Long over due!

Well, for some reason, I have been super tired all week and have focused my energy on stitching rather than blogging. I have done a good job at stitching though! I was able to stitch on all my weekly WIPS and made good progress on them all.

Here is Bordeaux Sampler. Just a few leaves and a lot of grapes left in part two. I had really hoped to finish part two this week, but it just didn’t happen.

Wednesday is now my evening with Stargazer. I was paricularly sleepy that night so I didn’t get as much done as I would like to. I no longer have the carry over to Saturday morning to make huge progress each week. I am still really loving her. I also got the beads for her earlier in the week. I had a hard time convincing myself not to pull out my beading needles. As much fun as I have with the beading, it really is easier to save it until the end.

Thursday was a night in the garden. I did a lot of back stitch and had fun with the little butterflies around the pool. They are so cute and I am thinking of making one a “signature” when I finish my bigger pieces. I have always loved butterflies and would represent that it was my piece.

Last night was spent with the bees (and all my Barnabee’s Quest SAL-mates). I made some great progress. I am three bands and some border away from finishing part 1! This is progressing very nicely and is just a lovely piece:)
Since I fell asleep after work Friday and didn’t get but an hour of stitching in, I allowed myself a little more stitching with B today. After dinner I will be good and work some on my Mystery.

And I will leave you with a cute picture of Cooper. This is him chewing on something on the table…bad boy!!!

PS-I had fun answering those questions, so feel free to ask any others!
