Good Evening Everyone,
Not as much progress as I had hoped for on Dona Dorothea. Poor thing – she has been neglected while I worked some on Mary Hurst. But, I decided the weekend was Dona’s. However, there wasn’t much stitching time over the weekend…only managed to finish up a floral segment. Very pretty, but what a PITA to do – stitch two squares and then change colors…stitch three more squares and then change colors again. I will say, once completed, I am very happy with it. Just time consuming and all that. Here is an overall shot of the sampler as of tonight and a close-up of the floral segment.
And, another shot of Tyg, my stitching companion. I showed one picture on the FB page the other day…here is another shot of our rescue kitty.
After nearly two months off due to some surgery, I am going back to work tomorrow. Not sure I am so ready for this. I told my husband I was looking at this hiatus period as a “test” to see if retirement would work for us. It will!! Woo-Hoo. We love being together and I don’t think either of us made the other one too crazy – lol. But, unfortunately, the timing is not right just yet….
I hope to get back to Mary Hurst this week and will post updates on FB. Not sure when that will be with working again, but hopefully soon.
Now I think it’s time to read a bit and then try to get a good night’s rest. Hope everyone has a wonderful week.
