Stewey and I thought long and hard about it, and we decided that this piece is finished for now. I didn't do the last two sections of outer borders, but I think I want to move on to something different. And, if I re-visit this one, I think I want to play with the colors a little bit since these were a little unusual for me. The good news is that Ms. Orna provides you with several options, so selecting alternatives should be easy breezy!
The weekend was cold and snowy and stitchy and West Wing-y. Aunt Chrissy and I spent good portions of the last few days on our respective heinies and I am feeling so well rested today that I think it's almost time for a mid-morning nap. Yawn.
I noticed that Ms. Ruth completed the last lesson on the Raymond Crawford "Merry Christmas" canvas, so I suppose that this one is very near the end. Oh boo hoo hoo hoo hoo. This project has been like one big box of chocolates for me, so I just can't bear the thought of finally finishing that last piece. It has been a total blast to do, and I am really looking forward to working on similar stuff in my stitchy future.
Stewey's little cold is finally gone. He did manage to sneeze all over me yesterday for good measure, but I think that's just because I wouldn't give him a cookie. We're having a bit of a battle on that front, since he thinks "All cookies all the time" is a perfectly reasonable nutritional solution and that I should stop fussing over the fact that he goes days and days without eating any of his Puppy Chow. The vet tells me that this is perfectly normal and that his health and weight are perfect for his size, but I still worry about him. Damn dog.
We're ready for Monday! I hope that the week ahead is perfectly perfect in every way for you. Stitch something fabulous!
