Not Much Stitching Time lately.....
Getting ready for the start of German School took up most of my time the past few weeks, so I didn't have much time to stitch. I survived my first day as principal this past Saturday, but just barely! When I was interim principal 5 years ago, it didn't seem this hard.....but then again I was 5 years younger...... Having my grandson as part of the student body also made me feel a bit old, but getting a hug from him and from other students did make my day better!
Sunday, I decided to just sit and stitch. Well, I tried, but got a frantic call from work and ended up going in to my regular job for a few hours. In spite of that adventure, I made some good progress on Natalie's birth sampler. This is the last of my Crazy January starts that isn't yet finished (the other 18 have been finished for quite some time). When I picked it up, only the letters had been stitched. This weekend I did the illuminated O, as well as all the other stars, moon, castle, top of the fairy's head and border. I must admit that I was reluctant to continue on this one because I was soooo sick of pink, but now that I am stitching with lots of other colors it is more fun!
