Another UFO Becomes A WIP

Hello and happy Saturday, Peeps!
And a happy Saint Patrick's Day as well.
 
I woke up earlier than usual this morning and I've been sitting with my coffee and doing some reading in a novel that I began last night.  I needed a break so I'm taking a pause to post as it's been two weeks.
 
As I promised myself, I'm pursuing my UFO list and have pulled Gail Pan's free BOM blocks out to work on until completion.  They are such pretty designs and I don't remember what side-tracked me at the time.  I had them tucked away to finish later and I suppose later has arrived.  I do love embroidery but when there are French knots to be made I do give my poor arthritic hand & finger joints a bit of a workout.
 
 
John and I have been kind of busy doing some projects around the house and we also made a short out-of-town trip last week to take care of some business.  He also offered weeks and weeks ago to take me shopping to replace a chair and I finally was ready to do so yesterday.  I have a nice chair in the family room but this is for the other room which is where I prefer to read or watch TV if John is watching basketball in the family room.
 
 So off we went to the furniture store to check out the chairs and I chose this one.
 
Do you remember the story of The Three Bears and Baby Bear wanted a chair that was "just right?"  This one was it.  I could have ordered one in neutral colors but I liked this one.  (It appears slightly purple in the photo but actually it's a burgundy and tan tweed.)   I suppose it just spoke to me.  The store helpers loaded it into John's truck and we headed for home.  I thought it looked just fine with this small homespun quilt on the back which I will use as a throw if I get cold.  Not that that's likely to happen.
 
Besides stitching on the above project, I am using some inspiration pictures on Pinterest to design a quilt that I have swirling in my mind.  It will incorporate pieced blocks, accented with some embroidery.  That's all I will share until I have something more specific to show you.  I can picture something in my mind but drafting it onto paper is going to take some time and effort.
 
I'm so glad you decided to visit me.
Please come again!
