Hanging in there...

I haven't done much stitching lately. I had a dinner date on Friday night then I drove to my friend's house. We visited until the wee hours. Saturday I had the opportunity, but had left my stitching behind. Oh well, I did a little when I got to the house, after dinner, before leaving to meet up with a friend. After I got back to my friend's house I stayed up with my "2nd daughter" and we girl-talked/vented until the wee hours. Sunday I did a lot of traveling and read instead of stitched. On Monday I had a friend come over and we cuddled on the couch and watched tv. That was so much nicer than stitching!

But it's a good thing that I waited because the next section to the Book of Ink Circles - Celtic Mystery was released. Next week we should get the next installment of How Does Your Garden Grow and the Spanish Sampler. (I'm waiting for the next part of the Spanish Sampler to come out before I decide to start it. If I do, I know I'm going to do the monochromatic version and I'll need to choose the fabric and thread, etc.)

I did the cutting of one section of the model that I still have. I need to start doing the wrapping. This is going to be interesting!

I also did more on an exchange that I've signed up for. It's looking really good and it's coming along. I'm very happy with it so far.

I haven't touched Castle Ridge since last week. I really need to get that done soon. I've started the backstitching on the roofs and I'm happy with that progress. If that's the only thing I have to do! Nope, I've still got lots of confetti to do for the rocks below the castle. I give it another month. Hopefully I'll be done with it then.

No progress on my ornament lately. Everything else has been more exciting and easier to stitch.

I've got to do some other things tonight, but I'll try to pick up as many as I can.
