just some letters


I only have the letters on the left to go - I'll start on those tonight on the way home from work. I think two weeks of train rides was really quick for this piece. Since last Monday that is around 20 hours on the train and around three hours work at home. I'd like to try and do Quaker Samplings II before summer starts but I have so many things on my list ready to start, not sure if that will happen. And some of those things are more Quaker designs. I'd like to get this piece framed right away but I know I need to wait until the second one is finished so they match.

The big question is for me, do I finish this up tonight or do I work on the Village and almost finish up block 4? I already think I know the answer, finish Quaker Samplings tonight! :-) Then I can bring My Treasured Workstation as my train project for the next couple of days. At this point, I don't think I'll finish what I need to before the next part comes out.

I do have plans for this weekend so I'm not sure how much stitching I'll get in. Hopefully Friday evening for sure and some time on Saturday after I take Molly to agility practice (she needs weave pole help!). On Sunday, I'll be gone all day at the Chicago Kennel Club Dog Show at McCormick Place so only stitching that evening. My agility teacher, Anne Riba, is trialing her Belgian Malinois, Temi, on Sunday. Temi is currently ranked the number 10 dog in the country and Anne only has time to run her at trials on Sundays! They are an amazing team. I told Anne last night that Clancy and I wanted to be just like them when we grow up. :-) Speaking of Clancy, he was wonderful last night at class.

Thanks so much for your super nice comments over the past few days! I really appreciate them all. I've added the new commenters to my blog role. Thanks for stopping by!
