Some Stitchy Progress

I actually got some stitching done! I don't know how though. This week has been absolutely wild and stressful. I finally decided that if I didn't get a little stitching into the schedule, I was going to lose my mind. I always feel better after I get a few stitches into the fabric. I stitched the bottom tree, the deer, "Sheriff of Nottingham", and the peacocks. I think that's pretty good considering the week I've had. Now I have to decide if I want to continue on this or move onto another project.

Oh! Where is my head!? I forgot to mention that my project above is Robin Hood by Little House Needleworks.

My Latest RR Progress

Here is Rahenna's RR project, Oriental Butterfly, a kit by Dimensions as I received it.

And here is how looks as I mail it home! There are supposed to be two corded ties on it but I chickened out and decided to let her do them. I justified it to myself that they might not "travel" well through the mail. If it was my project, I wouldn't care if they didn't turn out perfect.

A Sad Day

Due to a faulty garage door, my dogs got out of the pen today and decided to "play" with my chickens who were out grazing in the yard. Needless to say, we will be spending the evening burying the chickens. Every single one of them, dead. They weren't ripped apart but they all had broken necks from being shook too hard. I have decided that before we get anymore chickens, we need to make a fenced in chicken run for them so they will be safe. It was my dogs this time but it very easily could have been a neighbor's dog, a hawk, or anything.

This is one of those times that you just have to learn from the mistakes made and move on.

June's TUSAL

Here it is! You may or may not be able to make out the tomatoes behind my TUSAL ort jar. The kitchen seems to have the best light and the counter is currently covered in my homegrown tomatoes. :)

My cousins get out of school for the summer this week so I'm about to be getting very busy! Hopefully I'll still be able to find time to stitch. :-P
