It's a Wrap

February's over. It's a short month, so we shouldn't be surprised when it's done, but...
The plan was simple:
Continue working on Souvenir Sampler. I got very far on this. I'm not quite done, but I'm impressed with myself.
Finish Sissy's laptop bag. Not a stitch. Sissy complained about this on Sunday, so I do have to move it to the top of the list.
Stitch two more ornaments for family Christmas presents.
I finished the last of January's on 2/3, and I have the feeling I'll finish the HIHN Sheep and PS Fishing Santa by March 3. Nothing like starting out behind.

And, as for the house, we organized the craft room so that we could put a ginormous elliptical trainer in there. We painted the kitchen and the dining room. And for two Sundays, I went out with Sissy looking for her new house. So you can see I have good reasons not to have reached my goals.

I'm glad to hear you made good progress on your sampler. I can't wait to see it when it's done.

Unfortunately, my Olympic stitching fell prey to a household project (scraping 100 years of paint off of our window trim) and an online class.

Hi Anna - Just wanted to drop in and say thanks so much for your supportive comment (and funny story) regarding our burglary. I've just received a replacement computer, and I'm burning up the internet tonight trying to catch up!

Barbara, I'm glad you thought it was funny. I realized after I posted that it might not be as funny as *I* thought it was.

Cheryl, girlfriend, I feel your pain. My trim remains unpainted. We did buy awesome, covers in one go trim paint at MAB, though. Highly recommend it. (Used it on the bedroom windows. Now the rest of the trim mocks me.)
