Sunday Update


I started working on the embroidery part of this "Truly Scrumptious" block of the month probably 2 summers ago. I was doing quite well on finishing them but for some reason everything came to a screeching halt, and all I had to finish was a tiny bit of embroidery on the last block.....I finally decided that enough was enough on the procrastinating, just git er done! So, I pulled out the block that needed the embroidery, finished it up and then put the border around the block. Why I procrastinate sometimes just blows my mind. So, now the rows are connected and ready for a border....I'm just not sure what type I want to put on it.
On another note, has anyone seen "Time Travelers Wife"?
I actually started to read the book but found it to be a little confusing so I stopped and figured I'd just see the movie when it comes out. Last night after sewing for a while I popped it in the DVR and sat back to watch. I was just as confused with the movie as I was with the book. Too much jumping around for me. Anyone else feel that way?

Your Truly Scrumptious blocks look great! I'm glad you finished the last one up! :0)

I started reading The Time Traveler's Wife too and then stopped. Now I'm half afraid to bother seeing the movie if it's confusing too. And the previews looked so good too! :0/

You know how I love those Truly Scrumptious girls....now get the border on, pronto!

I wasn't thrilled with the movie at all, but my 16 year old daughter LOVES it!!!

Your stitchery looks wonderful. I heard from several that The Time Traveler's Wife was confusing, so I never attempted it...either in book form or the movie.

Your blocks are fantastic! They really came out adorable.

I listened to The Time Travelers Wife on audio. I had to rewind in a couple of places, it was confusing.

I wanted to see the Time Travelers Wife. The previews looked so interesting. hmmm maybe not the best thought :( I stopped watching the show LOST 'cause I got "lost".

Peggy, I LOVE the colors in your fabrics. They just surround the embroidered blocks so nicely. Great job on getting this ufo to the next stage.
