This one week that I can truthfully admit I'm glad to see in my rear view mirror.

I figured out I drove over 917 miles last week.  That's more miles than Dale, Jr. drove at Talladaga last weekend!  4 round trips from our home in Manassas to Baltimore, Md. and one round trip from Manassas to Norfolk, Va.

I can only hope that this upcoming week there are no road trips in my future.

I wasn't able to complete anything.  I was going to start a different sampler than this one.  But the legend didn't arrive until today, from Illinois.  So, I pulled out a small piece to work on. But there has just not been a lot of stitching time opportunities.

While waiting at the hospital, I did managed to work on two scarves.  Had to put one away until  one more ball of yarn came.  It also arrived today.

I knitted on an eternity scarf in the meantime.

Hopefully I can finish the scarf on the left this week.

It's been awhile since I splurged a bought a chart.  I just didn't see any that I fell in love with and just couldn't live without.  Until I saw one on a Facebook group I belong to.

It's not a reproduction, but rather a modern version of sampler.  Still I couldn't resist.  Especially when it could be ordered via Internet and immediately  downloaded.  I just love instant gratification!

My kids all sent me Christmas lists and I've bought at least 2 gifts so far.  This morning I bought my Thanksgiving turkey.  Almost 24 lbs.  My kids love turkey sandwiches.  So it won't go to waste. 

Well that's all for this week.  Hope everyone else had a happy stitching week!


  1. Karoline is a very lovely girl. She looks like a quick stitch as well. Wow, 917 miles is quite a bit of driving. Hope you are able to spend more time at home this coming week. Your scarves are lovely. Have a great week!
