I actually stitched along with Katrina, Kath, and Cathy last night on my Drawn Thread Spot of Spring. Probably one more stitching session on this one and it will be done! One problem I've had in switching projects every couple of days is remembering that the DT designs usually use one thread of floss in the needle. I picked up my needle last night and immediately loaded two threads and stitched the letters before realizing I should have used only one! Oh well, I wasn't going to let the frogs visit and just moved on to the sunflowers and used one thread. I think it looks fine and will have to remember to use two threads when stitching the last two letters, lol!
Here's my progress on the Shepherd's Bush ornament I'm stitching with Connie. I'm planning to continue stitching this one over the weekend. Sorry about the blurry pic. I'll do better next time!
Did anyone else see Vero's blog yesterday? She featured this gorgeous book, Where Women Create: Inspiring Work Spaces of Extraordinary Women. While waiting for a prescription to be filled, I drove over to Barnes and Noble to see if they had it in stock. I was in luck! And it was on sale. It's just full of beautiful photos of studios belonging to designers in a variety of arts. I haven't had an opportunity to spend quality time with this beauty, but you can be sure it's going to be close at hand.
DS Brendan is still sleeping this morning following his appointment yesterday with the dentist. Four teeth removed with no complications other than Brendan needing more than the usual amount of novacaine. Seems he's full of nerves, lol! He handled it all very well, especially considering this was his first time having his mouth deadened. I did give him the pain meds, but I doubt he'll need any today. I'll be saving those for when his braces are put on.
