I did stitch a little this past week. Not as much as I expected, though, as the weather was unusually warm for February and I wanted to worship the sun as much as possible. Such a treat in the middle of the winter.
Here are the 2 pieces I worked on. I got hung up on this one, again. This time I ran out of the green for the grass. Also, the contrast between the white horse and the one behind it wasn't working so I picked that out and restitched it last night. That's 2 more strikes against this piece and the conversion chart. I used the entire skein of Poblono Pepper plus all that I had in my stash. There should have been 2 skeins of that and Blackbird. I don't waste thread, either. This piece is going into time out for a while. It's caused me more grief then it's worth right now.
A word or two on catching up. I went away without my computer so the unread emails and blog posts are over whelming. It's going to be a while. The piles of mail and paperwork on my desk when I returned were massive. Colleges, taxes, kids..... there's no Paperwork Reduction Act in my life. (And, I haven't even been to work yet. That's tomorrow's hill to climb.)
