Anyway, not as much stitching as I thought this week, I worked from home for the majority of the week and the thought of not having a 5 hour round trip commute and all the stitching time in the evenings was heavenly BUT it seems that my mind can no longer handle more than an hour free time in the evenings and I could not really settle myself down to do much stitching.
I worked on Papillon Creations' Eightsome Reel. I started this one as a commute piece but had major issues with stitching in hand on a piece this size and I really do not like the thread I'm using an HDF conversion and while I know lots of people just love these fibers, I am having a really difficult time with them.
Here's where I was the beginning of the week:
And here's where I stopped last night:

I'm planning to start a Mill Hill Button and Beads kit from 2006 today. I'm going to stitch six of these side-by-side on one piece of fabric. I'm rather excited to see how my village looks when it's done.
Carriage House Samplings Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow will be pulled out tomorrow or Sunday for its round of stitching.
