So what have I been up to.....hmmm? Not much really. Seems I go to work, come home, hit the treadmill and not much longer after having my back side hits the recliner, I fall asleep! This is driving me crazy because of course I am waking pre-dawn and repeating the process. It is crazy time at work with covering an open position and working on the company's annual report, stir and mixed with the regular duties. The only thing I care to stir is a Gin and Tonic!
I haven't worked on Things Unseen Mystery Sampler from Lizzie Kate since before my cruise. I have seen it completed on the internet and I am liking it! So far it has been a fun piece. I plan to concentrate on this in the coming weeks. Seems I am not as far along as I remember.
I have been reading a lot. Not thrilled with my current read, "The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao". Just not cutting it for me. So many books and so little time. I have permission from my Librarian daughter to toss it aside if after the first 100 pages I am not taken to it. I'm on page 85 now. It's not looking good for me and Oscar.
I finished "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" and fell in love with the Channel Islands and its people. I was not aware of the German Occupation during World War II and was caught up in how this group survived and - in true British form - were able to carry on afterwards. I even Zillowed homes for sale there.
I almost finished 1990 Santa from Prairie Schooler. I hope this doesn't sit in my pile of finishes to be finished for too long once the last stitches are made.
And I got my guild stitch-a-long at our meeting this weekend. The schedule allows for a year to finish it. I think that is doable. I stopped at the LNS afterwards to pick up some floss. I think I might just overcast the edges and put this on my scroll frame to get started. Oh woe is me! Another WIP!
Stay warm all, stay safe an the roads, and keep on stitching.
