Now for the photos. Trecie sent me the cutest ever tissue case, a mitten pattern and a card that made me cry. Trecie, you are one the most talented, kindest people. There is a special place in heaven for people like you who know just the right time and words to help someone in need. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. (PS. Rosie sends purrs and chirps to her furry fan club. LOL) Early in the week I finished one of my older WIPs. This is one I started last summer. I love the saying and the colors. I need to get to Joanns for fabric because I think this one will be perfect as a flat fold.
Thursday night was the sit and stitch at my not-so-local LNS. (It's a 45 minute drive but well worth it!) I had planned on working on the LHN Coming to America since it is soooooooo close to being finished. Well, I reach in my bag and find I left the pattern home! Sigh. Thank goodness I had a back up. Which I finished!
And since that one finished quickly I also had time to start My Needle, my Floss. Here is my progress after working on it Friday and Saturday. There would have been even more progress except for a while it was a bit chilly in my house. Thursday night I get home to find I had no heat! I had run out of oil. (The oil company seems to let this happen at least twice every winter.) I waited until well after midnight Thursday for the oil service to call. They never did so I bundled under a couple of extra blankets and another comforter. And since it is deadline time for me at work I couldn't stay home. I did get home early Friday to find that they did deliver oil. I called the service people to come turn the furnace back on. Finally. HEAT. All I can say is thank goodness, it wasn't freezing. But it is hard to stitch when your hands are that cold.
Okay, time for my WIP's photos. Above you can see Coming to America is almost finished. I hope I get it done this week. My Needle, My Floss is moving along. This is a really quick stitch. And The Traveling Stitcher has been a joy. I should have a couple more finishes and starts by next week. Well, I hope so.
The weekend itself was busy, busy, busy. The weather was perfect for working outside which is what I did. Of course my muscle are letting me know about the work I did. You can barely see the progress so no photo. maybe next week. 20 bags of leaves and debris barely touch the surface. Guess what I'll be doing every weekend? It's what I call my "down to earth therapy."
I hope everyone has a great week with more finishes every where. Until next time...........
Love and stitches
