It has been a bit longer than I thought. I now know that however beautiful I find the Pacific Northwest, I NEED the sun! Between all the rain and a migraine, I just want to hibernate.
This pose pretty much sums up how the cats and I have spent the week.
I have made a little, emphasis on little, progress on Diligence
I do keep getting sidetracked by stitching smaller things
This is the Fanny Cravett Sampler by HandWork. I'm not crazy about the linen I chose. In real life the linen looks browner. Oh well. I'm still enjoying On Diligence, so I just need to focus on that and get it done. I may be feeling a little overwhelmed by the border for some reason. If I want to do any stitching for Christmas, I need to start NOW. My mother and sister are so difficult to buy for. I thought I would stitch this for my mother
and this for my sister, whose name is Robin
I would also like to do some Christmas knitting, but I probably should have started last Christmas as slow as I knit.
I'm really glad I finally spent the money for this
Such pretty samplers, and I love reading the history.
My parents live in the country, and you never know what you're going to run into. Maybe literally.
These were some very friendly goats that somehow ended up on the wrong side of their fence. I guess I need to start carrying some kibble in the car. I just hope they weren't on their way to my parents' field, that's never fun trying to sort their animals from the visitors.
That's it for now, time to go be focused :)
