Happy Monday! What a week it has been! It started off so strong last Monday, then unfortunately I became ill by Thursday and by Saturday I had a flare up of my back injury. So for the last few days I’ve been resting and binge watching A Discovery of Witches. I’ve also been stitching a lot as well, it’s an excellent distraction from pain. Hopefully this coming week will be less painful and more productive.
Monday Morning Rotation
My “weekend” project this week has been Purple Chick by Mill Hill. This is the first two sided piece I’ve ever done, but I love trying new things. This cutie is taking a little bit of time, the symbols used in this pattern like to play tricks with my eyes. Still, it’s going to be really cute once it’s done.
On The Frame
Over on my Millennium Frame I am still working on Cozy Cafe by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery, the 2021 SAL. The first segment is Raspberry Mocha and I am almost ready to put some beads on those raspberries! Some stitchers are waiting until the very end to do the beads so they don’t get squished in Q-snaps and such. Since my frame rolls, and I don’t think I will be rolling it up by much, I’m going to bead as I go along.
Sadly I have not been doing much reading this week. However, I have gotten started on And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. It’s been so long since I read Agatha Christie, then my husband got me started with a copy of Death On The Nile for Christmas. Since then I’ve been enjoying delving into the Hercule Poriot adventures.
That’s it for this update, thanks for reading and have a blessed week.
