Weekend Update

Lunch hours at work are rough.   I feel more like I am sitting
at a Marriott then three short flights of stairs from my office!
Progress has been slow on my Jeannette Douglas piece. A sorry state of affairs when I share that this is the only project I am currently stitching on.   I have fallen into the method of only stitching on one project at a unlike Side Track Robin.  It really does make completion so much faster, but one does need to take time to put needle and thread to fabric if you wish to see progress.  I am enjoying the different stitches in this piece but have not spent much time stitching except for a half hour at lunch most days and during my Thursday night stitching group which sometimes means I rip just as much as I stitch once we get chatting away!  

Needing a couple of extra hands to hold this flat to photograph I grabbed a few of my scissors to help.

Called into service - not getting much use since I got my Dovos!

A favorite.  Even got my kids hooked on this game.

Little stitching going on since I've had a couple weeks with early morning meetings and late nights at work.  The mornings I am not going in early I seem to be just a vegetable sipping my first cuppa of the day and playing Words with Friends or Seven Little Words.

Come to think of it, I think I have been tired since Mr. W. returned home......hmmm, does the mean he makes work?   Not really, he is pretty self-sufficient.  I think it is sharing the bed, the covers and the snoring.......hmmm, twin beds or separate bedroom in the future?  Maybe just be the dog days of summer.  
Where I will be spending the afternoon (hopefully)
stitching but first housework and laundry.
Today is certainly not one of those dog days of summer.....we have a beautiful weekend of almost early fall like weather ahead of us.   I am going to have to see what I can get into outside!  To that point, I need to share a website I found.   It is called My Fairs and Festivals.   Enter the date, enter the state (or zip) and viola' you get a list of all the fairs, festivals and events for that day/weekend in that area.  Imagine you are traveling and will be in Soddy Daisy, TN (Hi! Diane) for the week and want to know what is going on.....pretty cool.   So many times there are things going on just around the corner that I never know about until I read about it in the Monday morning paper.   It was just a stroke of luck to find the site and you be sure I have bookmarked it.

OK, folks, sun is shining and the humidity low and I need to get a move on.   Happy stitching all!

Hi Robin, it is beautiful today here in Soddy Daisy, TN. Sun trying to shine and low humidity but unfortunately still not able to really enjoy it. Pool water too cold now with all the rain but would have been nice therapy. I will be good to go though in October. Diane
