Northwind SAL Week 6!

Could someone please explain how we have been stitching this piece for 
six weeks? 
It seems like I started it yesterday! 
There is no way that many weeks have passed!


I can stitch again not long but,
 I've got a needle in my hand. 
And this is all thanks to my sister who is soon to be an RN.
 Two more classes! 
I was having fits with all the bandages
 they had left on me. 
My hand was itching like mad and I couldn't handle another week in 
those same stinky old wraps. 
Keri to the rescue!
 I called and she came over as I unwrapped it - 
she saw what I had and went for new stuff. 
She came back and cleaned up the uck and 
gave me two band-aids.
 I now can make my index finger and thumb touch. 
Not serious amounts of stitching but progress!


Onward to our progress for the week ~

Angela has found her wings and flew this week! More than half done - way to go!

My poor Rose - had another busy week and didn't get to stitch much. Her mojo has wondered off somewhere and hopefully, the cool weather will bring it back.

Now Shari, of the holy smokes it's fall, was busy also. She made bread, pie, caramel corn, and ice cream along with her normal meals this week. I say let's all go visit - don't forget your fork and spoon!

And that brings up my progress - get the magnifying glass! Look closely to the left side of the barn and see a bit more grass - that's all I got done folks.

This week I would like to finish up the snowflakes, finish the lettering, add the weather vane, finish up those barn doors, and work on some grass. The hand will tell me later if I made too big of a list.

I'm off to call the eye doctor and see if the boy made it to his appointment.

Everyone is really moving along on the SAL. I'm sure Rose will find her mojo when she least expects to! Glad DS could make your hand comfortable again; they do tend to overdo (at least by stitcher's standards) when they're closing up after a surgical procedure. You're right - your to-do list is pretty long, so don't overdo!
