Where did the month go?
Now that I'm grown, I understand my Dad's need to get away from the stress of the world, but more importantly I miss those vacation and the time I spent with my siblings. My sisters became my best friends and my brother brought out the tom-boy in me. I learned to climb trees, play baseball, football and hide-n-seek.
The two pictures are my attempts at starting on my dragon. This is the beginning of the neck - not sure I like the stitch, not the look I was hoping for when I started. I think I'll take it out and try again. I have a another small section that I started, but like that even less, so it too will be taken out and re-started. You can see the scales outlined on the part above, I think I need to figure a stitch that will be closer to the scales...
I'm so looking forward to this weekend, my goal is to get at least one quilt top finished up and possibly two. Sometimes I think I'm further along that I really am, so need to pull it all out and see where I am. Also want to get more of the green done on my lady and if all goes well, the face on Lizzy completed. Lots of big plans for the week, lets hope I get something done. I might get dressed Saturday morning to walk down to the local grocery store and Starbucks, but I think the rest of the weekend will be PJ's and pizza :)
Hope you all have a great weekend and are able to celebrate Labor Day by doing a labor of love, like stitching, quilting or knitting :)
