Happy Weekend!

Ok, I only have a few minutes, but I had to drop in and wish you all a beautiful weekend. And ask you to think positive thoughts for me this weekend for 2 reasons:

1. I have named this Finishing Weekend. I WILL (!!!!) accomplish a significant amount of finishing because I want to mail some stuff out next week. I WILL finish. I W-I-L-L!!!!! Anyone who cares to can join me. Feel free to show me up while you're at it too. lol

2. I am allegedly getting digital cable installed this weekend. I say "allegedly" because I know my cable company. I need the positive thoughts not for them, but for my cleaning efforts in advance of their arrival. For them to get to the TV I have to clear away all my stash! And all he clutter that has gotten swept up in the stash. Argh. Like I said, I need the positive energy!

I still owe you updates form last weekend's stitching efforts. I was good! I got a whole afternoon of work on my Zuni bear needlepoint:

Yeah, I know, you can't see anything on that but----
What I really accomplished was a lot of staring at it and then I mostly completed the vertical panel on his stomach

I also did some "labeling" on my 5th needlepoint:

And this week I completed F&S round 13, but since it is not sent, it can't be received, therefore you can't see the squares yet. Sorry!

ttfn---- have a great weekend!

By the way, I saw this sign last week while I was out and about -- tell me they weren't targeting me!!!

Hi Ruth,

Great progress on the Zuni Bear!
What stitch are you using?

LOL at the 5th and the sign. :-)

Good luck with the cable installation. I know about trying to get cleaned up. Needlework is all over the dining room as I am in the throes of another cycle of reorganizing/ I have to have it all organized or at least cleared off for a meeting Monday night. Sigh...

I've made more progress on my 1st Day of Christmas JB Nutcracker. I hope to put up a new picture next week. That is if it stops raining around here so I can get a decent picture! :-)

Nice progress on your needlepoint projects.
Cleaning up all the stash is always a major task here too. Whenever I'm looking for something or kitting up something everything is pulled out and scattered all over the place. If only I could change this procedure - or find someone who puts everything back in place, lol.

I love the colors on your Zuni Bear project! I have been known to do quite a bit more staring than stitching sometimes, so I can totally relate to that :)

Hope your finishing and cable installation all goes well.
