It has been a long week.....had 40+ hours in by the noon on Thursday.   Part catch up from having off between Christmas and New Years, part a couple of major projects, part that I seem to have to cover for everyone who is out but have no back up myself.  Before I headed out the door Friday morning, I stopped long enough to enjoy the morning sky.     Like the sailor's sky in the morning, sailors take warning......we got a soaking of rain later Friday afternoon and evening.  

The last two weeks I feel like my mantra has will all be good once you get this/these task/s completed.....ohmmmm.  Not complaining, just putting a name to the culprit that has left coffee mugs in the sink, afghans tossed across the sofa, mail unopened, laundry not put away and has allowed for little stitching and caused a bit of frogging.

Seems when you are tired is not the time to find comfort in stitching.   I missed an entire row on one block on Santa's coat.   Thankfully I realized it was a bit wonky before I did the back stitching and starting the frogging.  Whew! Good break for me.

Good new is I am super happy with my progress.     Also, making me happy is that I have stuck to using my treadmill at least 5 days a week, started a Walk-Fit class at work, signed up for a retreat in New England this summer and am two weeks away from my Caribbean cruise!  Think I should take a few minutes this weekend to fine my passport!

So funny, I took a picture of the morning sky today and it looks very similar to the one you put up and we are suppose to get soaking rain later
Sorry about the stitching...hope your energy returns! Dianntha

Love your progress on this Santa. I had to go back a post or two to remind myself that they are french knots! That is so neat!!

I was feeling quite sorry for you until I got to the bit about the Caribbean cruise LOL. Hope you have a lovely relaxing time.

I love the hem of the Santa coat, how did you stitch that?
