I am feeling a lot better today. I was in a funk last week. Back and better though. Just needed to do some things to make myself better which luckily I'm getting better at recognizing. I walked away from a commitment that was causing me way too much stress. I feel a ton better now. Anyway on to my stitching which is why you are here...
Monday I stitched up the next awesome section for the Blackwork SAL...
Week 11 now of 27. I will really miss this one when it's finished. It's so exciting to see each new section every Monday.
After I finished that section up I picked up Beer Dragon. I worked on him every day but Saturday. Here he was last Monday...
I was wrong though. I had finished page 3 and started page 4 on this photo. So that little section is the top left of page 4. Here he is now...
Just background so even though confetti stitching it went really fast. I'm on Day 67 now. I still love every moment working on this one. It will be back out soon.
Today is first day of Spring so I can start the Spring Gnome...
Friday we had a great St Patrick's Day...
The boys shirts read Master of Malarkey mine read Let's Day Drink haha. We got to go see the band we love that much. They was at the local Elk's lodge. Jeremiah always gets called out by the lead singer and makes him feel so special. Love it! Dad and Bev came out with a lot and lot of other people. Seriously I bet there was more than 50 people. It was a great night. Saturday we got our taxes filed, groceries, and then went out to Fred's fav cigar bar to hang out. It was a nice day even though no stitching. I made up for it Sunday had lots of time on Beer Dragon.
This week is a slow week nothing much planned other than Saturday we are going back to Fort Wayne to go to a large flea market we attend every year. First one without mom. Crazy every time I say that.
Have a great week. Love yourself. Find your triggers and get away from them. Smile.
Katie: It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend.
Nice progress on Blackwork and the Beer Dragon.
Very good progress on both of your projects. Quite huge ones you are working on.
Looks like you had a great weekend.
Your stiching in looking great. I like you current system for working on things.
I am working on a big project and now have small grouping small projects more or less kitted up, though some have been started, and they get 30 minutes each day with the rest of time, when it's available goes to the big project. The Feb challenge really got me going the smaller ones without too much neglect of the big one.
All of your projects are growing nicely, Katie! Love the photo of you three in your Irish green!! Glad you had a fun St. Patrick's Day ♥
The Blackwork looks great! I love it too, so simple but nice. Beer Dragon is coming along great too. Can't wait to see your Spring Gnome! I am sure "Master of Malarkey" was perfect for them, they look like they can get up to some mischief! LOL
Oooh, sounds like you are learning your limits and taking care of yourself, good for you!! You all look very happy in your St. Patty's shirts! One of my favorite holidays as my maiden name was Murphy...I used to love the wearing of the green! Beer dragon is coming along nicely...those confetti stitches kick my butt too! Can't wait to see your spring gnome! Happy Stitching!
Well done on keeping up with the blackwork! And the background on Beer Dragon too.
Love your matching shirts!
