Long Day - July 03, 2010

I had hoped for a bit larger of a picture, however, this is what I got!!
And, after all day, and until 10:00 p.m. this evening, this is all I got stitched!! Not really complaining, as I do thoroughly enjoy each, and every, little "x" I can accomplish. I did get almost entire "sugar" container finished and two pieces of the "lace". The lace is a bit hard as I have to make tiny "pulled eyelet" stitch in the center of each piece. Not quite used to these yet. However, from the amount shown on chart I should be a pro by the time I am finished.
I am truly looking forward to finishing this table topper and displaying it very proudly in my home!!
I had several questions regarding this chart and emailed the designer, Claudia Dutcher. Within a very short time, she responded and very kindly helped me over my questions. She also offered some very helpful suggestions to me for completing this project. Best of all she told me it was not absolutely necessary for me to "pull" any threads at all, if I did not wish!! YEAH!! This was added incentive for me to get this to completion now!!
My poor hubby, Max, spent his entire day pacing in anticipation of fishing!! He has had some very severe confusion in recent weeks. I simply could not get it explained well enough that there would be no fishing by us today!! He even was upset with our dear neighbor as he decided she had taken off fishing without us, while in reality she simply went in to Chicago for a few days!! Guess I am going to have to make sure some one takes him the first of the week, if not before - just not me this time!!
I had so much relaxation, once I got started, that I finally relaxed for first time in several weeks. Guess today worked so well that I will extend my "virtual stitch-in" through tomorrow also!!
Love and Hugs!!
