A New Start

Here is my February start for the Christmas All Year Long SAL.



It is the 2007 JCS Cat's Whiskers Design Studio Design. I hope that once I finish it I will be psyched enough to do the finishing or will I just put it in a pile to finish at a later time.
I had a good mail week. I received the new JCS issue and there are some very nice projects in it. If you see it on the newsstand check it out.



I also got the new Long Dog Design book.



I love this designer. I stitched Moulin Rouge in 2005.
I also got the new issue of Fine Art & Antiques, eye candy!
That's about it tonight. I am going to Zumba in the morning and then lunch with Myra. It should be a great Saturday.
Have a great weekend!

Your tree is looking gorgeous. I can't wait to start mine now!

I can't wait to get my JCS mag as I saw one of the designs in; the one with the Shaker box. It's beautiful.

Such a cute start, Chris! Myra was the one who actually got me started "finishing as I stitch" and I'm so thankful... Otherwise, they just end up piled in a drawer somewhere!!

Have a great lunch--tell Miss Myra I said "hi!"
