Monday, when we got home, I played with Oscar for a while and then went to bed. I slept most of the day. Then Tuesday, I got up, thinking I was back to feeling normal but ran out of steam and then took about a 2 hour nap. Got up, fixed dinner, then went back to bed and slept for 3 hours. I did have a bit of a hard time getting to sleep Tuesday night but it was only because I had slept so much during the day.
Yesterday, I stayed awake the whole day. Yay!
Last night I finished Day 1 of the 12 days of Christmas. First finish of 2023.
There’s one little spot on Santa’s face, about 6 stitches, where I’m missing the floss color so, instead of putting him up on the “finished stitching” wall, I’m keeping him in the bag. I’ll get the needed color before I start stitching #2.
Another thing . . the chart shows a straight stitched border around each of these pieces. I’m thinking I’m going to leave those off because the straight lines make it so obvious if the pieces aren’t exactly straight when finished. I’m not sure how I’m going to finish these so, if when it’s time to finish them, I feel like I need the outline stitched border, I can do that pretty quickly.
Denise and I are stitching this series of 12 projects together and our goal is one piece done every two months. She’s already finished #2 and we’re not even halfway finished with January yet. I’m guessing she’ll have all 12 done before Christmas. She’s fast!
Today I’m going to get back on Three Things Sampler. That’s one I have a hard time putting down once I start stitching on it.
