Saturday was supposed to be a "let's run around and do all of our errands day", but I wimped out and cleaned the house instead. Aunt Chrissy did the very same to her Chez Stitchy, so by the time the sun went down there were two very happy spinsters in Hoosierville. It must've been the moon..or maybe the tides....because even Stewey got a scrubby bath with good 'ol Irish Spring soap. (And yes, in the event you were wondering, I did , in fact spend the rest of the night cuddling him and sniffing all of the clean soft downy fur puppy goodness.)
In addition to this, I finally decided how to finish Shepherd's Bush My Land:
As you can see, I opted not to stitch the entire song around the edges, but rather use only a few of the words at the very bottom. I even fished out the graph paper and everything so that I could have some semblance of order when it came to the actual lettering. What do you think? Can we call this another finish for 2010 and whisk it off to the Michael's for some framing action?
I was still on a roll, so I picked up La-D-Da's Daisy Daisy Kit and got quite a bit done. I know I say this every time (and then never do), but methinks this will stay next to the Happy Chair until the last stitch is completed:
Other happenings are just as dull around here. I'm still watching/obsessing over all things Tudors, and have now managed to see all of the available episodes at least four times. (I know, I know....an intervention is definitely in order, but when the view from the Happy Chair looks like this on a lazy Sunday, who am I to complain):
Stewey is anxiously waiting for his BFF Aunt Chrissy to arrive. She made him a pedicure appointment for this afternoon, so he's really looking forward to spending some quality time with a life form that he feels adequate to his intellect. Damn dog.
I hope that you're off to a good week! We're plodding along like a herd of turtles around here and should make it to Friday before we figure out what hit us.
