Even though I felt poopy last night I still manage…

Even though I felt poopy last night I still managed to get a good two hours stitching on Olde World map. Of course that did mean a continuation of the frogs I caught on Monday night, so it doesn’t really seem like much progress. I think I am going to like getting each of my pieces out once a week. It breaks things up and I really feel motivated to sit down and stitch. If I had been focusing on the same piece for a while, I probably wouldn’t have stitched at all last night considering my mood. Instead, I have this to show for my evenings work…

Tonight I was in a much better mood, eventhough I still felt icky. Fortunately, I do not seem to have the horrible flu my friend at work has that has kept her home since the Tuesday after Christmas.

After making some really yummy burritos (I am doing good on my diet so far this year), I made my first attempt at cording. Allen was a bit confused at why I wanted to borrow his cordless screwdriver. The cording turned out surprisingly well and really spruced up my Garden Exchange piece. That and a few goodies are now packed in a box and ready to be taken to the post office on my way home from work tomorrow. One thing to check off my to do list for January. Now I just need to start my Valetine Exchange. I am still debating which of the two patterns to stitch. I will have to make a decision tomorrow night.

To end my evening of stitching, I put in 2.5 hours of work on Celtic Winter. Her skirt is really filling out. Maybe I will even catch up with Becky and Carol… not a chance:)

Tomorrow night is on to Becca’s wedding sampler, which is quite appropriate as her friends and I are starting to plan her bridal shower. Since she is so athletic, I think we will be throwing her a Maryland/DC sports team themed shower. Hopefully this will ward off the evil deamons that will be born into our family when she marries her Yankees fan husband (other than this nasty trait, he is a wonderful guy).



  1. Your progress on both pieces looks great 🙂

    I am happy to hear that you had success with the cording 🙂 I can’t wait to see everyone’s Garden Exchange 🙂

  2. Both are looking great!

  3. I’ve decided I really and truly don’t like exchanges at all – no-one can post piccies of their happy dances, and I’m feeling very impatient 😉 Can’t wait to see the exchange pieces for both the garden and valentines ones. At least we could see your progress piccies for your WIPs, though – and they’re both looking great 🙂
