Not much stitching

This is the Handwork ornament from the 2005 JCS issue. It is one of the kits from my stash from the years of exchanging. This ornament will take awhile since there is 100% coverage. I should pick up MA Tipper but haven't been able to pick up a bigger piece of stitching.
  I returned to work on Wednesday. I worked both jobs on Friday. It is probably too soon to start that. I felt really good yesterday but I am exhausted. So today has been lazy. I ran some errands this morning and have spent the afternoon stitching, watching tv.

I am getting excited about the exhibit at the CT Historical Society. I was checking out their web page and they are having The Essamplaire reproduce a bunch of samplers from the exhibit. Yea! 
   I have been thinking some more about what my stitching schedule is going to look like next year. First I have to spend October and November on ornament/small finishing. Here are some of the ornaments that I did the finishing on last year...

Well this has inspired me to get some stitching done.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hi Chris! So nice to meet you when you found my blog. Thanks for your comment and hope to see you there more often. Ah, Christmas! I just love your ornaments. I keep a small tree up in my studio year round and it is filled with primitive ornaments I did as freebies on my blog last year. It is fun to see it all year round. Do you keep your ornaments out too?

Hugs from Holland ~
