Singular Stitches: Busy, busy, busy!!!

Busy, busy, busy!!!

I know, it's been really quiet over here on my blog. Not that I have a really exciting life, like climbing Mt. Everest, visiting with the Dali Lama, or hopping on DH's jet and having dinner in Paris. OK, so that was the week before. I meant last week. LOL!

Anyways, (back to reality - heh, heh) my job is cyclicly (is that even a word??) busy, based on our company's fiscal periods. So, contrary to popular rumor, I was really busy at work last week and this week, and I'm going out of town all next week to attend a training class, so not only do I have my normal busy stuff, but also the stuff that I'd be doing next week, too.

I'm sure that most readers of my blog can relate, I have to decide what to wear, what to pack, what to carry on, and most importantly, what stitching will be travelling with me.

And, the fight between Winter and Spring has begun with my sinuses as the victims.

All the above means that my stitching has been haphazard, when I had time and when I actually felt like it.

I did a little on the left gold diamond border on the Harvest Sampler. Unfortunately, I realized that in about the middle of what I had completed, I was off by one stitch, I had to rip and redo. Two steps forward, two steps back...

I also did a very little on Snapperville. I worked on the picture in the third block from the left.

Knitting was a bit easier for me to do, so I actually did more knitting than cross stitch.
- In the top left is a new sock I've started to take on my trip with me.
- I've almost completed the 4th motif on the Snowball's Chance in Hell armwarmers.
- I started a scarf because it was totally mindless - and notice, it's the scarf that I've made the most progress with!

I think we all get too busy to really craft sometimes. Your knitting has been going well, though! :) I hope that next week won't be too hectic for you with the training. Safe journey!
