SAL Complete

I finished the SAL that I had started with my DSIL. I really love this piece and cannot wait to make him into a little flat fold. I've got some fabbie with little peppermints all over it that I think will work great for the backing. I haven't put them next to each other yet, but in my mind's eye I think it will work. I still need a little peppermint button to put in the middle of one of the presents too.


I went ahead and started quietness and confidence last week. I haven't made a ton of progress yet, because I've been rather worn after coming home from work. I forgot how stressful starting a new job can be and how exhausting it is to have everything thrown at you at once. That being said, work is going as well as can be expected. I'm dying to start doing a little bit of "doing". At this point, I'm in a lot of design meetings. It's good so I can learn their business, but it doesn't make me feel like I've accomplished a whole lot. This phase should be completed by the end of the month, then it will be on to the real work! I sure hate that I started this just when the weather is starting to turn nice. I really like being outside when it is warm and the birdies are tweeting.

Enjoy your week,

Congrats on the finish, it looks so cute. I'll bet it will be wonderful with the peppermint fabric for backing. I've gotten some more done on Woof, but not a whole lot. About a third of the bowl is done now, and I have his head (excluding the ears) finished. So.. getting there, just not as quick as I'd planned. Oh well, at least with it being a Christmas piece there is plenty of time to finish it up before then. :)

Cute piece. Making it into a flat fold sounds like a great idea.
