First Finish

  How was this week for you? Did you stitch a lot? Start a new project every day?
I finished the last bonus chart from Lizzie Kate's Very Scary. I hate that these linen colors are not showing up. This is a bright orange from Weeks.
  I cooked some more of the Hello Fresh kits.
This was our favorite, cheesy stovetop shells with roasted carrots. Yum!
It was comfort food that was needed due to the crazy cold weather change. It feels so much colder when it was 50 degrees warmer a week or 2 ago. Brr!
  So my travel schedule is starting to pick up. It was so hard to pack... I have a new suitcase... I have been home for a month wearing jeans, pajamas and workout why can't I find that scarf that goes with this dress?!? The struggle is real!
   That is all for now. The next 3 weeks are going to be busy!!!!
    Thanks for stopping by!

Love that little Halloween design. I'm working on a PS design for Halloween. Mostly because that is the only thing I had ready. I hope to get a sampler started this week. That food looked yummy. By the way, are you Panther fans? We sure hope to be playing you next week! All depends on tomorrow for us! Good luck getting back to work. It can be a pain after a good beak. I remember that well.

Love your Halloween stitch but never would I guess that you used orange fabric! Gotta love comfort food!

I'm glad you had some down time in December Chris. Sounds like your schedule is going to be busy once again!

Such a sweet Halloween stitch that you could finish here. That little cat looks so funny. Not so much stitching here over the weekend as we are having company. And no, this year I am not joining the Crazy Challenge stitchers again. I want to concentrate more on my big projects.
Your comfort food looks so delicious - that could be comfort food for me as well.
I hope going back to work wasn't too stressful after the time you could spend at home.

Safe journeys, I hope the weather in some parts doesn't hinder your journeys.
Nice new start.

Nice finish! So it's back to traveling, huh? I bet it was nice to just be home for a while. Safe travels!
