So, anyway, preparing for the new boy kept me busy last week (I mean, we couldn't possibly bring a new baby home without buying a plethora of toys, kitty beds, new food, a super cute collar, brushes for that gorgeous coat, etc. etc.) and bonding with him has kept me happily busy this week.
I haven't put a single stitch into Wheels since my last post... partially b/c I've been busy loving up on our new boy, and partially b/c it is a serious mojo stealer.
So, although I could regale you with tales of some gorgeous things I've seen (my step mom was showing me some bee-autiful silk ribbon embroidery, and some sigh worthy things in a mag called Inspirations (ever seen it? It's ridiculously expensive - from Australia, I believe - and has seriously drool worthy embroidery - and an adorable thimble holder cross stitch pattern my SM copied for me - I think I might have to finagle my way into a subscription), and a super cool little gadget called a "Spinster" (which is used to really easily make perfect twisted decorative cording - for ornaments, pillows, etc. - out of simple DMC floss, and which I, of course, had to have immediately - thus a little hop to nordicneedle.com to buy it), I will restrain myself... uhh... wait... I didn't, did I? I just rambled on and on and on... with way too many parentheses and hyphens... sorry about that. :)
That's it for now. Hopefully next time I post I'll have a progress pic and maybe even a new start. Thanks so much for your comments and your birthday wishes! I so love hearing from my blogging cohorts. Happy stitching, and enjoy the rest of your week! ~Robin
*A special note for all you kitty owners out there - Don't worry. We are being very careful in introducing the boys - Roscoe stays in "his room" when we aren't home, and if he seems to be getting on Midnight's last nerve, we put him in there as well.
