Of course... the weekend just didn't work out the way "I" had planned it out!
I did get a great picture for the Photo Hunt. (Thanks everyone for your comments on that!)
I had informed everyone in the house that it was the Christmas Ornament SAL this weekend, and I would be plopped in my chair stitching!! Did it happen?? NO! I didn't even put stitching needle to stitching fabric until Monday!! And, why is she emphasizing "stitching" needle and fabric?? Because I did put needle and thread to fabric!! Just not in the way I had envisioned!
DD Becca informed me on Friday that she wanted to go to the Winterfest dance on Saturday. Of course, our stipulation was only if you are feeling much better!! (She has been having this 'bug-sinus' thing going on.) Well... as you can imagine, she felt much better on Saturday. When I got home from work, she informed me that she had nothing to wear to the dance. Would I please finish the dress I had started last year, and didn't finish when she didn't go? WHAT? Well... she's my little girl, what could I do? Yes, I finished the dress. All the hand sewing needed to be finished... tacking of the lining around the zipper, tacking the facing down, adding a hook and eye to the top of the zipper, adding the button, and hemming the lining and the dress! All of it was hand stitching, except I did hem the lining on the machine. Here is a picture of my DD in her 'Winterfest' dress:
I'm whipped by this time... so, no stitching on Saturday!
Sunday... Okay... I can stitch the afternoon away on an ornament! Nope... DD's friend needs her formal (for the Women's Ensemble) shortened for the HS Choir Concert on Wednesday -- Fine... I shorten the formal. Not too bad, it's a knit, and I can just mark it, and hem it on the machine.
Son and girlfriend come over after dinner. They have had their picture taken together, and did I want any? Of course!!! When they left, I just decided I would not even try to stitch! I would be sure to mess it up!
I did get my stitching in yesterday... even if DH did take the day off, and we seemed to be running all day! I was able to get my stitching in on the LK 12 Blessings of Christmas. Here is where I am at as of Monday night:
I also managed to 'finish' the LHN Peaches. Here are some photos of the front, and back...
I guess that's it for today... I'm going to work on an ornament... and some exchange pieces, and whatever else I feel like!
Thanks for reading and your comments...
