Hello, all! I am slowly but surely getting past all the allergy nastiness that has been keeping me feeling not so good. And of course, good mail always helps! I went ahead and ordered the Songbird Pullware for Lady Scarlet’s Journey, even though I am not even finished with Barnabee. Since Jenna and I have plans to stitch this one next, I figured there was no time like the present to make sure I got the pullware. It arrived and it is so pretty! Now, I will just have to figure out how to finish my pieces into a bellpull once I get them stitched!
I have been stitching solely on the last Just Nan RR I have to stitch on. Arthemise has chosen to do a bellpull of the Just Nan Twelve Days of Christmas for her RR. I am stitching on Day 10 – Ten Lords Leaping. I just love the colors in this, and I have been looking forward to stitching on this one since the RR started. I think I may have to invest in this chart, even though I have Teresa Wentzler’s 12 Days ornaments on the go. I should be able to get this finished up in the next couple of nights. There are still several blank spots on this though, so I may ask her if she wants me to go ahead and stitch a second one, or if she wants it to come on home. I was kinda torn between 8 Maids Milking and 10 Lords Leaping.
And speaking of the Just Nan RR, I so appreciate all of your wonderful comments and compliments on it. I have asked Carol and Jenna to stitch in my last two spots, as they were my two initiators on the Barnabee Quest SAL. I am so excited to send it to them! I will probably go ahead and order that snowflake charm for the Frost Flower square while my RR is traveling again.
Walk to Rivendell: Camp – Woody End. A green floor in the wood, roofed by boughs of trees. To the east a steep shoulder falls, and they can overlook the river valley. The lights of the village of Woodhall seen below (ca. 11 p.m.). Sleep late (leaving time ca. 11:00 a.m.). Frodo decides to cut SE to Buckleberry Ferry. Scramble down hill into the thick trees below. It begins to cloud up. A deep-banked stream below the hill cuts across their path. Looking back, they see a Black Rider on the hillcrest where they had camped. They force through the bushes alongside the stream. (Total Miles Walked: 47) [That’s a lot to happen in only a mile and a half!!!]
I am grateful for having lost 31.2 pounds!!!
