I am off by one thread in the cream satin stitch row below the beginning of the verse... I have no idea where this went awry.... but my OCD won't allow it to stay that way, and next week when it is time to stitch on this sampler again, I will pull that row out and re-do it. Hopefully that will fix it :-) I still have no real idea how I am doing in this SAL as compared to Karen and Tannia... Karen wrote that hers is going well, but no pics to share.... Tannia emailed that she has had an unexpected houseguest, but no update on the sampler. I do still feel like I am in this one all by myself, so whatever pace I choose, is working for me anyhow....
Here is how my mermaids looked after I went to bed in the wee hours of the AM....I wanted to get some of her tail done and see how it is fitting on the fabric. I never realized how HUGE this project really is! The mermaids really take up a fat quarter of cashel linen! I think I put this down at 2:30 AM.... stayed up watching "Fools Rush In" until 3 AM.... I think this explains today's low energy :-)
Ryan Newman is now third in the points standing! No great showing for him today (10th in the race), but he stayed out of trouble, and benefitted pretty well from Greg Biffle having troubles.... only four more races to go!
Back to work tomorrow.... but a decent week.... I work Monday and Tuesday, then off to "therapy school" (aka a conference) on Wednesday, work half a day Thursday and have Friday off :-)
Stitched on today: An Open Heart and Mermaid Heaven (early AM hours)
