Our project for the day (taught by Miss Charlene Her Very Self) was Autumn Crackers by Marilyn Owen. These are cute little counted canvas rolls that, when finished, will look adorable in a pretty bowl.
(Or, if you are finish-phobic like me, you'll stitch them and then contemplate slapping them in a Michael's ready-made frame to be done with it.)
There is a lot of decision making to be made in terms of vertical vs. horizontal, colors, stitches tor borders, etc., but once you get settled it goes very fast and is very fun!
Here's where I ended up after spending most of the day stitching after I got home:
Today I am off for more adventure. We are going to see Wicked, and I am so excited I can barely stand it! Stewey is pouting that I will not be able to tuck him in my pocket for the performance, but I promised to bring him the playbill to add to his collection.
Speaking of my little love, he had a check in with the vet on Friday, and it looks like he is doing as well as can be expected. He has lost two pounds, but I think we're managing to keep him pain free so far. He was absolutely wonderful with all of the techs that cared for him (he used to be rather fussy and had earned a bit of a reputation for being "high strung"), but yesterday he was so sweet that I started calling him Stewey Charming. He is snuggled in for a morning snoozy, so methink it will be a yood Sunday after all.
That's the report for the day, kids. I am going to enjoy my outing and then come home to do a little more stitching before getting ready for the week. Here's hoping that your weekend has been fun and peaceful and that your needles are flying!
