If you think you have money left over in the bank.....think again

Dear Self:

Thank-you for not believing your eyes when the checking account balance said you had LOTS of extra money left over at the end of the month.  You know your eyes don't always see things as they are....hence - taking too much food on your plate or seeing a chart and thinking you'll "just whip it up" in a day or two.   So when you were trying to convince me I could afford to get these two canvases, I'm so happy I waited and looked again later BECAUSE you lied to me!!    Yes, I totally forgot to subtract out my rent for the month :(  so these little beauties will need to wait for another day.  Both of them are by Sandra Vargas, I love her stuff and doing witches is one of my favorite themes.  I would totally love to all of her Wizard of Oz series, but alas not going to happen.  Oh well, I have so much stiff to do in my stash, this was really more of a want than a need.  But don't you just love them????

I have been doing some stitching this weekend.  I decided to work on my SB - Angel's Song.  I managed to finish 4 bands.   One of which had been started at my stitching get together a while back, so maybe 3 1/2 bands would be more accurate.  The next one is a huck stitch, which isn't hard, just not my favorite to do.  It is basically a running stitch of sort - you can see it second row after the second line of words, only this one is slightly larger, but same colors.  So I'm putting it away for awhile again, until I'm in the mood to do that row.

I love this one, and I really do enjoy stitching the rows, especially the ones that are just one type of stitch - goes fast and you feel like you've really accomplished something.  Once it's done with this one I have SB's Promise ready to start!!  I like having one or two band samplers in my WIP's, they are a nice change, and I love working with silk threads.

So what is up for next weekend?  Not sure yet, maybe it's time to bring out the angels for a day or two of stitching.



  1. Ha! I forgot to subtract my mortgage once and felt like a millionaire! It was nice while it lasted! Your bands look really nice!

  2. Angel's song looks amazing. I love the row of vines and flowers you just completed. Beautiful stitching. I hope you are able to get those Sandra Vargas designs soon. I have a few of her charts and I can't wait to stitch them too.
