SAL Update

We’ll it’s a good thing I had this today or no stitching would have taken place! Truth be told, I have mainly been knitting the past few weeks because I have just gone back to work and it’s busy and stressful so by the time I get home at night, I don’t feel like I have the energy to stitch, whereas I can knit in a circle on a sock.

I am happy to say though that I am up to date on my temperature tree by Stitchin Mommy. I should say though that the colour key I am using is off an online resource as hers didn’t really suit our west coast temperatures.

Sorry for the not great photo- it is so sunny in here today it is hard to find a spot without shadows. I will be oh so glad to see the start of cooler weather!

I am still working on my beatings piece for my dad and I have my next door pattern as well. However, I was going to ask for this group’s help. My colleague is retiring in June and getting married in July and I figured those were two big enough events to warrant some stitching. My thought is that I can stitch something and the staff can pay for framing as her retirement present. She loves reading, flowers, birds and cats and she is hoping to buy a hobby farm after she retires. Does anyone have a suggestion for a pattern that could be done in 8 months???

It is our first rainy day in about seven weeks and I am loving it!!!

I went for a walk with friends and didn’t melt!

I didn’t look funny drinking hot tea!

I got to bake my sourdough bread in the middle of the day!

I went and got ice cream and didn’t have to wait in a line up!

I have been knitting, cross stitching and watching podcasts and don’t have to feel guilty!

Rain makes for a great day in my book!
