I finally got to the Asian mart to get my partner's extras, but now I'm unsure about my needlebook.  I love the idea, and I do like it.  It just seems to simple compared to some of the ones we've seen so far.  I may have to rethink it and see if I can jazz it up some before sending.  I'm at least going to keep it through the weekend and see how I feel then.
a) Don't compare your self to the gallery. We are all our greatest critics, which is even more so true when you have others to compare it to.
b) I like simple! Don't try things too fancy with me, Lady.
c) Yours went through the sort facility in Atlanta this morning at 3:22AM. That means you will get it what, tomorrow maybe?!

Thanks for the mini lecture... I needed it.  I figured out what's bothering me about the needlebook and will be tweaking it tomorrow.  I'll send on Monday.  And yes, it sounds as if I'll get an exciting little package tomorrow!  I can't wait.

( Oh; and yes, I do understand the concept of to, too, and two.  How embarrassing Embarrassed)

I am SO CLOSE to being finished, but my wrist is not cooperating.  I had hoped to get it done this weekend, but not quite.  Ah, well... it'll get done in the next few days... but it's *so close*...  :/

On the up side, I'm feeling really good about Plan 3 - it seems the third time was a charm!

hi all, my mummy has been very sick, and i am taking her away to the seaside for a couple of days while she waits to see her doctor. i'm not sure if i'll have access to the internet down there, so if you can't catch me that's why.

people in my group, please continue to pm me when you send or receive, and i'll record all details when i get back.

if anyne has any problems or questions that can't wait til i return, please get in touch with the lovely Ramona Q who will sort you out quick smart.

sorry for the inconvenience, and i'll be in touch asap. we're only going for three days, so hopefully it won't be a problem.

essie x

OK, it's official - I've got needlebook anxiety!  I spent the whole night last night dreaming of the needlebook design that I've sketched.  Are my measurements right?  Do I have the right fabric chosen?  Am I sure I want to cut it that way?  hehehehehe -- and it's a simple design, too!!!  geez... 

I've spent all this time in the planning, and today is the day of reckoning.  Today I finally start cutting and sewing and now I'm afraid to because of all my dreams!!   Roll Eyes

Ah well, just gotta DO IT!  I should have it in the mail tomorrow!
