... I call in an emergency stitcher! Yes, that is my sweet husband, Chris, putting two extra "sacrifice" rows around my napkin rings! It's Sunday night and the October 1st deadline for Christmas finishing is just 6 days away. That's approximately 144 hours away and I do have to sleep/work/attend to my family for some of those hours. The deadline is the same date every year...why do we stitchers put ourselves in the position of pulling "Needlepoint All Nighters"??? Thanks, honey, for helping out. Why is Buster just lying there? Can't he do a few extra rows on my Whimsy and Grace Napoleonic bee napkin rings??? Sheesh. PS You have until October 31st for full-sized Christmas stockings and belts with traditional leather... Happy (frantic) stitching, Susan
