Spring Break

So I started Spring Break at a Conference in Biloxi, MS at the Beau Rivage Casino.  I had a great time but I took my Geography content quiz using a coworker's tablet (because mine was dead).  Well, her tablet died in the middle of the quiz but I got to finish it on my iPhone.  I missed one because I was hurrying to finish (the quiz was only 15 minutes long).  I said that China had 1.3 MILLION people when I knew it was BILLION.  Next time I will double check before I submit.  I no longer have a 100 average.

Saturday & Sunday I spent taking out and putting back in (twice) the Celtic knot on the right side.  We stitched at Jennifer's on Sunday.  We celebrated Theresa's birthday with her friend Sue from up north.  We had a great time visiting and stitching.

Then for the rest of the week I have spent cleaning my house and cleaning out my office during the day and stitching on the Celtic Mystery Stitch-a-long.  I haven't made as much progress as I would have liked.  I have finished the frames for the next two patterns and 1/2 of the Celtic knot on the left.  Today I have almost completed my house cleaning.  I have half of my desk (which is an L-shaped desk with a bookshelf built in) to finish cleaning.  Then I plan on spending the rest of Spring Break stitching. Oh yeah, I have a wedding to go to on Saturday but the rest of the time I will be stitching.

Well got to go watch Teen Titans with Leif and hold him.  He's ready for bed and wants all of my attention.  Typical of a 5 year old.

Thanks for stopping by,

Week 9 - Progress on Celtic Mystery Stitch-a-long

Celtic Mystery Stitch-a-long
lacking green in the 3 patterns

I got busy this last week on the Ink Circle's Celtic Mystery Stitch-a-long.  I started working on 3 of the patterns.  I was originally working on the upper right corner, but decided to work on the other two below.  So, I stitched one color at a time in each of the patterns.  I have two colors left, purple in the upper left corner, and green in all 3 pattern.

As for Michelle's afghan, I decided to do a basic granny square.  On Wednesday at bowling I finished 6-1/2 squares.  So when I got home I finished the last one.  Now I have 3 patterns left to stitch.  I think I will submit this afghan for the Mississippi State Fair in October.  I think it is going to be a beautiful afghan.  I can't wait to put it together.

Well, I got to go.  I need to finish the 3 patterns I have left.
