I want to thank you all for your kind comments on An Interview with a Dork. And for all the semi-hesitant volunteers. lol Since Barbara volunteered despite being already interviewed, what say we let her rest on her previous interview laurels?
As to what I've been up to, not much besides hacking and raising the price/share of Kleenix--- you're welcome if your a shareholder, you might get a short cruise out of my plague. I've been home in bed 8 of the last 14 days and I've stitched some on maybe two of those days. Mostly it's been napping and watching DVDs on the laptop. I had to resort to the laptop becuse the *@#(@&$&!@*( cable went out and my cable company (Time Idiocy Incorporated Warner) took a full week to get it fixed. Oh well, it's not like there's anything on anyway. I can give you the helpful hint that if you're home feeling miserable possibly the best plan of action isn't to watch the entire series of Painkiller Jane DVDs---- it's not like it was the world's most uplifting show. After maybe 4 hours I found myself wondering why I felt so depressed... welll duh!
Ok, so stitching. Before coming down with the plague (that's how I refer to all my illnesses, please do not freak) I started a new office project (that's what I leave in my desk drawer for when I forget to bring something to work on at lunch):
I'm going to do it on Summer Sky over-dyed jobelan instead of the hideous aida. So far I have gotten the black tip in on the feather to the left of the wolf's chin.
I also "had" to start:
And here's progress on that from more than a week ago --
I've gotten a significant bit more done, but then I got sick and he's been languishing.
I have recent progress to report on my Me, Myself, and I RR (I'm in community 2) -- I have settled on doing the LHN garden cottages. I'm doing them over-1 on an over-dyed green jobelan. I'd have a picture if I weren't lame/sick.
I'd also have pictures of my Taking the 5th and powwow shawl dancer needlepoint progress if I weren't sick/lame. Something for you to look forward too.
Oh, I have some LONG overdue pics of finishes:
This is a make-up square for Chris
As a surprise for her, before I sent it back to her I had our mutual buddy, Judy, stitch another of the available squares:
And here's Herbert -- my last office project:
More soon, maybe....... Remember, don't catch this bug!
