Yesterday was a simply lovely day with my EGA guild sisters. We had a wonderful potluck picnic, learned how to make little beaded snowflake ornaments, and then heard a presentation about attending the Royal School of Needlework. I was away from the house for much longer than I intended, but I think it was good for all of us to have a little break. Stewey probably enjoyed snoozing in the sun without having me hover, Bosco was able to just be himself without me having to warn him to be careful of Stewey, and I really needed a moment to be something other than a fretting Mommie Dearest.
My Bargello Challenge piece is coming along nicely. That's the thing about bargello...once you get the pattern established, the actual stitching of it goes pretty fast. I'm still concerned about the thread coverage, and hope that the instructor won't deduct points for it, but I do like the color and texture that is resulting from using perle cotton, so I suppose that counts for something.
I hope that you are having a lovely, quiet, happy, and peaceful Sunday. Do something wonderful and then cone tell us all about it!
