Inspire - Motivate - Enable

Are you inspired, motivated and enabled by your stitching friends?? Dang...me too! I was checking out the blog world and Alison had posted progress pics of her Finch Song from the Shepherd Bush retreat last fall. It was stunning...why didn't I stitch mine...where did I have it stashed anyway??? Found it and I'm half done. Isn't it beautiful?? Of course (not to enable anyone) it is now available for purchase from the Bush girls. So Sad..Too Bad I didn't have it already stitched and framed to win my imaginary 'Be The First to Stitch It' contest!!!


Now --- off to find and purchase the "Plantation Sampler" pattern....and thank you very much Margaret!!

Oh isn't it just too true? lol! You're welcome on the Plantation Sampler. :D And the Finch's Song -- I'm planning to order it in my birthday order next month -- can't wait!!! So yes, you and Allison have enabled me on that one -- although I knew I wanted it as soon as I saw pictures from the retreat. I'm still jealous about that!

Your stitching is wonderful Cari. You've convinced me that I need to get this kit. I'm stitching Queen Bee right now (and lovin' it). They are always a fun stitch! And yoo hoo on the Plantation Sampler. Are you going to stitch it soon. My fabric finally came a couple days ago and I want to put some stitches into it this weekend!

Okay...I get on my blog and see that you have an update....I say to myself..."crap..she's been stitching again!" (I admit...I didn't use the word crap.) hehehe I can't keep up with you! You are a terribly successful enabler! It is a beautiful piece! You and Margaret...tisk, tisk!

Alison said...

You've done so much! Mine was right about at the same place when I got it out & decided to finish it. Well, I'm real close now but not really motivated. Isn't that how it always goes? LOL.

Wow, it looks great, Cari! You must have smoke coming from your needles, you got it done so quickly! I love it!

Cari, the piece is absolutely beautiful. I'm enabled, and my hubby thanks you for all the money I will be spending.... LOL
You did a simply FABULOUS job.
