Last week, I started a Monday SAL with Kwilty Kim of Threadheads Unite and Mark Lipinski's ATS SAL group. I decided to stick to just Mondays, although that may bleed a bit into Sundays depending on my mood and the state of my Richmond Sampler. Here is what I accomplished last Monday on ATS.
I've wanted to stitch this piece forever, so I figured this was my opportunity to get going. Of course, there have been other SALs as well -- not sure why I picked this time to start, but there you go! I'm using the called for GAST fibers and 40ct Pearled Barley.
The Richmond Sampler has been going as well. The straight/zig zag border is all finished -- queen stitches and all -- but I won't bother showing you all of its glory. I'll just show the interesting parts.
(Got the last picture right before the Mia came attacking. ) I'm enjoying this piece, although I am getting tired of the baskets and flowers. I could attack the over one verse, of course. I guess I should do that. Ugh.
Mia is growing all the time. I still remember when she couldn't look out the front door. Now she can and does most every time the boy child heads off to the bus stop. Here's what she looks like in action. You can see the boy child's hand in the first picture, although it's hard to tell.
She was looking out the door at the boy child again this morning. Looking at these pictures, I think she's grown a tad more since last week!
Mia has been getting into lots of trouble the past couple of days. All of a sudden she's been getting into places she's never explored before. Yesterday she dumped a glass of water all over my bed. She later dumped the empty glass on the floor again. Amazingly the glass wasn't broken. I need to find my reusable water bottles and start using them.
This morning she kept insisting on climbing into the lampshade of the livingroom lamp -- a lamp that cannot be replaced and is very breakable. Argh!!! I took her out of it three times. The third time I gave up and shut her up in the back part of the house for a while, where her litter box and food are. (It's lucky that our house has a door between parts of the house like that!) She eventually started meowing to come to where we were, then I heard a crash. Sigh.
When I went to investigate, I found that Mia had managed to overturn the laundry basket on herself. She's done this once before. The last time she did it, she was so small she couldn't move the basket or get out from under it. This time she was walking around, pushing the laundry basket (still overturned) with her nose so that she could walk around. Silly kitten! I think she liked doing it until she discovered she couldn't get to her food from inside the basket. lol! I took the basket away then. We've been at a truce ever since. I think she knew she'd been in trouble and should be good. Such a mischief maker!
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi! I so enjoy our visits! Have a great week!
