We had our taxes DONE today. Words cannot say what I feel. We must pay again. I thought I had really figured our deductions close enough that we should break even. Not even close! I'm about to pull my hair out!!! I hate to end on a downer, sorry.


  1. Hi Barb, Your blog is beautiful. I love your LHN Library, I haven't been game to start that one yet. Lovely to see you over at my blog. Everyone's kind comments are very encouraging.

  2. Your stitching looks great! I am awfully sorry to hear about your taxes, thoguh.

  3. Wow, nice progress on The Library.

  4. I really like the library design. You always pick such interesting designs to stitch!
    Sorry about the taxes, since we are in the same boat we should make it a stitching cruise lol
