A Late Post

I bet you were all looking for my latest Tour update on Monday morning? Sorry I didn't update on Sunday night, I felt like I hadn't really gotten in enough progress to warrant showing off.



I didn't get in much stitching on Saturday, I met with Lori and her daughter. We got along right away, and spent wayyy more time talking than stitching. I think our visit lasted about 5 hours! I'm looking forward to stitching with Lori again.

Sunday was as many of you know, Superbowl Sunday. Since I spent Saturday visiting, I had to get up and start cleaning my house, Todd's family was coming over for my Kick Ass Lasagna and the Superbowl (I'd like to think my lasagna is more important!). So many hours were dedicated to domestic goddess duties, darn it should of been stitching!

Well, my insane habit of keeping busy and running around all the time has finally caught up with me! I've got a cold! Not one of those knock you on your behind and into bed colds but more like one of the walking wounded. I've been going around sniffling and sneezing for the last two days. Having a bit of a off-routine weekend, not working out since Thursday, and coming down with this cold has shown up at the scale. The two pounds I took off last week are back! Urgh! I'll be avoiding the gym and Taekwon-Do until I feel well, I don't need this to be a long lingering cold.

Here are some of the pictures I've collected in the last few days


Saturday February 6 -Close up of a fern. Just looking for something to shoot without going outside.


Sunday February 7 - Is that a tear in your eye? Nope, just the onion! Getting ready to chop up an onion for my kick ass lasagna.

Monday February 8 - I drive by this roll of wire fence every day. Finally I stopped to take a picture of it, I wish I had my DSLR it would of been a better picture.


Tuesday February 9 - This is another thing I drive by every day! The first time I noticed this little guy was in the pre-dawn winter light, I thought oh my goodness! A woodpecker, how cool. The the next morning he was there again. What strange behaviour. Then I finally saw it in full light... fooled me!

Tour really is a stunner. Great pics again too. Love the fencing one - sort of sums up this winter. :0)
Hope you feel much better soon... & don't worry about those lbs, it happens, & you got them off once so you'll do it again. :0)

Karen said...

Great pics, Dani. Neat woodpecker! And Tour is just...wow.

Jules said...

Wow! Tour is looking great! I love it more and more each time you share your progress. I think I may have to find a castle design on my upcoming shopping spree.

I love the pictures you posted. Since I bought my DSLR, I tend not to carry it with me all the time, so when the opportunity arises, I find myself without a camera more often than not. I may have to remedy that! Love the fern and the wire roll the best. The shadow play is great!!

Gabi said...

Great progress. It's looking really lovely.
Love your pictures too.

mbroider said...

Another question on Tour, Dani. I would like to know how many stiches per page pls??

Hope you get well soon!

Lucy said...

Lynn said...

Hope we get to meet Lori soon at one of our SAL. Don't forget I'll have some time off work soon.
Tour keeps looking better all the time! Hope your cold makes a quick exit.
