Thank goodness for a great night of sleep...almost 9 hours! Really I don't think I had much choice as I was so freakin' tired after the episodes Sunday night - LOL. Tyg was inside last night, but did not bother me until 5:30 this morning.
Another week has gone by since my last TNT post and a bit of progress has been made. I don't seem to be stitching this in any particular order - I'm kind of all over the place and just working on what strikes my fancy.
And a close up of what was accomplished this past week,
On the left side, I stitched the cluster of three acorns and a leaf, the yellow leaf to the left of that and the owl (or some bird) underneath. On the right side I managed to stitch the letter J and the leaf that really looks like a chili pepper. The dark green motif to the right of the A is a start on a large central motif on the sampler. Perhaps that motif will be finished by next week. There is still SO MUCH to be stitched on this piece and luckily it is still holding my interest. I may work a bit more on it today...or not...
I've decided I do want to cast on for the Guernsey Wrap I plan to make. But first I need to get an old, partially knit and abandoned sweater off the needles because I need my 32" size 8 circular for the Wrap. I've been meaning to unravel this sweater for some time, so today is the day. Most likely I will be holed up in my home office for at least the morning. I need to stay out of the way! We have a plumber coming this morning to install a new kitchen sink (Yay!! Finally a sink large enough to fit my large roasting pan) and faucet and also two new toilets. Should be a fun morning (not) and a pricey one! Best if I am out of sight.
