I apologize that my blogging has been rather sporadic of late, particularly on the weekends. It seems that I tend to forget I need to sit down and catch my breath a moment. I had kind of a hard day yesterday, maybe just a case of the blahs. I did not want to do anything at all. I started to get out my sewing machine and work on my finishing I needed to do, but the thought of dragging out the machine and having to clean off my table was too much. So, I stitched instead and Eric and I watched A Gentleman’s Agreement, which was next up on our Academy Award list. Excellent movie…I was very impressed. Next up is 1948’s Hamlet. Eric brought home the loveliest roses for me yesterday also…I guess he knew I needed it! It was a gorgeous bouquet of pinks, light pinks, yellow and whites. So pretty. That’s one of them in the photo.
As I said, I ended up stitching yesterday instead of sewing, so I made good progress on Mystery 9. I had hoped to finish up part 6 last night, but I didn’t quite make it. All I have left though are the specialty stitches. So, I should be able to finish up this part quickly next weekend. I am glad that I am finally making some progress on this piece. I think so far my rotation is working out well. It is allowing me to make progress on several things, but not get burned out on any one thing. I think I got really burned out on Mystery 9, which is part of the reason I put it down previously. But, I think I’ve got my groove back. Here’s where I left it last night.
I am also making really good progress on my Lemon Meringue Sampler. I finished up the pie slice on Friday evening. I just have two bands underneath it to stitch, and then beads! I should be able to finish this one up pretty quick. Then, on to the next thing! I have a couple of projects all lined up a ready to go as I finish things off. (Who doesn’t!!??)
My fabric finally arrived for Barnabee’s Quest. So, I am all set to begin the SAL on Thursday! Hope everyone had a great weekend! And thanks to all of those who are new commenters – I appreciate hearing from you!
