Weekend's Work

I didn't get any stitching done this weekend because I spent every free minute working on finishing my baby blanket. Yesterday evening at about 8:00 I finished the last color round and wove in all the ends. Today we had a surprise baby shower at work for the expectant mother but I'm waiting to give her the blanket until her family shower on Sunday. My hands are killing me but I'm pretty proud of the accomplishment! I hope she likes it. The colors in the photo aren't that great but in person I'm really happy with the color combination.
Tonight I will be doing some exchange stitching - finishing the front of one piece and possibly starting on the back. I need to choose something to stitch for a birthday in April and I'm having the hardest time. The recipient is a VERY talented seamstress and stitcher and I think that's what's holding me back. Maybe I will look through my charts again to see if something sings to be stitched.

Hope you had a good Monday!

It is unbelievable that I found you with only a few bits of information. I spoke to Tracey the other day inquiring about Cowboy. She said you adopted him. I was his original owner. I've read some of your blog and sounds like he's doing well. Just so you know, I absolutely refused to put him down even though a vet recommend I do so. I love Cowboy and wished he worked out for our family. I'm so glad he is with you.
