it's in the mail

My casket is in the mail and the expected delivery date is this Friday. I'm almost finished with the stitching on the current page - just one tiny motif and a biggish sized one left. I'll be done with those by tonight if I stitch before leaving for agility class with Clancy. Then it's onto the last page which has two small motifs and three larger ones and a couple of numbers. There is a small chance I'll be finished before I get the mail after work on Friday. :-) If not I'll be finished with the stitching by Saturday for sure and that means sometime on Sunday, I'll have a finished Quaker Casket sitting on my coffee table full of my stitching treasures. :-) I can't wait.

Then of course I need to pick out what's next! I'm really thinking of stitching my St. Reatham for a couple of weeks. The plan had been to finish it this year and I still have three full pages (out of eight) of chart to go. I dated it this year and I don't want to have to pull out those stitches. I haven't worked on it a bit since June - I can't believe how long it's been. Much, much too long. If nothing else, I could always try to work on it every Thursday. That had been the plan when I started it last year (on April 26) but I only kept that up for a couple of weeks.
