I finished stitching Michelle’s RR last night. This is the last Just Nan RR I had to stitch on…so the RR is now complete! I looked forward to stitching on Michelle’s the whole time we’ve been doing the RR. It just looked so colorful and fun. I stitched Days 1 and 10. Above you can see Day 1, which I finished last night. And even though I know partridges do not have purple tails, and even though Michelle very thoughtfully wrote the correction next to that block, I still stitched it as charted – purple tail and all. I decided to check the Just Nan website to check the photo, and that’s when I realized there was an error in the chart…I just didn’t register it when I saw Michelle’s note. So, the purple came out, and now the partridge is appropriately colored.
Here’s Day 10 again, just so you can see this all together.
And here is the whole piece. Michelle is going to be finishing this into a bellpull, and as you can see she had us stitch Just Nan’s Twelve Days of Christmas WhimZis. So cute!!!
And, since I finished that up in record time last night, I stitched a little bit on my Mystery Sampler. Here’s how it’s looking.
I just love the colors on this and it is such a joy to stitch on everytime I pick it up. I’m stitching with Vikki Clayton threads on Silkweaver’s SandCastle – 32ct, I think.
I haven’t been sleeping well lately, and it may have to do with everything going on – just general busy-ness. We’ve been invited to another wedding in New York, two weeks before the Philadelphia wedding. So, we’re pricing flights to see if it’s reasonable to go. My great aunt is coming into town – well to Austin – this weekend, so we may be driving down to Austin at the last minute to visit with her either this weekend or next weekend. My neice has her very first loose tooth – so that is big news in our world right now. And Eric started back to school yesterday – he is almost finished with his second Masters degree, and only has a couple of classes left. With his illness last year and our wedding, these had to be postponed – but I am so glad he will be finished with them soon! We’re also altering my workouts again, to add in some more strength-training, and changing my walks as well. So tonight will be the first of the new workouts – wish me luck!
I am grateful for participating in and finishing an amazing Round Robin and all the wonderful stitchers I met doing it. My very first RR!
