Some Progress

Very little stitching went on this weekend.  Saturday was cold but sunny, a good day for putzing about, running errands, doing housework, etc.  But I was so tired I just spent most of the day cuddled under a blanket on the couch.  The weather was so gloomy on Sunday that my mood followed suit.  After Mass, I spent the better part of the day watching old Grey's Anatomy episodes on the Roku box.   Pathetic, I know, but I am not sleeping very well these days, just managing four hour snatches at a time and having weird disconnected dreams.  And then on Monday I managed about an hour's stitching before work and another after I got home.  

Here's a photo of Flocking To Knit.  I am still at the large blocks of color stage: walls, roof, door and sign.  The roof needs another five rows and then the sign and the door need to be filled in.  The interesting part comes later with the detailing that distinguishes it from the other buildings in the series.  As luck would have it, I have the buttons required in stash: three small balls of wool from JABCo.  They will add a nice touch to the finished piece.

Glad that you enjoyed the retreat even if you didn't get as much stitching done as you thought.

These little shops do look good.
