Sunday Splendor

It has been a very good Sunday. Was able to sleep in late, worked on my little patio garden, cooked a few meals to be frozen, and worked a few hours on the Dragon Knot.

Dragon Knot is going to be a project I will have to attack every single day in order to get it done in time! But I am going to try my best to do it! So here's the latest picture of progress. Unfortunately it is a dark picture. It doesn't really do it justice. I will take another picture soon as I make significant progress this week! I was not able to work on it last weekend as I was in Houston but I've worked on it as much as I could the past week afer work and this weekend.

Dragon Knot Update

So the plan for the weekend was to do some serious stitching. Didn't quite go that way. It seems that life decided that I needed to do other things. I did get in more than a few hours in though. And this is the end result after the weekend:
It was not the progress I wanted to see but I will live with it. I hope to have even more to show by the end of the week. Although I am not sure how much stitching time I will get in this week as I am so tired after packing and moving boxes at work all day. Plus this upcoming weekend I will be in Houston for a birthday party! But I am determined to have it finished very very very soon!

Happy Friday!

It was a very long day today at work. We are currently packing our offices as we are moving to a new site. It's not very far from the current office building, but since it is a new building, we are having to pack ALL of our stuff. It's been a long, tedious chore!

Anyway, because of one single event, it was a very happy day! My sailor called to let me know he was back safely on land. He's been off on one of his "business trips." He is on land till May when he will once again go on a trip but will return the day after my birthday. He has promised that he is going on leave shortly after that and will be spending the weekend after my birthday with me! So for once, in a very long time, I cannot wait for my birthday! But it will be bitter sweet as he will be leaving for 6 months in June. But now is not the time to think about that!

But now that I know when he is coming, I have to start really working on Dragon Knot. I want it completed and framed by then. I have a long way to go!

So my goal for the weekend is to do some serious stitching! Starting tonight! I want to make some significant progress so that I feel better about my progress! I plan on posting a new picture by Sunday evening! All other projects will be put aside until I complete this one!
I hope everyone has a good weekend!
