The week's progress

My week's progress. I haven't had a lot of time to work on it.  On top of getting ready for the party, I was pushing myself to work 40 hours of OT last pay period. And that took up A LOT of time. I didn't make it, though, only got to 34, and I was exhausted. But I've been trying to do a little more since Sunday--been watching Ladies of London on Ondemand and stitching. The stop and starts are starting to kill me, I can't start and finish like I normally do, not when there are patches of two stitches.  But I love the colors. The hot red of the strawberries against the green is the epitome of early summer, so I soldier on.

The colors of your stitching are perfect summer colors! Keep on stitching!
Whew! 40 hours of OT on top of a normal 40 hour week? No wonder you're exhausted.

This piece is great, Rachel. The colors are fabulous. And who needs sleep, anyway?

I think all the stops and starts are worth it because this is already looking so pretty!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
