The Weekend

I hope yours was better than mine.

DH is sick.  Just went to the doctor this AM and he has bronchitis.  You know how it is when a DH is sick...

I have been so encouraged by my progress on the gift I'm stitching.  I can see myself getting it done in a month or so.  Anyway, I was stitching away when I realized the border was off.  It has two borders:  the first is a repeating type border and then another border of purples with corner designs.  I'm working on the repeating border now.  But yes, I had to frog what I did this weekend.

I'm a little discouraged and may just pick up on the Coffin Buzz for awhile.  I feel like I'm behind on that anyway.  I haven't finished anything for the challenge.

Totally Spoiled!

After a long Christmas break from work, and then a break from work due to snow, and yesterday being a holiday....I am back and wishing I could be home stitching!  I got so spoiled being at home being able to stitch for long periods of time, I am having withdrawals today!  I did get a lot done on my friend's piece.  I also ran out of the yellow I need so I hope to get that tonight after work.  I really hope everyone else is getting to stitch today!

I'm back!

I know you probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth, but I didn't.  I had a wonderful Christmas break and New Year!  We even had snow on Christmas Day.  But then I went back to work and paid for having such a long break. 

I finished stitching Ho Ho Ho the day before Christmas.  I still haven't made it into an ornament yet.  I was so excited to have such extended stitching time, I just kept on stitching.  Here is a picture of Ho Ho Ho.

After I finished that, I worked exclusively on the project for my friend.  I made a lot of progress.  And for the first time in a long time, I really think I can finish this project.  There for awhile I thought it would never happen.  No picture of that - I don't want her to see it.

Also I have an update on my December totals:

I stitched 22 days in December for a total of 28 hours and 15 minutes.

Since New Year's I have continued to work on the gift for my friend, which is part of my  Flip'n Crazy January Challenge, but since I can't show that one until I'm done...I also wanted to show you what is next up on the Challenge.  It's Coffin Buzz from Plum Street Samplers.  Here is a picture of where I left off the last time I worked on it.  Stay tuned for an update.
