I did get a little stitching done this week .. this is the PALS sampler, designed by Blue Ribbon Designs .. at the Pals retreat in October, this is going to be the middle for my signature RR that I'm participating in .. can't wait to see it surrounded by signatures of all my friends at the retreat :) I've been thinking a signature RR with all you wonderful bloggers would be fun too .. maybe a project for 2008 ...

and this is Merry Christmas by Glory Bee from the 10th anniversary JCS ornament magazine. Nice fun stitch that I think will go pretty quickly ...

Thanks for all the compliments on my finish and frame choice for Good Things .. funny, but I was reading another blog and she had finished Good Things too, but her's looked different than mine .. guess what? I totally forgot the two borders around the words! lol .. and not one of you mentioned my goof?? *smile* I really like the way it looks with the frame, without the borders, so I think I'm just going to frame it as is .. and next time I stitch it I'll add the border lol ...

Still having issues with the wallpaper in the kitchen .. this weekend is the end .. if I can't find someone to help figure out the problem, we're going to re-texture and paint instead .. the big problem is that I LOVE the wallpaper we found for the kitchen .. it's perfect for us and the space .. and I just am not ready to give up quite yet .. but it's driving me crazy having a new frig I can't use yet! ahhh the joys of remodeling! off to bed for me .. the dogs are begging! lol

Book of Ornaments??? Sounds interesting Ruth! I have one of Laurie's ornaments from last year .. but I don't have one from you .. that will be my mission this year! *grin*

Woo Hoo .. I'm an enabler!!! You'll love stitching it Monique :)

I'm grateful for my dogs ...

Love your WIPS! What a great idea for an RR.
I just thought you'd decided not to stitch the border! It looks great either way

Love both your WIPs. The Cross Stitch Pals one is a fantastic idea for your RR.

Sorry -- I initially commented as my office self. How boring is that....

Hey babe-- love the Pals progress. I need to remember to order one of those. And heavens! What to do for a signature center??? Oh the scheming I have to do!!!

Good luck on your "mission." lol You'll have a very easy time of it I think-- I'm bringing something like 6-10 ornies annnnnd I think I'm doing one to go into my gift exchange parcel (going with a Christmas theme there-- what about you?).
