I managed to get a few things done this past week but not much. I was out and about Tuesday through Friday! That is very unusual for me and for some reason if I go out in the morning and come home, I can't seem to muster up any energy to do much the rest of the day. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday all had to do with my Tahoe but it is finely tuned and ready for another 20 years....I hope! I just need to get it detailed now. Friday was Walmart so...I was bushed after all that running around.
Yesterday was the first day all week that I got to stay home and it was a good one as it was rainy which made for a cozy day inside. I did some laundry, made cookies and in the afternoon I got my BOM #3 finished....tada! I've already received blocks 5 and 6 so I had better get busy! Today I am hoping to get block #4 cut out.
I did work on my sock and finished the cuff and have about an inch of the leg done....
My focus XS piece this week was my tribute to my son. He died in July of 2019....it will be 4 years on July 24th. I'd tried picking this up several times to work on it but I just couldn't handle it but I think I can this time. The only problem I have with this is the part where it states "I will not shed a tear or be sad"....huh? Are you kidding me? I have shed plenty of tears and been plenty sad so I'm not sure what she was thinking when she wrote that. She designed this piece to commemorate the death of her mother. Time does heal all wounds but some things you never get over. I don't dwell on it and I know Jim would want me to be happy and I am. I'm going to have to do something with the hair on the woman....I need to make a grey topknot for her hair! LOL!
I know I showed you this bag last week but this week it has something inside it.....the very first Christmas project for 2023! Yes, ornaments or Halloween and Christmas, Advent gifts and Christmas gifts are not all going to be making an appearance but know that there are things being worked on!
Speaking of ornaments....I ordered Lori Holt's box that holds her stitch cards and index cards. It was on sale otherwise I would not have purchased it....I think her stuff is a little too pricey compared to others.
I also ordered her Set F stitch cards which are Halloween.....
I also ordered a covered button set, some hardware for zipper pulls on bags, and material for making the above ornaments.
So, for this coming week, I hope to get more done since I have no where I need to go unless it would be to Tractor Supply for flowers and bird stuff........oh yeah!
Otherwise, I hope to finish BOM #4, work on hexies, XS, and sock #2.
I had one of my favorite birds stop by....a mourning dove.........I always thought they were "morning" doves.....lol!
Have a great week!
