What a Weekend and Updates.

Bob is still at deer camp.  He left on Thursday and will be home tomorrow.  
He better have taken a shower before I get home.  
The place looks like a Meth Lab.  There is no electricity.  I'm not sure there is running water.
I kind of think there isn't because his buddy brought water.
Just as long as I don't have to go there....ever! 
I stayed home and did my usual weekend stuff:  clean, laundry, ironing, grocery shopping, and bill paying.  I had dinner with my mom and stopped and saw my mother-in-law.  
I have been on the phone a lot.  
Katy has been having a crappy weekend so I called the her local Dominoes and sent her a Gluten-free pizza.  The weather was horrible:  pouring rain and she wasn't leaving her dorm.  
I have been working on some stitching in between all the activity and a nap today.
I have to fill in the background at the "M", stitch stems on the leaves, add the beads and the charms and it will be done.    
 The PSS Mary Sampler is caught up with the latest installment:  the cross and the crown.
One more week to go.  
 This is such a small piece. I think I have a small square frame. I plan on printing up the final installment of the second sampler on the darker fabric.

Speaking of frames, the only thing I didn't get to was taking an inventory of frames and sizes.  I move pieces in and out of frames.  It would be handy to have a list of the sizes and what goes in them.

A few more hours to stitch and then its back to work.  I am looking forward to the kids coming home for Thanksgiving.  Katy could use more than a couple of days off.  Since Thanksgiving is so late, winter break will only be a few weeks away.

Thank you for the great comments.  It makes blogging fun when you send me comments.
Hope you have a serene, productive week.  I hope I do.
Keep on Stitching


  1. Love your Thanksgiving piece! I haven't seen this one before. Very nice. Sounds like you had a very productive weekend.... happy stitching!

  2. Your stitching is wonderful. Is that a Heart in Hand design? My Mary's Sampler is up to date as well. I printed both each week but hadn't stitched the second one until week 5. Then I stitched it up to that point ad have done both for the last 2 weeks. I like camping but not that rustic by the sounds of the cabin! Enjoy your week!

  3. The Thanksgiving stitch is beautiful!

  4. The stitching is looking lovely. I too finally caught up with Mary's sampler. I really enjoyed this stitch.


  5. You had a very productive weekend, Monica! Both your WIPs are looking super!

    Have a fabulous week!

  6. I'm with you when it comes to commenting - I love comments, it's half of the fun of the whole blogging thing.
    You had a very busy weekend, but you made nice progress on your WIPs. I'm also very curious to see the last part of the PSS sampler.

  7. Lovely stitching pieces!
