I know that it was all due to unforeseen circumstances and I shouldn't feel badly about any of it. But I must say I do feel a little guilty that I get to stay home and stitch all weekend, in the comfort of my own home, while he has to attend all the family stuff associated with a wedding all by himself. Oh well, such is life!!
Since I was spending so much time doing other things, my stitching time was greatly curtailed. People who know me will be shocked by this but there were several evenings since my last post that I didn't stitch at all!! Oh the horrors!!! I did manage to get some time in on a few things though.
Sunday we had Sandra Sullivan come to teach at our sampler guild. If you remember from my last post, there was some pre-stitching that had to be done since it was a finishing class. This is the stitched piece.
And this is what it looked like after the finishing magic was worked on it. So Cute!!
The little spools are supposed to be wrapped with floss in the same colors as the stitching. Needless to say, I haven't done that yet and 10 years from now you will probably still find them unwrapped!!
At this point, I must confess that this had nothing to do with me. As you are all well aware, I am finishing challenged and left to my own devices it would probably look like a one-handed monkey did it!! My good friend Tricia took pity on me, working mine and hers at the same time, and I am now graced with this lovely pincushion!! First class I've ever left with a finished product. Thanks so much Tricia!
Also during this past week, I managed to get the large alphabet finished on the Blackbird SAL.
I am going to try to finish this one up during my 'retreat' this weekend. It is such a small piece and should not still be hanging out in my 'In' basket!!
I spend most of my stitching time working on One Nation. I got the stripe in per my rotation assignment and then just kept going. I thought about working it until its finished but on second thought, I think I will just try to stay on top of it so it will be finished on schedule.
So that's all that's going on for now. It is IH&SW this weekend ( how fortuitous is that??) and I have some lost stitching time to make up for. I took care of the rest of my errands today so I should be able to spend the rest of the weekend blissfully stitching in my little corner and catching up some viewing on my DVR! Heaven!! I should have lots to show next week!
Hope you are all enjoying your stitching as much as I am, Laura
