Countdown to 2008 ....

I am so lucky today. Found the perfect calendar for my laundry room:I saw this on the V&A web site & was thrilled to find one at Barnes and Noble [earlier today]

Each year, the boyz and I go over to Barnes and Noble to select a 2008 wall calendar. This year, we picked Tiffany for the Kitchen:

I was stash diving, looking for some linen. I'm thinking I don't have a good enough cut for the Happy Hearts Sampler by BOAF. This was going to be a fun SAL with (so far) Chelle and Cathy B. Perhaps I'll find something in the next day or two ... or will have to purchase some!!!! I really thought the 32-count lambswool linen would be ok -- but, honestly, it dulls out the overdye fibers. I'll have to get some 32-ct sand or something to compliment the fibers : ) The pattern calls for 36-count linen; however, no can do!!! So, ladies, go ahead and start without me. I'm sure I'll catch up the first or second week in January : )

Wishing everybody who stops by my blog a Happy New Year!!!!

Oh, I would love to try and stitch BOAF "Happy Hearts," too. Do you have room for one more in the SAL, assuming I can find some stitching time in the New Year?

Cute calenders! I hope you have a very Happy New Year!

Really great calenders! I haven't been out shopping all week, but will have to make a Costco run this afternoon, hopefully before the rain comes. :)

What gorgeous calendars. Good luck with getting your fabric. I love the look of the higher counts as well, but like you 32 is pretty much my max for being workable.

I have my pattern and linen for Happy Hearts - I haven't pulled the threads yet though. I'm hoping to get it started on new Year's Day....
