Count down to Lauren Sauer class and my birthday!

Not this weekend but the next is the Lauren Sauer class and my birthday!! Speaking of class I have a couple of pictures to share of the piece.
The only things left are about six more tags. (the empty space in the left hand corner, 2 are done)
Here is Quaker Diamonds by Rosewood Manor.And here is my new start, Drawn thread ABC Sampler. I just couldn't contain myself I had to start it!I have off tonight and my goal is to work on my class piece but I have a feeling that my hands are going to be drawn to my sampler piece. All well... My birthday month starts tomorrow so I can do what I want lol.
Happy Memorial Day everyone!

To stitch or to un-stitch...

I have some things to share...
As everyone knows I have re-modeled my bathroom. I bought this awesome shower curtain but couldn't find a curtain for the window to match it so I decided to make a valence. I went and bought another shower curtain and cut it to make it. Isn't it cute!? I have never made one before but I think it came out great.
I have also finished the third chart on the Country Cottage Seascape series. Only two parts left! (They haven't came out yet) When I took this picture I realized that I left out the stars on the top of chart three but I will add them when I get the next chart. I am moving on to another WIP because for the past couple of days I have un-stitched on this chart more then I have stitched.
Maybe I will work on my Quaker Diamonds. I really need to work on my class piece but its almost done so I keep putting it off. Geeeesh... I have talked myself into working on my class piece. Off I go....

I have been trying to update my blog since 9 this morning! I need a new computer this one is retarded! Anyway...
This past weekend was the annual May Retreat at Salty Yarns in Ocean City MD. I decided to work there instead of attend the retreat so I worked Saturday and Sunday cutting fabric. I really enjoy cutting fabric and working in the shop. I would rather quit my job and just work at Salty Yarns every day, even though my stash would end up filling my whole house to the ceilings.
On the stitching front, I haven't got much done because of work and the bathroom remodeling project but here is some update photos...
This my quilt. It only needs a small brown boarder around the edges and a bigger boarder after that. So it is almost completly done.Here is Quaker diamonds. I haven't worked much on this piece.
Here is my class piece, not much progress but it is getting there.Here is the Country Cottage new series. The third piece came out and I am behind! This is what I plan to work on tonight.Stitch and Bitch is tomorrow night and I plan on taking picture and getting a lot of stitching done so I will be back in a couple of days with pictures of that and of the bathroom. (It was finally finished today) I only need a curtain for the window!! Of all the things to forget, I forgot the first thing you see when u walk in uhg!
I want to wish everyone a belated Mother's Day!
