More progress

Here is this weeks progress on Cottage Garden Rug. I am really enjoying working on this. I also have pictures of one of my other WIP'S. It is Hyacinth Macaws which I am stitching as a wedding sampler for my nephew & his new wife. They are big bird lovers(they have a parrot) & since Hyacinth Macaws mate for life I thought it would be appropriate.
Since I have long weekend I plan on trying to find all the parts to a couple of other UFO's so I can get my rotation going finally.
Since I have heart & lung issues I have plenty of time to stitch after I get home from work & on weekends. I can't do much in the way of housework which is okay with me. I have a house husband(DH is retired) & my son still lives at home so they take care of most everything except the cooking. That is something I love to do & since it doesn't require any heavy lifting or strenuous activity I can still do it.
I finally was able to order my Dazor lamp with maginifier. I have an Ott light with magnifier but it is awkward to  use. I use the Dazor when I go to my LNS for stitch group & it is much easier. It will be my big Xmas gift this year.

I also couldn't resist posting a picure of my stitching buddy Brandi. She usually lays on the couch next to me when I'm stitch. She keeps my hip warm LOL.


  1. The Macaws are just beautiful!
