Well, last night around 9:30PM I got the finishing bug! So I went with it and pulled out Sweetheart Tree's "Don't But Me (while I'm stitching)" to finally turn into something I can hang on the wall in my stitching area. I'm very pleased with it. I thought the stretching might be tricky since the piece is on linen. However, I must be getting good at lacing/stretching because with some minor adjustments it looked perfect! I guess my tip to you, if you're getting frustrated with stretching is just keep doing it, it does get easier!
I stayed home sick yesterday, with the cold I told you about earlier in the week. During my waking hours (when I wasn't sleeping!) I started the Prarie Schooler ornament from the JCS 06 Ornament Issue. This is my choice for an Ornament RR so I figured get it stitched up instead of procrastinating. I didn't finish it yesterday but I did make descent progress.
Its Saturday now since it was pretty late when I finished my finishing, that's why I didn't post it last night. I'm getting ready to head out of the house (sitting here eating a quick breakfast) to teach three classes at TKD. Then my Mum and I will be picking up my niece, Emma and taking her out for lunch (she's turning 6 on the 11th) and to Build-A-Bear for an early b-day gift. I've had a cold all week and ended up taking off a couple of days from work. I'm feeling better this morning, but I hope I have the energy to do all of this!
