Ever have one of those weeks where you think it’s all going just dandy and then it all hits the fan from out of nowhere? Yeah, that’s where we’re at. Downhill descent started last Thursday at work and made impact today (again at work) with a whole lot of nonsense in between. I’d thought yesterday was the point of impact, but I was wrong. Awesome.
So, let’s talk stitching, shall we? As you can see from my progress above on Margaret Pence, I was able to sit down and put more than five stitches in at a time. In fact, I made so much progress on this Friday night and Saturday that I hated to put it down. You can see my last progress photo in the post below. A lot a lot, huh? I need to finish my birds and put some little doodads on the fruit, but then that tree is done and I will move over to the other tree.
Like I said, I was on such a roll with Margaret Pence, that I hated to set her aside, but I decided to get out And They Sinned on Sunday. I think I mentioned that the last time I worked on this I finished up the left hand side of the cloud. So, yesterday I started in on the right side. I’ve got a little mistake that I’m trying to allow for in my cloud, and hopefully it will all come out right. But, that’s why I started tent stitching my outline, so that I could make sure everything was lining up correctly. I think I made good progress on this yesterday too and hated to put it away last night.
So, anyway… I made good progress on two pieces this weekend and enjoyed them both. I finally felt like I was able to stitch, which was a good thing. Regardless of the fact that all manner of shenanigans were going on, I had a pretty good weekend. And please just use your imagination on making these photos the correct color – I cannot take or edit photos early in the morning to save my life.
Ok, that’s it for me today. I may work on Margaret P a little more this evening if I don’t decide to hole up with the 700 page book I need to have read by Friday. Did I mention I’m on like page 50?
I am grateful for some great advice.
