It's That Time Again - An Update

Yes, it's Monday, already. I could swear we just HAD a Monday... At least I only have 3 days this week - leaving for Ohio on Thursday afternoon, for my niece's wedding in Columbus on Saturday :) I have to get my pre-registration form into the fair today - I'm kinda feeling a little indifferent about it, actually. So if I don't actually get to it and make my final decisions (on photos), I don't think I'll care that much; it just feels good to get a few things framed. We'll see; it's just not a high priority at the moment...


In stitching news, I worked on a few things this week, though I am now pretty sure I will NOT get BoaF done before I leave Thursday; too many leaves! Not to mention, the hill the house sits on in Part 3 looks like it's going to be tedious - gorgeous when done, but slow going to get there. I am looking forward to adding the sheep :) Here is where it stands right now:


I also put the first stitches into the small piece I am doing for the Stitcher's Village Sampler Project (it's in the Forum, if you are a member - and if you aren't, check it out!) It's one of the colorways for Patricia Ann's Rose for Every Season, done on 32ct linen banding, with the DMC floss and perle, and Kreinik braid called for - except I negated one of the floss colors by adding beads instead :) Because that's just how I roll, baby! But you probably already knew that...:


And lastly, at the Tuesday Night IHOP, I couldn't decide what to work on - since I finished Tanglewood, my project bag is strangely light on Projects for Less Than Optimum Light. But in the end, Mary Wigham came out, and I got one motif done, and better than half on a second one - and after it was full dark outside, then the yellow lights over the tables killed me, so I stopped before 9:30. But I got more of that Old Maid of the Aubergine in - I LOVE that color :)


So this week, I will keep working on BoaF until I leave; I haven't decided yet if I am going to the stitch night tomorrow, or if I have too much to do. I want to, just don't know what will pile up if I'm gone before being gone, know what I mean? This small Patricia Ann project will go with me to OH, whether or not I have time or inclination to work on it is another story. Might drag an ornie with me, too, since I have 6 of those kitted and ready to go, as well; Tree of Stitches from The Stitch Specialists group is also kitted - yes, I caved - but I haven't put in ANY stitches on it, so I only partially caved :) I don't expect I'll get an update in next week, or if I do, it'll probably be late. So until whenever that is, Happy Stitching, everyone - and come on October!!!!


And I'll just leave you with this little bit of eye candy - not usually a big fan of dreads, but in this case, I might be willing to make an exception. Because, you know, he's a barbarian :)

Oh man..... I love Jason Momoa!!! He's so gorgeous and the sweetest and smartest guy. We heard him on an interview once and it's so refreshing to hear someone so in love with his wife and kids and who exuded such humility.

Have a great trip to your niece's wedding, and our WIPs look fabulous, as always. :D

Wow, yummy! What a great pic, Karen. Thanks. Hope you enjoy your trip to our lovely state! If I had known earlier, I would have suggested a meet!!! Alas, it was too late for me to budget the extra gas money, so not this time. I hope the wedding is wonderful.

Beautiful projects!! I love your mystery sampler.

My taste goes more for Robert Pattinson, but I enjoyed the Conan style eye candy all the same. ;)

You're much further on in your Mary Wigham than I am. Not had time to stitch on it since the beginning of July thanks to the kids summer break. Looks great
