Senior Moments

Everyone has them.Mine just happen more often than most. Someone asked that I post a picture of what The Astronomer would look like when finished & I forgot when I posted yesterday. Oh well, better late than never. Here he is in all his glory.

Weekly Update on The Astronomer

I wish I could get these to line up across my post. This is frustrating. Oh,well this is my weekly progress on The Astronomer. I am so enjoying this that it will get another week in the rotation before I go back to the Rug. I also have another project kitted up & ready to go but will not start it until after another week on this & 2 weeks on the Rug. The new one is Quaker Halloween. The design is done in burgandy colors but to me that does not say Halloween so I am doing mine with orange (Lasagna) silks. This will be my first time using silks so can hardly wait to try them. Aren't they gorgeous?

It's that time of the month again so here is my Ort jar for this month. Pretty good progress  if I do say so myself.

The Astronomer

Okay I know I said I'd post pictures on Sunday but I have a good reason why I didn't. My daughter & son-in-law took Jim & I out to supper. We had a great time.
I started stitching on the Astronomer on Saturday  I have done about 500 stitches. I didn't get much stitching time on Sunday because I kept getting interrupted. I decided to  include a picture of my working chart to show how I keep my place without gridding.

Virtual Stitchin 2/6/10 Progress on Cottage Garden & Some Stash

I made alot of progress on this during the virtual stitchin. I didn't get my HAED started but I have the fabric fraychecked & all the colors for the first page on a ring. I'm a little uncomfortable starting in the upper left hand corner. I usually start in the lower left. My only complaint about the chart is there is no page layout included. Oh well, I will persevere. Need to go outside my comfort zone occasionally.
