Finally Picture of my WIP

I finally have enough progress on my WIP to show a picture. Now that I got the heads on the rest of the piece should stitch up quickly. I'm sorry though the Soda just doesn't look good to me. I love strawberries but why contaminate them with ice cream! Yuck and nothing looks or sounds worse to me then Strawberry Ice Cream. I don't like Ice Cream. I know I know, that is unamerican to not like ice cream. My dad isn't big on it and a couple of my nepehews are like me don't like ice cream.
This piece is being done for a special quilt a group I belong to is doing. It has to be received by Jan. 15, so I have to have it in mail Jan 11 or 12 at latest to get there on time. It's going to be close.

We are going to open up our Food Pantry next week. We have plenty of food for right now and feel ready to do it. I am really happy with the way the church has come through for this project. I also am very happy with the amount of money that came in for it too. So we can do some shopping.

Oh I forgot, I found my Light Of Peace piece! I am happy so after this is done I can go finish that off, and give it to the person who has been waiting so patiently for it for at least 5 years now!

Whiskers is meowing for a treat. He had some pork chops yesterday (just a small amount and he thinks there is more in refrigerator, unfortunately the porkchops we had yesterday were left overs from a month ago (they had been in freezer) and I finished them off yesterday. I'll have to find something for him. He's not spoiled is he? Until next time Happy Stitching!

Two or 3 hours later! I want to SCREAM! I have discovered the material I was using is not the material that was sent and is not going to fit this piece. I have to start all over! I want to cry I'm so upset, it's my own carelesness! Here I had the pattern and material together, I must have separated them somehow!

Your PM is looking great!! I know you will have it finished in plenty of time! I hope Whiskers was satisfied with his treat. :-)

Your stitching is very pretty. I'm not sure what pattern and material got mixed up but I send my sympathies, I would be very distressed.

The PM piece looks like it will be very cute, I really like their style and soft faces and colors. I'm so sorry about the mix up on the fabric and pattern though, that would be so frustrating.

I think the piece is looking fantastic and the soda looks great. That is great news about the pantry and the church!!! God is so good!

I am sorry that you are going to have to start over, maybe you wont have too though!! Maybe you will be able to figure something out!!!

That's terrible Barb :o( I guess those are the woes of stitching. Is there someway you can make it fit?

I don't think I've ever met someone that doesn't like ice cream! You're the first :o)
