Feb 1 Sunday SAL Update

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and managed to stay warm and safe in all of the snowstorms that I saw cross over the country....both yours and mine.  We had a nice quiet weekend of watching movies and just hanging out with one another.  It was nice.  No plans, no where to go.  I love weekends like that.  Spent a lot of couch time cuddling and watching the tube.  

Didn't get too much stitching done, but I did get some done. We are not football watchers.  Oh no...I heard your collective gasps as I admit that, but we did peek in from time to time.  Watched the  first 10 minutes, the half-time show, and the last 10 minutes.

As far as stitching goes, I pulled out Elizabeth again on Saturday and did some work on her.  I'll post a pic of that sometime later in the week, as it's in the perfect place in the q-snaps right now and don't want to move it.  And then I stitched a couple of hours on Cornwall Cottage, not as much as I would have liked, but still some.  I still can't say it enough that this is such a satisfying piece to work on.  I love it.

Not much else is new.  Working on year end for the company.  Lots of work to do on that, but it's all enjoyable.  Have a great week everyone.  I might pop in on Wednesday with a WIP update.

Bachelor tonight, hopefully lots of stitching will be done.  However we are taking Lulu for her annual check up this afternoon, which means shots etc.  Might have to spend some cuddle time with her tonight.

That sounds like a perfect weekend, Barbi! Unfortunately, I had to work Sunday and then go to a Superbowl party on Sunday so very little stitching got done. But, I'll be stitching tonight watching the Bachelor and his silly girls :)

Love your WIP!

I'm not a football fan either. I did have a friend text me when the halftime show was on. I wasn't impressed with it.

Your stitching looks beautiful!

Sounds like a lovely weekend. Lovely stitchy progress.

I agree - couch time garantees the perfect weekend, lol.
Very nice progress on your WIP. Stitching all these individual motives certainly gives you the feeling that you achieve something.

Linda said...

It's looking brilliant, you did amazingly well with just a couple of hours. I'm really enjoying this stitch too.

Cornwell Cottage is coming along nicely. I looks like you could use it as a stand alone border for a favorite family photograph.

Andrea said...

Great progress, the colours are just so pretty.
