I did however accomplish a lot by getting my kits together. My hubby stayed home with Brianna while I took Jessica, my 17yr old and Caitlyn, my 4 month old with me. The stitching bug has now reached Jessica. Which is nice, I like that we have something in common and we can help each other with our obsession. (not sure if if really hurts..because we keep expanding our collection..oh well i LOVE it!).
She found two nice patterns she is going to stitch, one for her brother and one for a friend. I was working on 2 but have since added 4 more. That will be it for now as far as having any WIP's. Note to self.. make a list of acronyms and their meanings- when I first started reading blogs a few weeks ago I was reading about frogging, WIP's and ORT's. I had no clue what those were..even though I've been stitching since I was 16 -- I truly thought frogging was when you stitch then stretch the floss to a area on the fabric that was far away..because you had to jump over there. LOL I know what it means now..but had to search Google to figure it out along with the other acronyms. I had to share with my friend Lesli who has a blog as well -- as it was her blog that I first saw that word..because it's part of her name.
If you haven't already you should check it out her blog> fabulousfrogger.blogspot.com I blame my obsession on her :)
With two of my kids in tow, we went shopping, stopped at three different stores..to get all the floss, fabric and misc. things we needed for our kits. Here's a before pic:
Sunday, Brianna was feeling better and I got a hold of a few 50% off coupons from Michael's to get the last of what I needed for my kits. I spent their nap time Sunday organizing all my kits. Let me tell you a little something about me .. I'm have OCD when it comes to organization... so these kits feed right into my obsession (well in this case 2 of my obsessions -- stitching too!!) Here's an after pic:
Each kit contains the pattern, floss, scissors and fabric. The last thing I need to add is a pic on the outside of each box so that I know what's inside of it. Hubby is also happy becuase I'm not taking up the dining room table anymore ... for the time being ;)
It's now Sunday evening and Jessica and Jared are in Rhode Island with their dad. Brianna and Catilyn are in bed sleeping for the night.. and I can't wait to finish this blog so I can open a container and stitch for an hour tonight. Good night for now..
