It has definitely been an up and down week, unfortunately, the down is the most recent part (another car repair - this one more expensive than the last - believe me, it was a surprise when the power steering stopped working!!) so it is definitely coloring how I'm seeing everything right now. I'm working on adjusting my attitude I found TimTams at the store tonight and hope to be in better spirits soon or at least before I eat the whole package and feel more miserable!!!
Thank you all for the kind comments on my finish. I have it pinned to my design door I would take a picture but the battery in the camera is dead! I swear the thing turns on at night as it runs through batteries faster than anything I've ever used!! so I can see it and dream of actually getting it framed someday. They spliced the cable line into the main line today and The Hubs has been on the phone trying to get an appointment for them to come run the line to the house we live about 1/4 mile off the road, so getting the majority of the line run by the cable company was a HUGE plus, we only have to deal with a few hundred feet now. Jo, I had to smile at your description of your cable - fortunately, ours is buried, at least the bit running up our drive so pigeons should not be a problem - now the moles might be another story!
We had a fairly nice day on the water today I don't know if I ever mentioned that we own a boat - well the bank owns it and they kindly let us use it each month for a fee - I really need to take my camera and get some pictures - it got very choppy around noon, so we didn't stay as long as we had planned nor did we catch any fish, but it was nice being outside.
No stitching during the week, but I did get a fair amount done last weekend. First up, I'm sure to nobody's surprise, is Hawaiian Mandala:
Next is a new start Twilight of the Tsar by Dimple Designs
Wrapping, baking and card making are on the agenda for this weekend. I hope to get some stitching time in there too.
