A quick half hour or so and this 2.5″ stack of charms was printed with Drunkard’s Path shapes. They are so amazingly quick to stitch that I’m hoping to have at least 25 or 30 blocks done today. Maybe even more.
My stitching kit has scissors to cut the shapes, thread snips, needles, my thimble and two colours of thread. Must remember to toss in a finger pincushion as well — as I cannot stand stitching without it.
It has been a long time since I’ve worked on these, but this is a sample of the blocks I’ve made so far.
By the time this posts (I’m writing it Tuesday evening), we’ll be on our way to the hospital. We have to be there by 6:30. 6:30??? We’re night owls in the Q.O. household, so 6:30 sounds almost like the middle of the night. However, a friend assures me there are many people up and about at 6:30 a.m. (this I have to see!) and that they’re even coherent at that hour. All I’m hoping is that the Tim Horton’s shops in the hospital lobby are open and I can get some coffee when we get there.
I’ll throw my eReader in the bag in the
middle of the night morning when we get up so that if the lighting really is not conducive to stitching I can at least read. I should point out that at that hour it will take us less than 10 minutes to get to the hospital, so we likely won’t even leave here until about 6:10 or so. That’s a strange hour for a night owl. Very very strange. However, there is a good side to this ridiculously early hour and that is that he’ll likely be ready to come home sometime in the afternoon.
I must remember to leave the television on for the kitties — it’s going to be a long day for them. Hopefully they just have a nice calm relaxing day and Smudge is like this when we get home.
While Lester is stretched out like this.
