My Meager Progress

First, congratulations Caroline!
Second, everyone's stitching is gorgeous! I've been having a hard time keeping up with commenting on the blogs and on the BB. So many pretties! So if I haven't commented on your pic please know that I have looked and drooled over each and every one of them. I've been busy lately. Partly because I can't seem to concentrate on anything anymore. I don't know if it's Spring Fever or what. I live in the Northeast and the weather here has been awful. It's June already and we haven't really had a Spring yet. It feels like it's been raining forever. I just saw our weather report for the next week and they are forecasting thunder storms for all of next week (again). We opened our pool Memorial Day weekend and haven't put a toe in yet. The water is sitting at a steady 65 degrees. That's freezing, considering that your outside body temp is usually around 86.
Okay, enough complaining... On to stitching! Here is my small amount of stitching from the Retired Artists SAL last weekend. Left, is the pic from the last time I touched her, back in December. Right is the bit I got stitched over the weekend. Not much progress, did I say I'm having a hard time concentrating?

Sorry for the sloppy picture. I didn't take her off the rods, since I will continue work on her for this weekend's SAL, the SWIP/UFO SAL. Hope to be able to show some real progress after this weekend.

Till next time! Happy Stitching!
