Another finish!

I feel like I'm stitching in slow motion.  I haven't been in the mood for stitching these last few weeks.  I think my mind is on quilting.  I have, however, managed another Crazy January Challenge finish. 

 Wonderful Time of the Year by Heart in Hand

The buttons are just sitting on top.  I am not sure how I'll finish this and I don't want to worry about melting the buttons with the iron. 

I am almost done with another project, not cross stitch though.  Maybe tomorrow I'll have it done.  I also plan to show the quilt blocks I worked on last weekend at my quilt retreat.  I have 28 blocks done..... each with 40 pieces.  There are 28 more blocks, but of a much simpler design.

Tonight my husband and I are feeding the entire cast (60+) of The Sound of Music.  The play opened last night for local senior citizens.  We'll go tonight..... and tomorrow night.... and Sunday afternoon.  Somehow, when it's your own kids on that stage, you can't imagine missing one minute.  The boosters feed the kids the entire last week since they're working so hard.  We volunteered.... and after much discussion... will be feeding them goulash.  I know...... goulash?  to high school kids?  It's better to just accept it and move on.  It's a long story.  The cookies I spent yesterday and today preparing look awesome, though! 


  1. Well, isn't that a cute piece--I've never seen that one before. Are you going to frame it or make it into a long pillow or what?

    Just don't tell the kids it's called goulash--make up some exotic sounding name and they'll love it :) Have fun! I never get tired of The Sound of Music...

  2. What a cute finish!

    Don't tell them what it's called. Give it some exotic name, the more foreign sounding the better. My mum got me to eat the weirdest things by telling me that it was "foreign"

  3. Love your finish, I don't think I've seen that one before. Can't wait to see how you "finish, finish" it.

    I love TSoM! If they're hungry enough from working hard they'll eat anything! Enjoy the shows.
