The Mad Stitcher

Move over Mr. Hatter, there's not room here for the both of us. 

So here's why I'm a  Mad stitcher.  Next week I'll be volunteering at a day-camp from 9-3pm M-F.  There will be over 100 little girls.  EEEEK!  lol  I have done this for the past 2 years and I really enjoy it but it is soo exhausting.  This year I am supposed to be in charge of the crafts. Wish me luck and if you don't hear from me by Next Sunday call a search party. ;)

I managed to finish my Needlebook to Debbie Jo and sent that off to her today. I am really proud of my first attempt. I just hope she likes it.  I got the one she made yesterday and it was truly lovely.  I'll post a pic of the one I sent after she gets it.

I did not finish the wedding chart but it is getting closer to being done.  I'll post pic as soon as it's done.
