Not a very exciting week here - work was unnervingly quiet normally I like quiet but given the weird, craziness that we've been living through, quiet is scary. I ran over to King's Dominion on Friday we only live about 6 miles away so we have season tickets and rode Twisted Timbers their new roller coaster. It is a wooden coaster with steel tracks. It was a good ride, lots of air time, but other than looking like a wooden coaster it didn't have the feel of a wooden coaster - it was too quiet. I'll definitely ride it again, but prefer the two wooden ones.
The rest of the weekend was stitching - or should have been - I did the usual "oh I can do XXXX because I have two whole days for stitching so a few hours won't matter" and frittered away a lot of the weekend. I had a small start on Just Nan's Pearl Orchid
This is stitched on 28 count Cameo Rose Cashel with DMC. The fabric, pattern, beads and a length of overdyed silk came in a "Pattern Pack" so I just had to pull the DMC. I'll hold my opinion on the fabric until I've finished the stitching, but as of right now, I would not have picked it as the light pink thread (DMC 225) is getting lost.
I spent the majority of my stitching time this weekend working on Chatelaine's Japanese Zen Garden. It went from here:
