TUSAL & Goals

Last night I was home too late from Ultimate Frisbee (my newest activity) to get a blog entry in, but here it is today.  I took my Ort Jar out to get some fresh air this evening to be photographed.  You'll notice lots of blues/whites/greys in this layer all from Enchantment of Winter.  I have to say when you're stitching over one or backstitching you don't produce a lot of orts.

I also realized, gee this is the start of a new month so I should review my goals form May and set some for June.

May Goal Review
Work on Enchantment of Winter - Sure did
Work on The Accolade - Going pretty well actually
Stitch 1 Ornament - Yes
Work on Quilt Blocks - Barely touched it, but touched it a little

June Goals
Work on Enchantment of Winter
Work on The Accolade
Stitch 1 Ornament
Finish 1 Quilt Block

Thanks everyone for your awesome words over my 10K race last weekend!  Your comments mean a lot to me and made me feel great about my accomplishment ... though it did make me realize how slow of a runner I am, but I am a runner!

Here's a great shot of Zeus I got last week as the sun was setting.

Your ort jar shows that you have been stitching so that's a good thing. The bleeding hearts in the background are beautiful. You are a runner! I think it's great what you have done. Look how far you have come since 2009. I think you are fantastic, girl and a great inspiration.

I think maybe I'll actually HAVE some orts next month. I've been stitching some, yeah!!!

Zeus is adorable with her hair all sticking up in the light.

Gorgeous pic of Zeus. She looks mystical!! And your TUSAL looks pretty. I don't have many ORTs at all as I just emptied my little tin. Congrats on meeting all your goals this month, and good luck meeting them this month!!

Beautiful ORTs, Dani! It doesn't really matter how many you produce, does it?

That kitten photo is wonderful! She is growing fast!

Karen said...
