Ahhhh, so nice to have a long holiday weekend to relax! As you can see, Eric and I went out to see the fireworks on the 4th. You can see more about our weekend here, if you’re interested. And other than going out to see the fireworks, we really had nothing else planned. We decided to stay in out of the heat and catch up on some movie watching.
Of course, I decided to catch up on some stitching too. Friday night while we finished watching Season 2 of True Blood, I stitched on Margaret Pence. Then I ripped out everything I’d just stitched and stitched it again in the right spot. So, not a whole lot of progress to show.
The rest of the weekend, I decided to choose a focus project since I knew I was going to be investing a good amount of time in stitch ass. In honor of the 4th, I chose (with some help) to stitch on the outside of my Catherine Theron Americana Sewing Roll. The last time you saw it was after our class at Seminar… here. And after seeing the state of Sylvia’s, I decided I’d better get on it!
Even after having to rip out two whole rows last night and restitch them, I think I made excellent progress (apparently I cannot watch Angelina Jolie shooting guns and concentrate on my stitching). After I finish the row I’m on, I only have four more to go. Then I can start the fill in.
Of course, Eric kept looking at what I was working on and could not figure out what in the world I was stitching. I showed him the photo of what it will look like and he was still not convinced that it would all come together. He said it looked like the game Asteroids. Neon green Asteroids specifically. I wonder if maybe he was thinking of Galaga? It does bear some resemblence…
So, fireworks, seven movies plus a Star Wars marathon, some excellent food and neon green asteroids…a wonderful weekend!
Oh, and I’ve recently finished reading my first book of the Summer, if you’d like to see my post on it you can see it here.
I am grateful for a fantastic weekend at home with my husband. And yummy food too!
