A blurb!

Future Mirabilia's Angel Proclamation


Where has the week gone? It feels like I spent it in the car, actually. Took the kids to meetings, parties, and drove their friends home.


It's been gorgeous here, temperatures in the 60's and we'll hit 70 today and then it will start to cool off. My early tulips, crocuses and daffodils have started to poke through. That's nothing compared to my neighbor though, his is already up about 5 inches. It must be some early daffodils that he has found or maybe they are just getting lots of sun. I try to figure this out every year. It's really nice to have someone that are into gardening living beside you, you always have an interested audience when you have found something really cool or are looking for something specific and it goes both ways.


I've been going through my finishing pile and actually got my Lizzie Kate Flip It's mounted so Oscar can start displaying them in his room. I just got one frame but he can easily change them every month. Then I put some felt on the back of one Mill Hill ornament, finished a needleroll and started finishing another one and I'm working on finishing JN's September Song into a bell pull. I need to pull out my iron today so I can press the edges on that needleroll, I just can't do the hem stitch without having it pressed down good. We were watching Borat yesterday and I couldn't be bother to do it in the middle of the movie.


So I haven't gotten that much stitching done on the angel from Angel Proclamation, it's just like a blurb at the moment. I have to take out the purple too since I stitched it in the wrong purple color, but I will wait with that until I have gotten a bit further on it. Then it won't feel like I'm taking out that much.


My other project this week is to start painting the living room! I pulled out the quarter gallon test paint can yesterday and just painted some up close to the green in the kitchen and up against the wood trim. It looks like it's going to work out well and Anders liked it quite a bit. So I'm off tomorrow to get more paint, but I will try to get the taping done today.

Your Miriabilia is going to be very pretty on that fabric. I am looking forward to seeing what color you paint your living room.
