I've stitched all on my Lizzie Kate Boo Club Double Flip It piece that I can other than border until another installment is released. "sigh" I am not very patient about waiting either! I did a bit of searching on the net and even asked the LNS where I signed up to get them auto shipped and no where is there mention of when the next one will come out though they do say they will all be out by June. Hell's Bells it's just March! How long do I have to wait? Wah! :( Suer hope I don't lose my ooommph before they get here.
Crabby's March Wind is coming along just fine - could have finished it last night but thought I better try to get some sleep since Monday is a work day you know. If I'd known I was going to be sick to my stomach this morning I would have just stayed up and finished it. LOL I've changed the design up to fit my definition of wind here in Texas which had to include tumbleweeds and dirt as it doesn't ever seem to blow without one or the other here.
I'm hoping to get the sewing urge soon so that I can get these fobs done up and then move on to trying my hand an finishing off the Pinkeeps and Floss Tags. I've done grommets before on overalls that I decorated for my cousin's little girl so the eyelets don't intimidate me but it's been a loooooong time since I've done any sewing.....gonna just have to dive in I guess. I bought my interfacing and batting the other day when I picked up snaps to finish off my Bent Creek Snapper piece so I don't even have the excuse of needing to run to Hancocks. I know once I break out the machine all will be well but just haven't done it yet. I guess I'm a little worried the finishing part will distract me from the stitching part and I am on SUCH a roll! Speaking of finishing I did get my other package with all 4 of my BC Hello My Name Is Boo pieces along with my Mary Garry October Seasonal Momentos mailed off to my Fabulous Finisher Frances this past week and she emailed me yesterday to let me know the arrived safe and sound on Saturday. WooHoo I can't wait to get them home again so I can Gift them out!
Well if I'm gonna get any stitching done I'd best get off here and get to it! Again any suggestions for patterns to coordinate with these pieces for additional stitching accessories would be greatly appreciated.

Well I still haven't managed to get my package mailed to the finisher....too much work - can you imagine my bosses wanting me tow work? How Ruuuude! Hopefully tomorrow. I did get some more stitching done though. Here is the header for Crabby and almost all of the Spider block on Boo Club - all that I have left to finish it is the star that dots the "i" and then it is on to Eek & Creepy. I've emailed the LNS where I signed up to get them shipped automatically to see when (if they even know) more will be released.........

I entered a contest where I had to guess how long Myrna and her husband had been married. I was 1 of 3 who guess 27 years correctly and I won by random drawing! The prize was a pinkeep Myrna made herself. I expected that but I got the cutest card and a pair of pink scissors with a crystal fob too! How sweet was that? I love all of it.Thank you Myrna!
So see I had a legitimate reason to be distracted......back to the grindstone.
I wouldn't be in such a hurry to get this Boo done but I'm shipping all 4 of to my fabulous finisher Frances on Monday so I can gift them to thier new homes soon! I'll be getting back to Crabby's header as soon as I get this one done.....unless of course something else catches my eye. Hee hee hee

I took another detour and worked up another project! It's Mary Garry's October - Seasonal Momentos which is an OOP pattern but I fell in love with it just this week and luckily a friend of mine had it in her stash! So now I'm gonna go work on Boo Club.

Now it's back to Crabby and Boo Club until they post the next installment. Though I've been toying with the idea of stitching something small for Valentine's Day. Hmmmmmm will let you know.

I'm right on track for both projects I think but need to decide if I like the yellow colored floss inside the Boo Club checkered border or not and if not change it out now before I get too far into it to make a change. As it is there would still be quite a bit of frogging to do. I'm not going to use white as the alternate color in the checkerboard but haven't quite made up my mind what other color I will use. LOL
As you can see on Crabby I used my artistic license to change the word "stinks" to "sucks" LOL it just fit me better!!!! Never can tell what changes I might make..........

Well it's not as much as I would like to have completed but here it is! My aim is to get up early tomorrow and get another couple of hours in! I don't guess it's too bad for just a couple of evenings stitchin huh?
I got an update on my LK Double Boo today. The 1st set of patterns are in and will be shipped as soon as they have gathered my floss! Woohooooo! Maybe the package will get here before I leave town at the crack of dawn on Wednesday........listen it's my fantasy and I'll tell it any way I want!
