Remember last week how I had said I was hoping to finish the cross stitching on Fortunate Treaveller's border? Murphy's Law came for a nice, long visit. Initially I had a quiet weekend planned, just a baby shower to pop into. Lots of stitching time right? Well I was pretty run down by the latter half of last week, so Thursday and Friday night were both nights where I sat and played mindless games on my iPad and went to bed early. I didn't touch my stitching. My quiet weekend turned into being out and about with my friend Christin Friday night, Saturday I went to that baby shower for about an hour, then drove to Montreal (2hrs each way) for a birthday party, spent the night, drove back at lunchtime Sunday, picked up my friend Claire visiting from out of town, spent a few hours teaching her finishing techniques then took her back into the city in time for dinner. I felt like I never had a weekend! I had also taken Monday off of work to spend with Claire and her son who were visiting from out of town. Today I was off sick with a bad headache and sore throat... totally run down. Surprised? Me either.
After last week's Wednesday post, I didn't pick my stitching back up until Monday night. Really that was just a token effort to stitch, not much got done. I finally really got some stitching done last night!

I decided working on a TW wasn't a good idea with how I was feeling so I pulled out the Jingles ornament I started last week. I managed it to finish it last night as well.

Hopefully next week you'll find I've been more productive.
