A Finish, A WIP and A Start

A Finish....... I was in a stitching slump due to a problem with my eye. What better cure than a quick to finish project. I love stitching the monochromic designs with over dyed threads and love the way this one turned out. It's from the "Simply Red Ornament" by Diane Arthurs of Imaginating, Inc. This is the first of the 5 designs and I think I'll do the others in different colors.

A WIP.....
The trees are planted and the fences built. Making slow progress on this one. I may get more done on it this week (going to be a busy week but more about that later)


Today was the start of the L&L SAL in my ILCS group. I have had Celtic Spring in my stash for a while and just hadn't gotten around to starting it. I'm stitching her on 28 count Willow Green Cashel with DMC. So far so good. I managed to get a lot done today.
I still have to get some stitching done for a Birthday gift so I better get on it now. Can't be late with a birthday gift.
Next week will be a busy one for us. DH Tracy is having a colonoscopy (spelling) on Thursday morning. We have to be at the hospital at 6:30am and I have no idea how long we will be there. I'll be taking some stitching with me and hopefully will get some done. Friday is going to be a "ME" day. Tracy said after all the doctors appointments I've gone with him and the ones coming up I deserve some fun. We will start with going to breakfast and then some S.E.X. (hehehe the shopping kind). I need some floss so we'll go to JoAnn's, then to the LNS for Q-Snaps and whatever else jumps in my hand, Michaels will be next for a look see what they have I just must have and probably dinner after that. I'm sure I'll be exhausted after that and Tracy will have a serious hole in his pocket.
Until next time.....Happy Stitching
