Hard to put down the needle!

I uploaded my last paper for my last formal class on Saturday and picked up my needle that afternoon. I found it very hard to get used to not having to read anything for classes and felt guilty that I spent most of Sunday watching HGTV and stitching. But I'm sure I'll get over that soon! LOL
Here is my progress on C@HRH. There's a lot of fill in this block - at least at the top so I'm concentrating on getting that filled in and then it's on to the easier part at the bottom.

Hope your week is off to a good start! It's humpday tomorrow and then all downhill to the weekend.

Weekend Stitch#ss Results

This weekend I rebelled a bit and instead of reading for my class, I spent Saturday evening and most of yesterday stitching. A girl can stay away from the needle only so long before she has a breakdown and needs a fix I tell you! Here is the result of my stitch%ss - progress made on Block 4 (technically Block 6 if I were going in order left to right). The picture is pretty lousy because we've been without sun for the last three days. It broke through a little after a brisk burst of rain but disappeared quickly as the sun set. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny so I will try and get a better photo - maybe with a little progress to show too!

Thank you so much everyone for your nice comments on my finished ornament. I really like it too. I am way behind in blog visiting which I hope to rectify shortly as a week from tomorrow I am officially done with formal classes. It's a very good thing because I've got a serious case of scholastic burnout going. Hope you had a great Monday!

May Update

I am a little late posting my recap of my May goals but here they are:

1. Finish Block 3 of C@HRH - Done
2. Finish a Christmas ornament - Started but not finished
3. Start Block 4 of C@HRH - Not Done

I did finish the ornie I started over Memorial Day weekend today. It is Yule Rejoice by Primrose Needleworks from the 2008 JCS issue. I really, really love this ornament!
My goals for June are as follows:

1. Stitch a Christmas ornament - already kitted up Midsummer Night's design from the 2007 JCS issue.
2. Stitch Block 4 of C@HRH - I put a few stitches into that today.

I'm only doing two goals for the moment since I'm still trying to get my last formal class out of the way. It's legal issues and is taking a tremendous amount of time for reading and writing. But class will be done on 6/22 so maybe I will get both of my June goals realized this month. We shall see!
