I have had no less than three, count them, three emails from concerned stitchers asking how I'm coming along with my bargello. Well, let me just tell you...the bargello is a thing of the past! I took a little sabbatical last weekend and it is amazing what one can accomplish when there is nothing to do but stitch. I've now moved on to the inside panel (the FINAL panel).
It may just be possible that I can get this sucker done in time for the workshop on the 17th. I do have to admit that it is looking pretty though. Even if it is a pain in the ass.
And I wanted to share with you a little something I bought for myself during my stitching weekend - a handmade velvet strawberry. Isn't it the prettiest thing? It's sharing the spotlight with a tomato and stickpin that I received as a gift.
And Valerie surprised me with some amazing things off my wishlist. I can't wait to dig into that little charm pack of Blackbird fabric! Thank you so much, Valerie!!! Something else to stitch for my A&E wall - I can't wait!
And in case you're wondering what I was smoking when I came up with the title for this blog post. Well...wonder no more.
I am grateful for a weekend of laughs, tears, and Beyoncé.
