Monday

I finished up 'Scottish Alexandria' a few days ago. I have been making myself work on 'Adam Alone' by Sheepish Designs. I love it, but I have done the easy bits, and now only the hard bits are left.
As a special treat for stitching Adam's one-over-one, I started 'Canterbury Tapestry' by Barrick/Carriage House Samplings. It is teeny-tiny on 40 count!


I don't know how much stitching time I will have this week - Tuesday is the annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, Wednesday is the Ash Wednesday service, and Thursday is a homeschool outing to a ballet performance. In between, I will be cleaning, teaching, taxi-ing, and planning lessons and Lenten meals. I'm tired just thinking about that! I think I need a cup of tea and just one more pre-Lent butterscotch blondie!

A very lovely finish! I also stitch on a Sampler Girl piece at the moment, but only a smallish one.
Great new start!
