Progress Made Plus Another Finish!
While watching the Super Bowl tonight (actually, I stitch and listen) I finished up another small Hardanger doily. This smaller design was a snap to stitch; although I started it last month and just finished it tonight (other projects got in the way!) The design is from Satin Stitches by Donna M. Olson and is from the Time for Tea - Jasmine chartpak. I used a pale pink Hardanger fabric and a soft pink pearl cotton thread from Needle Necessities.
I also made progress this weekend on DT Game Board Sampler. I had some catching up to do - my goal is to stitch two squares per week. Last Sunday I didn't stitch on it at all. So last night I completed five additional squares (so I'm now one square ahead!) Bine and I have been working together on this one. I might finally be catching up to her!
This past week was a very difficult week for me. My last living aunt passed away yesterday after spending the week in the hospital. I was very fortunate to have spent time with her this past week in the hospital, particularly four precious hours on Friday night. She was very special to me and while I know that it is a blessing that she no longer endures any pain or suffering, it's very difficult for me to let go. We particularly missed her today - she was a huge football fan and would have come tonight to watch and celebrate the Super Bowl with us. Auntie Florence - I will never forget you!
