So Long Ago...Yet, Seeems Like Yesterday!!

So nineteen years ago tonight, I was at my rehearsal dinner. Tomorrow is my nineteenth wedding anniversary. Boy, it seems like a long time ago some days and then others it seems like it was just yesterday. We have both grown so much since those days...Next year is a big one...then we will be on to the next twenty! Happy Anniversary, honey!

So, Friday night I went with my bff to a gathering offered by a kind of LNS (about 1.5 hours from my house)...they open the classroom area, those in attendance bring a dish to pass (om gosh- the food!!) and stitch. I haven't laughed that hard in awhile, boy did that feel great! I'm not sure they will allow Mary and I back (at the same time) and when I go next time, I have a picture I have to show those ladies as I described a brides maid dress I wore when much thinner, but still as busty - and it was strapless...another story -and not why I started this back to the reason - I enhanced my stash just a bit. I picked up the linen I wanted for the "Margaret Harris" from BBD Honeysuckle Manor and can't wait to start it but I need to make some progress on another or two before I stitch on that. The lime green linen is for the cupcake fob from Amy Bruecken Designs (who has a new website, by the way - check it out) and I also picked up Bent Creek's Snowman Photo Booth and it is adorable...the third pic down on the strip is going to be done twice - once in this pattern and then for an it! The snowman is being goofy and has carrots like horns...I will do a close up of it later.

And the flowery item in the back - the bag they came in, gonna use it for wrapping paper....

Did some stitching last night. Worked on The Red Flower Sampler shown earlier this month. Couldn't get good enough light to snap a good pic...will update soon. Have to pull fibers for my new fob - that should be a quick stitch and then I have to finish-finish it so I can send a pic to my friend Amy (no I haven't done any finish-finishing yet, Amy, but I will). I have a basket full of finished pieces just waiting to be finish-finished into a pillow, framed, etc. I wish I was better at doing that and I know practice will help that but I'd rather put needle and thread to fabric than sewing machine to fabric - unless constructing a quilt. Need some serious bonding time with the sewing machine with quilts many projects, so little time. I guess my title fits here too - some things seem like yesterday that I started some projects and then when I'm done with it, seems like so long ago.

Thanks for reading and commenting - I am getting used to posting and don't struggle with photos as much. I am really enjoying reading the blogs listed on my page...and many others - I am still listing blogs I am following!

Stitch lots!! Sherry
