There has been some stitching accomplished this week. Thought I would share because -- well, it's Friday. And I didn't name the post Friday Progress!

I made a serious dent in the blue field! Once I got the side and top about half done - the center REALLY took off. As you can see I still have 7 blue stars and 49 white ones to go. I put a touch of the red in to see how it looked. I've been thinking - although it's not called for - what do you think of a single white Mill Hill seed bead in the center of each star?
Otherwise this week - I've been doing well. Stayed busy and stitched. Only one day did a have a few bad hours. Today is Dad's birthday. I've been singing Happy Birthday to him off and on. The first couple of times I added "and many more" to the end like always. That caused a few moments of sadness. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during the last 2 months. I've felt your love and appreciate it. You've all helped me through a tough time.
I did get some GREAT news this week! The boy sent his ACT scores to Kent State and OSU fourteen months ago in preparation for PSEO*. OSU sent us an invitation to come down in April and tour the campus. Nice way to spend a day - ok. He read off the dates - April 1st, 22nd, and 23rd. But, if you go on the 23rd - you get free tickets to the Scarlet and Gray game. We looked at each other and both said - the 23rd! He registered for the tour and I'm going to the game! Hehehehe. Cross that off the ole bucket list!
I would like to say hello to two new followers! One is an English major and I fear I might send her into convulsions with my liberal use of commas, dashes, and explanation points. At least I use spell check!
Ok everyone - off to the weekend. May there be stitching in your future!
