Seeing Double

After that jury duty stent I did in June where I stitched FOUR of the same thing while sitting all week, I now find myself stitching two of everything small that I start. Strange I know!!! I stitched Love (Carriage House Samplings) and then started over and stitched it again as a gift for Angi and modified her's with that little heart. Here you see my Love pincushion, all finished.

Then I stitched Alison that cute pudgie and since I had the fabric and floss out, I started another one after finishing hers and just mixed up the colors. Don't ask me why I keep doing this, I have no clue. But it's been good for my finishing skills, and I don't have to put the floss away quite so quickly!

This is a piece I am NOT making two of!!! It's an update on my Repro sampler from my Rockome class this past June. (1907 Czech/Slovak Sampler" by Marjorie Mueller). I keep plugging away on it, and I plan to finish it in 2007.

I heard today there will be NO office move for a month. Telecommunications is holding things up since there is no phone service in the new building. That means I'll be in my office living among the boxes that I've packed. (OH YIPPEE!!!) We finally get to see the building on Thursday and I can't wait to scope out the new office I'll have. But first we have a baby shower to do tomorrow. The only other person in the office that helps me is going to have a baby and she's not sure if she'll come back afterwards. We're training a new temp as I speak. I expect to be in Boston/Salem in December and someone has to be able to watch the shop. And since it's tomorrow, I best get to bed.

We are moving offices in Sept and I will be on vacation. Will be interesting to find all my stuff when I return. I love the little ones. I made about 60 mini stockings once. Kept filling the material until all gone. Gave all the duplicates away.
