SFS Update - April

So once again I have $0 for this month if only because I'm still working on Emma's announcement.  Didn't get a lot done simply because I lost my desire to stitch it.  I want to change projects but I know I need to finish it.  So I did two quick, free kits, that came in the last issue of my cross-stitching magazine that were cards.  I'm giving them to my Mom and mother-in-law for Mother's day.  I had already decided to make a card for them and was just having issues finding a pattern I liked. 

After finishing the two cards I felt better about working on Emma's gift. Lots of stuff going on though, Thomas & I are getting ready to move, he gets promoted and we are having family & people over for a party.  It will be fun but a little chaotic with everything going on.

  1. I know I commented this morning, but apparently it got lost in the Neverwhere. I'm sure it was a brilliant and witty comment as I had just finished a large mug of caffeine and I'm always brighter at 5am. But alas it is gone and now you are stuck with post-work me.
    The butterflies are lovely and I have a soft spot for the orange one since you managed to stitch that in a car while hanging out with us.
    I really hope the move goes smoothly for you.

    1. Hahah yeah I've had that happen a couple of times on me. I go to hit publish and suddenly - no reply. :(

      The second comment is never as good as the first one though. Ah well.

      And thanks. ^_^

  2. I second Nancy's comment about the orange butterfly...we watched you stitching it in a car and THAT was awesome! I cannot wait until you are done with your move. And please tell Thomas I'm really excited about his promotion, he's a great guy....he has to be to have you as a lovely wife!!
