january 3 - the best laid plans

I was all set to start a third project from my list today, when I realized that I have less than two weeks to stitch up a baby sampler for a christening gift for my nephew's little girl. Ack! So I (luckily) found a perfect pattern that I already had, ran to Michael's on my break for some threads that I needed and will get started tonight. I wanted to stick with my challenge, so I just added this design to my (already too long) list. The design is called Gabrielle Rose and it is from La-D-Da.



I will be stitching over one on 25ct. ecru evenweave. so it will be rather small. I'm not sure yet whether I will frame it or finish it some other way. I guess I should just worry about stitching it first!
This is as far as I got so far.



I also brought one of my UFOs to work on while on my break, but that didn't happen either. Oh well, tomorrow is another day!

Thanks for visiting!

    I hope you will soon get rid of the sinus infection.
