Whoohoo! I got to work on one of the cards tonight. It was nice to sit and stitch for a while. I had errands to run after work, but made it home early enough to still be able to get some stitching time in. The piece is starting to take shape. The colors are very Mary Englebreit. It felt so good to be working on something creative.
I am preparing for another busy weekend. I have a lot on my calendar, and yet I hope there will be some time to work on a small piece. I am also hoping to get in a hike or walk with Liesl, and some serious cuddle time with her.
I am going to be taking a staycation in late February. I am pretty excited about it. I am hoping to get a bit of rest, do some hiking, dinners with my wonderful friends, and reading of really good books. Of course, the top item on the agenda is cross stitching. I am even okay with it if it rains. I still have a gift certificate for the local quilt shop burning a hole in my pocket, so I may even do a small quilt or even take a class. Knowing that I have nine days straight to play is pretty exciting. The 23rd is my birthday and falls during my vacation, so Liesl and I will have to find a way to celebrate. This is going to be an amazing year!
