Today I packed Procrastination's bags and showed her the door. I told her it was time for her to enjoy a vacation and I would be fine while she was gone. I don't think she believed me but she went, slowly dragging her suitcase and casting looks back to see if I had changed my mind.
I finally got the rough draft of my grandson's cross stitch Birth sampler done today. It is very rough but is close enough that I can get my fabric and colors together and start stitching. I have been trying to get to this point since his birth in February. Now I wonder how long it will take to actually do the sampler??? The whale pattern was ordered from Etsy at www.sewingseed.com. The shells, starfish and nautilus are from a chart entitled God's Love by Ursula Michael. Eli's room is decorated in a whale theme with sea creatures here and there. The chart has passed inspection by my daughter-in-law so forward I shall go.
I realize this isn't a very good picture but it's hard to photograph pencil lines. I hope you can get the feel of it though. There will be much counting and adjusting placement but I am pleased with it and I hope it will make a cute addition to his room. There will be plenty of progress pictures and of course, a TA-DA.
I also added a couple of rows to Jellybean's blanket today. But all that lining and drawing and erasing and counting really made my right hand unhappy, so not much was accomplished. But I did do something on it so I kept Procrastination away.
I hope your weekend has been what you wanted it to be. As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day wherever you might be.
