So Close....To A Finish

I'm here and have been working away.  Just not so good at keeping you updated.  I'm sorry.

Week before last I went back to my rotation plan and worked on the Santa Nutcracker.  Here's a before picture:

And an after picture:

Then last week I worked on the Nativity.  Here's a before picture:

And the after picture:

I was so close to a finish!  Just the roof to complete.  I was tempted to stay up late...who needs sleep, right?  Actually, I do.  If I stay up without sleep, it usually triggers a migraine.  Oh well, at least next time I know I'll have a finish.  But I'm still a little disappointed.

This week I'm back at work on the HAED Kites.  Here is where I left off last time.

Not sure how much time I'll have to stitch this week, but we'll see.....

There was also a question about my son's school plan next year.  I remember way back when I was in high school we had some "electives" we could choose from.  Most of the girls did home economics.  I remember also choosing typing and accounting.  We still had to take the usual Math, Science, English and History but we had some added classes we could choose.  They still do that same thing but they have made some changes to the process.  They ask the students if they know what they want to do (yeah, right!) and try to choose a plan for them that will be of benefit to them.  Since my son is very interested in the military he will take his usual classes Math, Science, English and History but also pick up the ROTC classes.  He'll learn more about the military, learn some drills, compete with other schools and hopefully decide if this really is what he wants to do after he graduates from high school.  I'm a little nervous about the whole thing but trying to be supportive of him also. 

Happy Stitching!


  1. You're making nice progress on all of your pieces! I'm sure your son's ROTC training classes will teach him many useful things--best of luck to him :)

  2. Great stitching progress! Did you finish the roof yet?
