End of week update

I've been working quite steadlily on Dragon Knot this past week.  I love when I can get on a roll with a project.  Seeing more progress makes me want to work on the project more and more.

This was last week's update:



After working on it for a week:

Life Update
I've got another full week ahead of me at work.  I am two weeks out from my convention.  We are still down an employee.  More overtime up ahead for me this week.  Just thinking about it is exhausting.  This weekend was entirely too long and too short.  Too long because I'm still struggling with a heavy heart and looking for a little direction in life and too short because I don't want to go back to work (ok, I'm sure very few people want to go back to work!). I find it so frustrating to know what I want but no clue on how to get it!!!  Especially when other people are involved!  Learning that I can't control others has been one that has taken a long time to learn!!!

It was an extremely cold weekend which lent itself to a perfect time to stitch.  I spent a majority of Saturday snuggled on the couch with Duke stitching away on Dragon Knot. Sunday I was able to spend a little bit of time stitching but not as much as Saturday.  I attended a babyshower for an old family friend.  It was nice to see childhood friends from the old neighborhood.  We so rarely see each other except at life events like this. 

Well I am off to finish laundry for the week and put some more time into stitching.  The stitching is much needed therapy at this time!

Great progress, you are almost done with that center! Looks like the cold weather worked for you. Unfortunately that is common around here until April! Hope work doesn't drive you nuts for the next 2 weeks!

That is an unbelievable project! You're doing great. Yes, not being able to control what others do---big problem to learn how to deal with for sure.
