Another finish and a start!

On Saturday I met Barbara in Belfast again and this time Evelyn (no blog) joined us. Evelyn is from Portland and I picked her up on the way north. We had a great day starting at the Belfast Free Library for a book sale and then moving on to the Co-op for some stitching in the sunshine. I was able to finish my first Christmas ornament of the year which I hope won't be my last.

I was also able to put a fair amount into the start of Block 3 of C@HRH. There won't be much stitching progress for me over the next 6 weeks because my current class has a huge reading and paper writing component. Hang in there for some random updates as I'm able to get some stitching in.

I had such a great time, Patti!! And I was tempted to wear my Oscar mittens to bed. Niek gave me such a strange look, though, that I figured that might be pushing things. ;)

Dang, I was signed in on my email account again, which is not my regular blogger account. Too many passwords/sign-ins/etc. The "Barbara" is me. :P

It sounds like you all had a fine day ... after reading Barbara's blog, I know she certainly did! I think your Christmas ornament is adorable and the HRH, well, what can one say! Though I haven't been caught up in that series myself ... I enjoy watching the progress of those who have ... beautiful stuff.

That ornie is so cute! Congrats on your finish - and on finishing that last square of C@HRH - that was a doosie!

First a library book sale, then stitching at the co-op together with friends sounds like a wonderful day.
Your ornament looks so pretty.
