A few days ago, I finally finished trimming back most of the plants, except for several on the west side of the house. Here is the reason I have to wait to trim those:
I don't want to scare mommy (to-be?) away!
So, I then spent two days scraping moss from between the bricks on our patio, and then filling in the cracks with paver joint sand; between the scraping and the sweeping I ended up with some blisters, so now I am taking a few days off before I tackle the weeding that needs to be done all around the landscaping beds.
I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I haven't picked up the model for over a week, now. I'm just so tired by the end of the day, I can't concentrate on such a big piece. I have spent a little time on a Mill Hill ornament, which I'll take a picture of once it's finished.
However, I do have a bit of stitchy news: yesterday I went to a garage sale held by the daughters of a stitcher, and it was like a true treasure hunt! I won't list everything I found, but I did want to share a picture of a very pretty Santa kit that I bought:
But my most prized acquisition was this wooden DMC floss cabinet, fairly filled with Anchor floss, all for $25:
I am currently trying to stop myself from going back over there today, as I did enough damage to my wallet yesterday! ;D
I'll leave you with a sweet picture of my little Callie O'Malley, catching a bit of morning sun:
Hope everyone has a great stitchy weekend!
