I did it, I finally did it. I finished German Garden today. Nathaniel took some good naps and went to bed with no fussing, so I got some lovely stitching time in. Here is my finished Garden.
I am so thankful it is finally finished. I thought it would never be done. This weekend I will spend a little time working on Bine’s RR and then on to M9 which is next on my rotation. I need to come up with a reasonable completion type goal for that as I think I am going to be demotivated by a time goal. I have not been at all keen on that piece either. There are other things that are really calling me.
On to some sad news…my maternity leave officially ends next week. Nathaniel will be twelve weeks old next Wednesday and I am back to work on March 3. He is going to be starting day care for half days Monday through Wednesday of next week and Thursday and Friday he will be doing full days. I am very sad:( I really wish I could stay home with him! Over the weekend I will be planning a list of things to do to occupy myself while he is gone. At least once I am at work I will be busy enough to keep from thinking about him every second, but next week will be hard. The up side is I can get a few chores done that are near impossible while he is at home. I also plan on using either Thursday or Friday exclusively for movies and stitching. Yippee!
