Hi all! Where has the week gone? Oh yeah, I was in Des Moines, Iowa for work all of last week, then came back and went up north to my in-law's cabin for the weekend, went to a stitching shop (I totally didn't take a picture of my haul, I'll do that for next week!) & met some friends, then came back for my husband's birthday and went to a local farm for dinner. Then this week I've had two job interviews (phone ones, but still). BUSY. I love it, but hate it at the same time. When to do laundry?! Or more importantly, stitch?!?!
Here's some of the scenery up north:
and our view for lunch:
I'm very lucky to live in such a beautiful state. These were taken on the Allegheny River, the dam is Kinzua Dam.
Another thing that put a damper in my cross stitch time was that EA Games released the Sims 2 Ultimate Edition for FREE on Origin. Needless to say, that sucked me back in. Why are all of my hobbies so time consuming?! I may or may not have been up playing Sims 2 until midnight on a work night.
Anyways, here's what I've been working on.
Chatelaine, I managed to do some of the backstitching. I love this piece, but I have so many things going on that it's never a priority.
I also worked on my Jolly Jack:
I also just remembered I promised to show what I was stitching at the airport:
I forgot to edit this picture, and it's a little blurry. Sorry!
Does anyone else have other time consuming hobbies other than stitching?!
