Another new start
I started this firetruck the other day for a baby memorial quilt. They wanted the color blue or anything to do with baby boys. All boys like firetrucks and they lik dogs so I thought this would be a cute piece. It's by Diane Arthurs of Imaginating.
I am still working on the heart piece. My sister bought me a small magnifying lamp to clip on to the pattern and that has made a big difference. So much easier to see and read. I may just get an ott lamp sometime in the future.
These past few days have been busy so I haven't had much time for stitching. My sister was in town for a couple of days so Thursday afternoon and Friday morning I was with her and mom. We went to the mall shopping, played games, etc. Thursday I was so sick though, my asthsma was flaring up something awful. I've had this stupid cough for a couple of weeks now carried over from my cold. It's been a long time since I've felt like this. We also went into Hobby Lobby as I needed floss. While in there I saw a board game I had never seen before and if I had the money for it I would have bought it. It was Stitchopoly. I had never seen it before. Maybe next year. This year I'm trying very hard not to use my credit cards unless an emergency;, (like if my teeth go bad, or if I have to take my cat to the Vet, etc.) So far I've been very good but the year is still young.
Our weather is getting better! Yesterday was 30 and today is already 40. It'll be 30's and 40's for the next week! Maybe it'll melt the snow. I love seeing the icicles melt off the roof. Most of them are gone except for a couple that got really thick.
Well, until next time......Happy Stitching!
