weather woes - again

The weather forecast tonight/tomorrow AM is for 5-8 inches of snow. When will winter ever be over? I need a week on a beach so bad right now I can taste it. :-)

Over the weekend I started on The Drawn Thread's Sampler of Stitches, STU. I'm actually hoping to be finished with this tonight and U is a fairly small band and I'm almost finished with T. I haven't been stitching much at all over the past several days. I worked at home on Thursday and Friday and barely made a dent on Two Blue Houses (below) and I didn't put a stitch in at all on Saturday on anything. Yesterday I went to the big Chicago Kennel Club dog show (not to participate but to watch) and I only had a little time in the evening. The good news is, this is a short week for me. I took off work Thursday, Friday and Monday! Yeah! The bad news is, I only have Thursday and Monday to stitch because on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Clancy and I have an agility trial. I'm hoping for our Standard Novice Title this weekend. But I'll be happy with any Q he gives me. :-)

But in any case, it's ornament weekend and I'm already behind for the year as I didn't do anything in January. So I'll bring something small and easy to see with me to the trial and I'll try out my cool new mini stitching light. And since I'll be about 5 minutes from my LNS, I'll stop in on Friday and see what's new. Yeah, like I need anymore charts! LOL!
