not much to show

It feels like I stitched all weekend but I don't have much to show. :-) I finally finished all the stitching for my Garden Chair and I even started on the actual construction - I glued the drawer together. Because it took me much longer to finish the stitching I didn't have time to get to any of my Quaker Turtles. I forgot to take a photo of my BBD Mystery but as predicted I did run out of blue floss and I should have a new skein waiting for me when I get home after work. Then I'll finish it tomorrow - and remember to take a photo. On Friday the plan had been to start my Etui for my train rides this week and next. I needed to prepare it for stitching and totally forgot it. Sunday evening around 9:30pm I had to get ready for work in the morning and finally remembered but by then it was too late. So I just tossed the only thing that was really ready to go in my bag and that was the Big Zipper. So much for plans. :-) There is not much to show yet so I didn't take a photo. I will for sure tonight.

Here are all the pieces to the Garden Chair. As usual I can't take a good photo. :-)

Tracy of Ink Circles, made available to everyone who is current with Book of Ink Circles the final piece on Thursday. I emailed her and received my copy of the last chart and finished it on Sunday. Part of the deal was however, that I wait until tomorrow to post my finish. So tune in tomorrow for a finis photo of it. I love the completed project but I'm glad I was able to remove it from my WIPs.

Chevy was neutered last Wednesday and what should have been a routine surgery turned major when the vet discovered that he had one undescended testicle. So they had to go into his abdomen and find it. Poor boy. He's feeling much better now. His potty training is coming along and he is going to make someone a great pet.

I can't wait to see your Garden Chair assembled. Your stitching looks wonderful. I've got this all ready to start stitching on, but have to clear up some other projects first! Hope Chevy feels much better soon!

I'm looking forward to seeing your chair put together. I found spreading it out over a couple of days helped
