Stitching By Myself

Friday after work I was supposed to pop down to Rebecca's place in my car to visit and stitch with her this weekend.  Unfortunately my car was making a rather unfriendly noise and Todd felt it wasn't best for me to make the 2 hour drive.  We think the bearing on the driver's side needs replacing, the car is going into the shop on Tuesday.  So I've been stitching by myself today.

Here's where Celestial Dragon was as of Friday night, I'll update you with my weekend progress Sunday night.

I did finish the bottom right corner during the week here's a close-up

Since I was home for the weekend Todd and I went to discover another trail, this time to the Malborough Forest.  The hour we spent hiking in there, I didn't come across anything scenic.  But I did come across an old rusted vehicle I thought was interesting.

The coolest thing,  was despite all the rust the handle for the trunk was still nice n' shiny!  Todd says it is made of real chrome.

Great progress on your dragon. The shading on the interlacing makes it look as if it really is weaving in and out

Your Celestial Dragon WIP is wonderful - all that back-stitching must take ages!

Lovely progress on your WIP. Sorry to hear about your car woes--I hope it won't be too pricey to get it fixed!

Don't you feel lost when you don't have your wheels?
I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on CD. I'll be stitching along with you. I'm by myself all weekend and have lots of stitching time.

Nice progress on your WIP, hope your car can be fixed and it doesn't cost you lots.

Darn cars...always changing our plans in one way or another. Looks like you got a nice hike in with Todd though. I love that car and it's shiny handle.

Hope the car isn't a big problem. Bugger about missing stitching with your friend. :-(

But, looks like you are making great progress.

wow! Your dragon is really lovely. I love the colours!

Great progress! My niece is into the Chinese sign for "Peace" and I have been debating stitching one up for her.

Isn't it great finding old treasures while hiking/walking through woods? Love the pictures of that car and handle!!

Hi Dani,

So sorry to hear about your car
woes which forced you to miss the
gathering at Rebecca's this week-
end. Hope the problem isn't too
serious or expensive to fix.

Your Celestial Dragon is looking
great so far. The blue symbols
really pop against the golds of
the border.

Sorry to hear you've been sick
as well. There's something
going through my department at
work too, and I might have had
a bit of it last weekend
although it didn't actually
develop into anything in the
long run. I just felt punky and
my voice was "rough" when I
talked. I took that weekend off
as well and didn't do any kind
of exercise and made sure to get
plenty of rest.

Your new little friend Matilda
is so cute. What a lovely little
gift to receive all the way from
England. She's so beautifully
made too. Crochet?

Cheers! Have a great week!
