Here's another Fredericksburg sampler-ready house. Perfect, isn't it? Right down to the real magnolia leaf Christmas decor.
Except there's always a fly in the ointment, isn't there? Sometimes others just don't share your vision. Especially when there's a sale at Lowe's on robin's egg blue paint. It's even more jarring IRL.
Speaking of blue houses, "Gone Fishing" is progressing nicely.
I didn't think I'd enjoy the palestrina-knot and satin-stitched acorns and leaves, and thought about just cross-stitching them. I'm glad I took the trouble; they were fun.
Pink is demonstrating some of my New Year's resolutions. I'm going to try to hang my clothes up in the closet instead of draping them over the railing--which is clearly visible from the front door. After all, the occasional neighbor and UPS guy really don't need to inspect my lingerie wardrobe when they come to the door, now do they?
More exercise. LOTS more exercise. Put the shoes on!
And stitching, lots more stitching. Take the shoes off. The heck with exercise, eating right, paying the bills on time, studying for exams, cleaning the house or hanging up my clothes--there are projects to complete.
Oh. Complete some projects from the WIP tubs.
Happy New Year, all!
