Hello my friends, I hope this post finds you all well and healthy. This past week was great and stressful in so many ways. Of course I started off the week leaving after a wonderful visit with my family in Pennsylvania, then the week ended with multiple doctors appointment. Despite that chaos and stress I feel like I’m back into the swing of our daily routine and activities.
Monday Morning Rotation
So this week I am putting away I Love You Dearly by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery and moving onto the next piece in rotation. These cute little deer got some additional time during this rotation because they went with me on our trip last weekend. I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out. The deer are absolutely adorable and I should be able to get most of the border done the next time they come out.
On The Frame
Last week I didn’t really get a lot of work in on Animal Almanac. Unfortunately, I came home from PA with some friction burns on the side of my index fingers on both hands. Only two late did I realize that the extendable leash I was using with the dogs while we were visiting was causing some friction and irritation. Anyway thanks to some Cortizone and Shea butter they healed up pretty well and I was able to get some stitching done on the adorable barn in block nine between Sunday and Monday. Hopefully this coming week I will make even more progress as I am back in my regular stretching routine.
I finally finished And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie on our drive home from Pennsylvania. I want to say that I loved it because, well, it’s Agatha Christie, but I actually didn’t love it. I think because there was no detective, no Hercule Poriot or Miss Marple to be our guide as they investigated the mysterious deaths surrounding Soldier Island. Also I wasn’t a fan of the epilogue, but that’s OK, no one needs to love every single book written by their favorite author or even from the Queen of Mystery. Moving forward, I am giving myself a mental break from reading novels and plan on catching up with articles and blogs I’ve been meaning to read.
That’s it for this update, thanks for reading and have a blessed week.
