Ok, so I didn't pick up Not For Us Alone like I said I would. My excuse is that I need to find my Autopsy of the Montenegrin Stitch book by Amy Mitten to help me with the next part. I'm on a Lois Minshall streak instead. Here's my progress as of this morning. It's a sunny day for once!
I'm enjoying this one now that I'm on a roll.
Lois is rather tortuous in that she has all these little over one motifs. I can never make over one on 40ct work -- I can only handle over one letters. Anything else, the fabric just bunches and the stitches don't fit. Soooooo, I'm cheating and just doing over one tent instead. Fits a lot better. Hopefully, it doesn't look too terrible.
The girl child is coming home tonight for midterm break from college. It'll be nice to have her home for a week. Although it always means more work, more surprises, and an extra two kids in the house. Two kids, you say? Yes, her boyfriend is a senior in high school. He's always around when she's around. :D I know one thing for sure. The girl child will be needing lots of sleep. She's been pulling lots of all-nighters this week!
Off to start a stew in the slow cooker. Good way to have some dinner ready for someone whose arrival time is in the air. And with the girl child, you never know her plans until the plans are happening! lol!
