Not a stitch put in :-)


I had a wonderful couple of days off and weekend. But I was so busy with party plans I didn't have time to put a single stitch into any of my projects. I'm even behind with my train project - my IsaV Grand Marquior as I slept a couple of rides last week. I can't even remember the last time I didn't stitch for so long of a period. I'm way behind with regards to my House #6 of HoHRH. I haven't even started yet. I'm hoping tonight I can at least start on the border. Summer agility is now in full swing and I'm starting to fill up my weekends like crazy so I'll have even less time going forward for a couple of months.

The birthday party for my Dad was fun and the weather even cooperated somewhat with the rain stopping several hours before everyone came and the sun even came out for a while. Yesterday was the first decent weekend day in weeks - warm and sunny and I worked like a dog outside. I'm almost finished with most of the larger tasks that I assigned myself in the spring. Now I can just enjoy. :-)

We all have weekends like this, it's nice to know the stitching is there when you are ready. CJ ok;-)

It's hard to find time to stitch during the summer, let alone the weekends. But you did get a little bit done and it looks wonderful.

Congrats on the success of the party - entertaining is a lot of work isn't it? Your "Simple Things" finish is really great - much better-looking than the photo on the chart and it looks like you left off the chain stitching around the flowers & leaves. I like your version better than the model! I'm sure your stitching mojo will be back soon. :)

You know, you just can't stitch all the time. Even if you want to. Or so they keep on telling me. lol I love this sampler; I know you'll pick it up again when you can. Enjoy your agility runs. Clancy is lookin' good!

I have to say, Margie, that I would never think to choose the colors you are using on Marquoir, but they are gorgeous!
