Back to Spring Ride SAL


It's been about five weeks since I last picked up Spring Ride, and I wanted my SAL partner, Karen, to know that I am still in it with her :-) I have been taking a little break from it to let her catch up a bit, as well as because it is not as fun to work on this without my Ott-Lite. All of this white and/or near white on opalescent white belfast linen is do-able, but a little bit of a strain on my 45 year old eyes. I did a little tonight before I put it down. I didn't want to end up needing an Excedrin Migraine tablet - LOL. Only kidding about the tablet :-)

Speaking of my Ott-Lite, I think I mentioned that DH bought me a new one... according to the shipper's website, it still won't be here until around September 4th...

PS - spent the morning at the hospital, and my beloved family member is doing quite well and starting OT on Tuesday :-) Thank you for all of your well wishes and prayers... they have helped.

Stitched on today: Stitched on Spring Ride, and on SBEBB Shepherd's Bush Exchange
