I know it's been ages since I last posted. My blog is in disarray and could really stand some attention, however, with 48 hours worth of tasks to do each day. . . you get the picture. Speaking of pictures, my battery was going dead so I'm late getting the picture up for my SAL. Now with fresh batteries and considerable less light I've gotten the pictures, however they are not what I'd like them to be. Maybe I'll replace them tomorrow if it ever brightens up around here and stops raining.
Speaking of rain, I'd invest in that ark building class if I didn't believe the promise that we wouldn't be destroyed by water again. There's been quite a bit of it around here making navigation around the city a bit troublesome. Of course, it is better than snow right? At least it seems like we're on the path to finally ushering in Spring. This boathouse sits along the edge of the river, or at least it used to. The soccer fields and the baseball fields are completely under water. If there weren't goals sitting there, you'd never realize that this was a recreational field. I've got a lot to be thankful for as I'm as dry as a bone inside.
Back to the SAL. My DSIL and I are doing a silk gauze stitch along. I'm doing the Erica Michaels Little Bits of Thanksgiving piece. It is coming along quickly, although I can tell my vision is not what it used to be the first time I did a silk gauze piece. Thank goodness for the clip on magnifier I bought at camp last year. I discovered that with this magnifier I could really see the wholes for the Terry's Garden piece which I really struggled with (cause I couldn't see!!). I've been excited to work on it ever since!! Maybe I should try it on all my WIPS and get a few of them knocked out.
