Coming along......slowly







I have been working on a tablecloth for a friend of mine......since November? Has that much time already gotten past me? If I had not been lured away with spring fever, playing out in the mud, and on the computer as much as I have been, I would have made more progress. One thing I have made myself a goal for, is to finish this tablecloth within the next 6 weeks. I have a short side panel done, and the eyelet swirls done all the way around. Now I still have leaves and roses to finish. If I did not have to clean house, cook meals, and run errands, I could do nothing but stitch all day! So I am determined to be more disciplined and will probably not post here until the weekend is over. Although I need to say, with all of the rain we got last night, I will also do some much needed work outside.{: The photos above show the picots, roses and leaves. I can't wait to have this done and to hear how it looks on my friends table. So for all of you, dear friends, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I will catch up with you next week!

I'm the same way, Kathleen- I think "if only I had more time to sew"...but then I think, if I didn't spend so much time outside with the animals, or on the computer, I would have more time to sew!! Oh, well, discipline is NOT in my vocabulary...sigh...
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
