An Open Heart SAL Day #2... plus more :-)

Today was SAL day for An Open Heart, and while I am not exactly moving along at the speed of light with this one, I think I did pretty well for the amount of time that I gave it. I was working on this one while constantly flicking between the Red Sox game, NASCAR race, and even the Patriots game. Oh, and doing laundry too! I wonder how Karen and Tannia are doing with theirs this week...
...And after dinner, I went back to work on Earth Angel for awhile. I find working on the flowers under the angel to be the most tedious part of her :-) I have a bit more green and purple to add in to the flowers tomorrow, and then it is just ribbons and some beads left :-)

Great day for sports (for me, that is!!): Red Sox 9, Orioles 3...Ryan Newman came in 5th at Dover, and is still 3rd in points, and Patriots 23, Steelers 20... all is happy tonight.

Stitched on today: Earth Angel and An Open Heart

This piece has such pretty pastel colors in it. I love it!! Glad the O's could help Boston out in their pursuit of the Yanks:)
