Short, pictureless update

Since Dad got sick, I have been in a funk, and haven't stitched much. Dad is doing much better. He's been home for more than a week, but he can't go to work just yet. He's bummed. Really, he is! Finally started to get back into the stitching groove again. Very little done on Monopoly. I am back to "Father's Eyes". After some frogging (GRRR!), I am back to stitching away. It's starting to look great!

I also started another small piece (yes, that makes how many WIP's now?!). I will post a longer update this weekend.

Thanks for reading! Take care!

Not much to report

Well, not much progress on anything for the last few days. My Dad got sick the other day, so I spent some time at the hospital with him, plus I had some other stuff to do this past weekend. I will update my blog with pics, etc. when I have something more to report. Sorry for the lack of updates this week.

On another note: DH and I have been talking the last few days. I have been wanting to mention to him that I would like to start a business. A small one. I would love to design CS, maybe even make some small handmade items to sell. I hadn't even mentioned it to him. He suggested that we start a business together. WOW! He even suggested that I open a CS store. Not sure if I will do that, but.....we still have a lot of talking to do. I'm sure we will come up with something. He also mentioned that one or both of us could write books. I started a novel, but haven't touched it in ages. Plus, I have considered writing children's books (rather short ones, but books all the same!). He would rather write something else (not sure what, tho). Anyway....we have some more talking to do before we decide anything.

Until later...

Here is a pic!

OK, here it is - finally! Yes, I know the quilt was only a small portion of the whole piece, but it was a major milestone for me. Plus, I didn't have to frog a single stitch! YAY!

And a pic of the whole piece when I was done with the quilt!

Thanks for looking!

YES! I got the quilt done!

I just HAVE to post! I promise to get a picture up later this week, but I FINALLY got the quilt done on "Father's Eyes"! I can't wait to finish this piece. It's a bit slow going because there are a ton of color changes, but it is coming along quite nicely. I am enjoying it more now!

Stay warm and safe!

Just a short note...

Just a short note about this past week. All 3 of us at home have been sick with a cold. I fell asleep at 8:30 one night, so I never got to stitch that night. I am almost done with the quilt on "Through a Father's Eyes". I have about 20 stitches to go yet, which I HOPE to finish tonight. If I do, I will post a picture later this week. After that, I don't plan to post any more pics of it until I am done page 2. I haven't done much else in stitching lately because I have been busy at work. Hopefully I will get around to doing more stitching at lunch later this week, or next week.

Until later, have fun and be safe!
