Hey, hey, hey! Two, two, two!

I stitched on two things this week and here are the progress pictures:

As you can see, I'm getting closer and closer to finishing up Christmas ABC's by Lizzie*Kate. I just have Wreath and Zzzzz to do and I'll be done with it. Optimistically it'll be happy dance time on Friday. Realistically it'll be the week there after. However, I am taking Katy's Violets with me to work on Monday to be my next at work project. You remember that one? The project where I'm stitching a quarter with Anchor, Cosmo, DMC, and Sullivan flosses? No? I can't say that I blame you as I don't think I've worked on it for a couple of months.

And some progress on Flower Power. I don't know if you can really see it, but I've back stitched the daisies and all the daisy leaves... That is, the leaves that don't overlap the lily leaves. I'm going to back stitch those next, and then the bits of lily leaves that I can. I won't back stitch around the one daisy to the bottom until I roll the scrolls a bit to get enough room to add a bee, and add that bee. I'm trying to decide if I want to add a butterfly next or start on a humming bird or attack some of those lilies... Maybe butterfly since it's over 1 and over 1 tries my patience a little bit.

Nothing new on Heirloom Nativity. I'm currently teaching a primary class so I don't take my stitching with me. I can carry two bags, but three? That's just silly. It's only a temporary assignment so I should be back to working on it in a few months. (And who would have thought that teaching 4 eight year olds would be more of a challenge that 8 four year olds??)

This week my Sisters-in-law and I went and saw my Aunt in the Hale's production of Father of the Bride. My Aunt was hillarious. The rest of the play was so-so. It was a comedy, but there just weren't a lot of laugh out loud moments... Unless my Aunt was onstage. I think she got one of the biggest rounds of applause that night.

Other than the play, and a visit to the dentist, the week was fairly quiet and normal. I hope you have a nice peaceful week too.

Hugs and Stitches,
