I am still not feeling 100% but I was able to get quite a bit of stitching done this weekend. Of course it helps that the design calls for a lot of half cross stitches in the background.There will be a rock in the lower right corner, a tree next to the keeper's house, steps going up to the house, blue sky with puffy clouds, and a sail on the little, red boat. Then comes the back stitching.
I'm hoping to have this piece finished, blocked, and framed by the end of the week. Then I can wrap it and stash it away until Holly's birthday. For those of you who follow me on Facebook, I will not be posting this until after her birthday, as she doesn't read this blog but checks Facebook daily. ;-)
FH and I went to see "Inglourious Basterds" today. It wasn't as gory as I had expected and was amusing. We had a nice time... until we came home and discovered the shelving in our coat closet had collapsed. Time to call the maintenance crew and let them mess with it.
After picking up all the coats, hats, and other winter errata I was too tired to do much else. Infections are less than pleasant. We did go up to our favorite bookstore and browsed for a bit. I worked on the lighthouse in the cafe. The only odd thing that happened there was some guy randomly started flirting with me. Apparently he didn't notice my wedding ring. When I told FH he said, "Eh. The man has good taste." ;-)
If things go well in the morning I should have a fun post up in the afternoon sometime. Failing that, there will be a fun post Tuesday.
