On another note, and something I'm more inclined to do...I found this online while looking for something else (isn't that always the way??)...
It's a mystery stitchery by Brenda Gervais. If you don't have a local needlework shop, just Google "Birds of A Feather" mystery stitchery. You'll find lots of online shops offering this project. I've been feeling the urge to stitch lately...along with the urge to piece a quilt top. My friend Michelle (MadRedHare) is doing a block of the month feature on her blog, and I've made two of the four blocks assigned. She just sent out the next two blocks, so I hope to work on those sometime this weekend. Just before the first of the year, I decided that I wanted to do an embroidery project...a square a day, just like the projects I've read about on OPB's (other people's blogs). By the end of January, I had my cloth ready...one inch squares drawn 19 x 19 with four squares at the top for the year. 365 blocks. By the end of February, I had stitched around the borders of maybe 1/3 of the blocks. I pick it up in spurts, and I'm hoping that by the end of May I'll have all 365 blocks outlined. My stitch-a-day plan hasn't worked out so far, but there's no reason (like I have concrete "rules" about much of anything?) I can't run my year from June to June. Sounds like a plan...
Better get to work!

Oh I keep wanting to do that inchies project, too. It looks like something I might be able to handle.
