Singular Stitches: On the home stretch

On the home stretch

...for a few things, really.

I've been MIA on the blog front recently, and will probably post rather infrequently until after my Statistics final on December 12th. Please send good thoughts!

Over Thanksgiving Holiday, I just couldn't wait any longer and restarted Fairy Flora on 32ct linen (I had originally used 28ct). I like the smaller count a lot better!

This is the top of the skirt on her dress, just below the waistline.

I'm also about .01% from being done with the Mom scarf! MIL's birthday is in a few days, so we decided to send it to her for her birthday so that she could wear it to Christmas church services, rather than just opening it on Christmas.

And, in other news, on Friday, we had a strong cold front blow through with lots of wind and found the top of one of our trees no longer on the top of the tree. The top was dead, so we were planning to get the top cut off anyway, so we just got it done earlier and for free.

For perspective, our deck is 18 feet across. Thankfully, it just missed the corner of the deck and did no damage. (Although I'm sure the thump it made sent the kitties scrambling under the couch in the Ladies Parlour!)

Good luck with your statistics final!

Good luck with your final! We have trees all around our house and thankfully none have decided to fall our way (although we've had several near misses!)

I'm taking Statistics also. In fact, I am sitting in class right now! My final is on the 18th though. i'm not too worried though because this class has been rather easy. Anyway good luck on your final.

Wow! I'm so glad the tree limbs didn't do any damage. My car spent time in the body shop last spring from a branch that was blown down. I always get nervous now when the wind gets to blowing. :D

Thank goodness the tree top did no damage. Have fun with your fairy. Happy Holidays, CJ
