More Friday Photos

Here are two more photos from Friday. I didn't download the "after" shot until Sunday. I'm a lot futher along on it now--she has a head and a boot and more clothes. But I did need to put it aside for the birthday stitching.

Friday morning/Friday evening
I've finished two of the three things I needed to finish for the birthday present. I temporarily lost the piece I was stitching for this exchange. D'oh! I knew it was with the Curly Q Ewe; fortunately I did have a photo of that from Friday (see below). If not for that photo, I would have been convinced I left it at the library. I should finish the stitching on the gift tonight and with any luck it will be in the mail by Wednesday. And then it will probably take six months to arrive. That's about my average. Too bad my MIL is coming after the birthday. She could take it home and it would be there in a minute. Okay, that's too much information, isn't it? Here's the thing. I HATE SURPRISES. Once I buy (or make!) your present, I want you to know! I want to tell you and show you photos... I am seriously eight years old. Between the surprise problem and the addiction to cherry sour balls (and other plastic candy), I seriously cannot be in my forties. Cannot.

super stitching!!!! I am also a sour cherry ball lover but my alltime favorite are Atomic Fireballs,
you just can't beat a fireball/jawbreaker!!! You are never to old.

Great. Thanks to you I may have to stop at Cracker Barrel for a hard candy fix while driving to NH tomorrow.

I'm with the early commenter. I'm an atomic fireball fan. Though, right now, my candy jar at work is filled with miniature tootsie rolls and tootsie pops. BTW, I see nothing wrong with not acting your age. You don't look it, either, so it's fitting! ;)

I seem to remember something about a sour cherry ball drink....hmm. Glad you found the gift - can't wait to see what it is.

Oh yeah, here's to fireballs and sourballs. mmmmm!

Love your stitching progress! I was wondering if the Sisterhood Pattern had arrived. ;)
