Well, does anyone know where last week went? lol It just flew on by me, and sadly time didn't fly because I was stitching. I did find a new project to start on Wednesday, funny how it's so much harder to finish a project than it is to find one to start! lol I found a Dimensions House-Mouse kit on sale @ JoAnne's. Growing up my mom always used tons of House-Mouse stationary and had some of the rubber stamps. I regret passing up the Making Lemonade kit (three mice drinking out of a pitcher of lemonade) when I saw it on clearance @ Hobby Lobby last spring. This kit is called Hot Stuff, with a mouse roasting a marshmallow using the fire breath from a pepper eating mouse. The kits even come with a House-Mouse foot-printed mat for finishing the piece.
I started the piece this weekend and got the Hot Stuff across the top stitched. I'm not sure if I like the stitches between the orange & red in the letters that called for a mix of 1 strand red, 1 stand orange. When you look at the piece up close it looks the stitches are funny because some show one of the colors more than the other, oh well, from a distance it helps blend between the colors.
Hope everyone had a great last week and good beginning to this one! I am off to watch some DVDs that need to go back to the video store & catch up on blog reading! Nick
