WIP Wednesday on a Thursday

If you were looking last night or today for my WIP Wednesday post, I'm sorry it wasn't there for you.  Last night I had an appointment at the sleep clinic at the hospital.  If you've ever had one you'll know how fun it isn't to try to sleep with wires and stuff all over your head, face, and even your legs!  Then the nerve of them to wake you up and kick you out at 5:30am!!

 As you can see, it wasn't a pretty sight last night!  Once all of that stuff was off in the morning, it was a worse sight as I had this gunk all over my head that was like vaseline but thicker to attach the wires to my head!

The Accolade didn't receive as much attention as it should of this last week.  I was away at one of my little B&B Retreats this past weekend!  Since stitching over one isn't the most ideal thing to do at a stitchy weekend I left the Accolade at home!

 Stitchers Joy
Prarie Moon - Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue 2010
Stitched on Midas Touch Opalescent Linen from Silkweavers
Stitched with Sulky thread

Saturday morning I finished up this ornament that I shared with you last week.  It turned out great I love the combination of the gold fabric and brick red floss.

For the rest of the weekend my Alessandra Adelaide Peacock came out to play.  Christin was working on hers as well!  Mine is on the left and hers is on the right.

As you can see once I got home I made a little more progress on it, but I was a good girl and once Monday rolled around I packed it away again to work on The Accolade.

Hopefully this weekend The Accolade will get my full attention but for some reason I keep getting tempted to stitch some seasonal smalls!!!!  I haven't broken down... yet.

All of your stitching is coming along and looking great!
I don't think I'd be able to sleep with that stuff all over me, either!! I hope they found out what they needed to know after all of that!!!

Jan Jones said...

Love the updates and finish! Hope they found something and all that goo in your hair was worth it.

Xine said...

I hope you get useful info from your time at the sleep lab. I certainly did when I put up with that sort of torture!

Bette said...

I've had 3 sleep tests and they never found anything because I couldn't sleep there! Finally had an at home study which detected my problem. Hated the gunk in my hair! I really like the Joy ornament. Accolade is coming along nicely as well.

Bea said...

Love the ornament and the peacock is looking great.

Your stitching is looking great. The least they could have done was let you sleep in lol:)

Linda said...

Prairie Moon is lovely - I hope the sleep clinic can help after all that!

Brigitte said...

Great progress on the Accolade (which is always mafavourite when you show it) and the Peacock. And such a lovely little finish.

Annie said...

Beautiful stitching. You really accomplish a lot!

Hope the tests help to solve your sleep issues. Certainly didn't look like a fun experience.

Vickie said...

I am in the same spot as you Dani. I want to stitch a seasonal small sooooo bad. I am giving all my time to Theotokos though.

Suz said...

I hope the sleep study was successful (for lack of a better word). I can't even imagine going through one.

Your stitching is coming along beautifully, as always ;) I do love that peacock!

Bonnie Brown said...

You and Christin made excellent progress on your peacocks!

Barbi said...

I have this peacock in my stash...I am totally going to kit this up and start it. That blue is gorgeous. So are they testing for sleep apnea?

Kerryp77 said...

I hope the clinic finds out what they need to from you. Peacock is beautiful and I love the fabric it's stitched on.

D1-D2 said...

5:30 in the morning!! That's rough. Your peacock is looking very nice.

Julie said...

I hope the clinic can help you Dani.
Super little finish.

My only sleep problems are caused by the Small Boy!
Love the pair of peacocks, I can see that you couldn't resist starting the colouring in.
Joy looks great too.

Annette-California said...

Here I am scrolling reading blogs and your photo comes up. let me tell you my heart stopped. But yet I could see you had a little smile on your face. Thank goodness you were only being tested. Whew!
Love all your progress on your wips.
I am still recovering from you giving me that scare.
love Annette

Lulu said...

I hope your sleep study went well! Your AAN peacock looks great and good luck finishing up on the Accolade. You are so close to finishing :)

Kate said...

Lovely stitching. Hope the sleep clinic helps

Anna van Schurman said...

Your peacock is lovely! I hope they find out why you don't sleep well (or too well?).

Parsley said...

How did you sleep at ALL with all that on you? Hope you get it sorted.

Sally said...

Lots of lovely stitching Dani. The Accolade is looking stunning!

I don't think I'd be able to sleep with all that lot on me!

Your Peacock is looking so pretty, love the coloring on this. Hope the sleep study was helpful, it sure looks like it would have been difficult to sleep for them to get any information with all those wires.

Carolyn said...

Dani,
There is no way I could sleep with all those wires! I'm a light sleeper. You are brave.

I love Accolade. It's coming along.

I like those colors on Stitchers Joy.

What a stunning Peacock. Your stitching is great!


Faith... said...

Hoping you got the answers you needed from the sleep study. Doesn't look very comfortable at all.

The Accolade looks great and I hope you had a chance to stitch on it over the weekend! ;)

Jan Gartlan said...

I hope your sleep results are helpful to you. Love your progress on your WIPS.

Carol said...

I've often wondered about those sleep clinic studies as I know I would be one who would never be able to fall asleep!! Hope you get some answers to any sleep problems you're having, Dani.

Love watching your WIPS grow!!
