Hello dear friends...
It's been about a week since I last posted so I think it's time for an update! Nothing too exciting in my little neck of the woods. I am trying to spend a little more time at home and try to tackle projects. I wasn't entirely productive this past week since I had dinner plans twice. Then I made impromptu plans with a dear friend I hadn't seen in two or three weeks since I was sick so it was time to catch up with him and see what was new. Then I had brunch plans with another dear friend and next thing I know, half the weekend is over! And then I decided I wanted to make a one-pot meal for the week. I don't really like to cook but I came across a recipe for curry shrimp chowder so I made it! It came out yummy although I think it needs something else. I don't know what even though I used 2x the amount of curry powder the recipe called for. I'm much better and intuitive about baking! Cooking...and cleaning up after takes time. Now I remember why I'm not that fond of it! :) And then I just caught up with shows, did laundry, housesat and stitched some on Jane. Oh and I finally put away Christmas. Only took 35 days past Christmas for me to do it. I am so behind in all aspects of life...not just stitching. But I vow to catch up sooner rather than later!
I stitch by color...does anyone else do that? I think most people stitch by motif so I have some incomplete motifs. I really enjoyed working with the medium green in this section despite having stitched with that forest green for months on the pine border. Once I finish this top third, I will whip it off the rods and iron the heck out of that crease. It's driving me nuts but laziness prevails when I think about ironing and then having to put it back on the rods. No fun...so I keep stitching.
As I stitch, I keep thinking about things I want to stitch. At the top of the list are BOAF A Very Fine Sampler, some ornies and Letters to Santa. I still haven't sorted a travel project so Jane has gotten all my attention. A couple more nights and she will be abandoned for social time. I have two happy hours, a possible scavenger hunt, Superbowl viewing (Go NINERS!!) and a movie night. Huh...how did that happen?! At least next week and weekend is looking pretty quiet...so far.
I hope everyone is having a good week so far!
Until next time...
Un Adorno de Navidad
