Progress & Stash

Instead of my usual chatty post, this will be relatively short. I have been knocked down the second time by the flu although it's not as bad this time. On top of that I did something to my right ankle on Friday so I've been limping around - probably sprained it. I have got so much on my to-do list but it seems like every time I get up Life just seems to like giving me a body slam. So maybe I just have to accept that things will just take longer to get done, and stop gnashing my teeth about it.

On the plus side, I have been stitching more this week. So, here's a progress on BOAF's Winter Sampler. Almost there!

Earlier this month Traditional Stitches had an Anniversary sale here's some Stash! I really needed some linens and these were new-to-me. I especially love the Vintage Patina which is a lovely soft green. The SB chart is something I've been eying for awhile too.

Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I hope you & yours are well. I will get a longer post in next time. Take care!

Sending warmth and healing thoughts your way, Melissa! At least your stitching is going swimmingly!

I do hope you are starting to feel a little better Melissa, flu is no joke and can really lay you out so I hope that you feel better.

Love the progress on your BOAF that stag looks great.
Like your latest stash too, I have bought SB Family sampler I have got as far as sorting the threads out, but not the stitching.
