It’s been another busy weekend around here. Hope you’ve all had a great one. I did the beading on Cathy’s RR to finish it up. Cathy had us stitching ornaments for her. I chose to stitch the Sugarplum Violets ornament. My grandmother used to grow African violets, so this one just called to me. And I love the purples. This is the next to the last round on my Just Nan RR. I can’t believe we are already about to send out the last round. This has gone really fast!
Here you can see all the ornaments that have been stitched for Cathy so far.
I stitched on Barnabee on Friday night while watching Eragon. It was pretty good – but not nearly as good as the book. I’ll be looking forward to reading Eldest once I am finished with my Harry Potter books. I finished up the borders for Part 2 and then made a little start on the first couple of bands and the birdhouse.
I am working on the finishing for my biscornu. I am doing the backstitching so that I can then sew it closed. It should be done soon. My goal for this weekend was to get both my RR piece finished and my exchange piece finished. Eric surprised me last week and let me know that he is taking me to San Antonio for our first anniversary next weekend. He apparently has had this up his sleeve for awhile. So, since I won’t be stitching next weekend, I’m glad I was able to finish up what needs to be mailed out next Monday. So, that’s the plan for tonight – maybe a movie, and a little stitching. And last, but not least, thanks to all of you who sent Eric well-wishes for his surgery. He is doing great and has not had to take any pain pills. He should be completely healed soon, which is good since the incision is on his back and not entirely comfortable. But, he is doing great!
I am grateful for my life and the people in it.
