Well, for now I've conquered the startitis that I've been having. I've decided to do a very loose rotation of Ruthie Sundays, and then rotate every week between Not For Us Alone and Lois Minshall. I think. I may throw in a Collaboration Etui Wednesday in there with another online friend. :D
In the meantime, I did manage to finish Chapter Two of Not for Us Alone on Monday.
Don't look too closely at the seed stitch around the shield motif. I messed up a bit. For those of you who think I'm a perfectionist, think again. At least when it comes to ripping out seed stitch. lol!
After I finished that up, I needed some plain cross stitch, so I was good and picked up Lois Minshall again. Here's where I am with her as of today.
(It's another cloudy day today, so the pictures may be a bit dark.) I don't know if I said before, but I'm using 40ct Vintage Light Examplar and an NPI conversion from Jean at the Attic. (No affiliation, etc) With Not for Us Alone, I'm using the kit -- 36ct Zweigart and Amy Mitten's Fibers to Dye For fibers.
I'm glad today's Friday, but totally bummed that we have to turn the clocks ahead this weekend. I think they did the right thing in changing when to turn the clocks back in the fall, but they moved the moving-the-clocks-forward thing to a time of year that's a bit too early IMO. I'm liking how it is right now, sending the boy child out to the bus stop when it's light out as opposed to pitch dark or just starting to get light. Next week it'll be back to sending him out when it's just getting light again. And waking up in the dark. Bleagh!! The only good thing will be not having to drive in the dark to and from evening activities. Anyone who knows me knows I hate driving in the dark!
Well, TGIF anyway! Have a good weekend, everyone! And thanks for following my blog and posting comments!
