A Finish and WIP's Update

I'm still not feeling up to par and will probably have to make an appointment to see the doctor soon. Even with feeling like crap (sorry about the language) I have done some stitching.

"Snowman Trio - Chilly" finished

"Snowman Trio - Willy"

I had originally planned putting my grandchildren's names on these but when I charted them out they just wouldn't fit and look right so that plan was scrapped. Then I thought I'd do 3 Flat folds with them and then decided I didn't want to do that either. Now I'm going to stitch all 3 on one piece of fabric and either do 1 large flat fold or a large no sew cube with them. I really believe I have become obsessed with this project since I can't put it away and work on anything else. I have more done on "Willy" since this scan and he is a real cutie but you'll have to take my word for it until I scan him again.


"Naughty" by Mill Hill

I also started "Naughty" for myself to go with "Nice" that I did for Tracy. It's almost 1/2 finished and I should get back to it real soon (If the snowmen will shut up and let me work on something else).
I should have one more day of quiet stitching then the week gets busy. Wednesday I'm meeting with Nancy at Stitcher's Paradise for a afternoon of stitching with the ladies there. I will be a good girl and leave my wallet at home except for the few $'s I need for lunch and to get the buttons for the "Snowman Trio". Thursday is our 31st Wedding Anniversary, boy time flies when you are having fun with your best friend. Not sure what we will do to celebrate and a lot depends on how I feel that day. Friday is going to be a long day out, Tracy has two doctors check-up's. One in the morning and one in the afternoon so we'll have to find something to do between the two appointments since it's really not time to come home between them. May just have to do some window shopping or find a nice quiet place where I can sit and stitch and he can read the paper.
I'll probably be kinda quiet the rest of the week. I've just started hosting a new exchange on my ILCS group and have become overwhelmed with the response so my attention will be on keeping that straight and stitching.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching and have a great week
