Give Me A "W"

Yup I'm at it again, more monograms! I was asked if I was trying to spell something specific. No, I'm not... nor will I be stitching the whole alphabet. I'm stitching up a bunch of monogram ornaments for Christmas this year! So here's another one. I started it today and finished it today. I haven't put it together yet, I'll whip stitch it together tomorrow but I'll wait until I have several more before I make and put on cord.



Letter "W" - Red Threads
c2002 Rosewood Manor
Stitched on : 28ct Queen Ann's Lace Joblean
Stitched with Carrie's Creations : Raspberry
I'm glad the week is almost over, like I said yesterday its been a rough one for me. I spent most of the day feeling like crap again. This evening, I didn't lie down for a nap but stayed up and started letter W, I made a proper dinner, went to Taekwon-Do (for the 3rd time this week), and finished the letter W. Oddly enough I'm feeling not bad this evening.
Unfortunately I've got a busy weekend ahead, so there won't be lots of sleeping in (or stitching)... though I wish I could! Saturday morning I'll be back at Taekwon-Do, I've been asked to go in for the 10am class to review my pattern. The starting at 12:30 there's testing. I'm not testing for my 3rd degree, but its an interim test leading to my next promotion. So its going to be a long day as there will be colour belt testing going on as well and usually us black belts get to wait until the end. Sunday I have most of the day to myself, but then that evening Todd's sister and I will be going out for dinner, and to see The Tragically Hip at the NAC that night. Sounds like we have great seats too!
