Exhausted


I had really hoped to get a bit done on the bottom section of Acorn Sampler today. However, I am just wiped out. We had a family BBQ for Mike's birthday (which is officially tomorrow) today. But, I did do a little. I might take a few minutes still tonight to work on my Christmas in July Exchange project... little x's might be easier right now ;-)

Lily is exhausted too. I just took this photo of her sleeping atop a chest of plastic drawers next to my stitching chair... one of her favorite places (actually, almost all of my cats nap here from time to time)...

Stitched on today: Stitched on Acorn Sampler, and stitched on Christmas in July Exchange project

Lily does look wiped out! I know Daisy always sleeps behind me when I stitch!

Happy Birthday Mike! I think the cats like to sleep there so they can watch your progress on what your stitching.

Nice progress on Acorn. Backstitch like that needs such detail counting and paying attention, after a busy day like you had I think you got quite a bit done. Lily looks very comfy, my cats like to curl up near me as well, and on top of some of my stitching stuff seems to be a favorite place.

I hope the exhaustion improves for you Carol. Once every couple of weeks I feel this way and just have a quiet day or two to recharge the batteries.

Lily's sweet to keep you company while you stitch. :) Don't worry, I'm sure you'll finish Acorn Sampler soon enough.
