TUSAL PIX and Updates

Well, my TUSAL glass doesn't look all that much fuller to me, but I know that I have done a lot of stitching in this month. Guess I just was real good at using all the strand that I had pulled. That is a good thing, right? Most of the threads are from PK with a few Cookies and the new exchange piece mixed in. I apologize for the darkness of the picture, but it is night time here. I knew I wouldn't have an opportunity to do this tomorrow because we are having our 3 yo DGD spending the weekend with us. We are loving it, but it does keep us BUSY! I thought I would try and "Spring" my TUSAL up a little with a bouquet of Lilies bought by Grand Daddy to celebrate DGD Lily's visit. Obviously, I am not a photographer, but luckily enough, my DS#2 is marrying one in June. Maybe after that, my blog will start looking better - LOL!!

I can't show you any update pictures of my stitching this week, but I am almost finished stitching my exchange piece. I am really loving it, and am going to have to stitch it again sometime. I got a little extra stitching in this week because my coworker twisted her natural knee (she had the other one replaced last March), and I had to get her to the orthopedic doctor and wait while she was seen. The doctor gave her a cortizone (sp) shot, and some pain pills and sent her on her way. She said that she will be having to have this knee replaced sometime in the not too distant future. She really bounced back quick from that last surgery, so I am sure she won't wait as long to get this one fixed.

Well, since we have our little guest this weekend, I am sure my stitching will suffer a little, but I am still going to try to meet my goals. Next weekend DH and I will be spending at a retreat house with our good friends. Supposed to be a 36 hour relax-a-thon - that would sure be good for all of us.

Thank you all so much for coming and visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave a comment. I really do appreciate it very much!! So, until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time.

I believe if the TUSAL jar isn't filling up fast, but you are getting stitching complete then you must be making good use of all your thread...which is a good thing! The jar looks a little errie in the dark-purple light :)Enjoy the DGD!
Take care.

Kudos on your TUSAL progress! I agree...less is "more"...more stitching that is!

Hope you have a great weekend with your DGD.

I love your TUSAL photo with the lilies. It looks like the TUSAL jar is the vase in the small photo. Very nice. :)

I know what you mean about not being a photographer. I see so many beautiful stitching pics....and then there are mine. LOL!
I am going to blame it on my camera.
Have fun with your GD this weekend.

Your weekend with your granddaughter sounds like such fun, Beth--after all, she is past the "terrible twos" stage to she will be a wonderful little companion. I'll bet she'll want to bake cookies with you, won't she? Have a great time :)

Enjoy the little one - we know they don't stay that way long enough! Oh, I do agree, I like to use every bit of the strand - even DMC. Have fun stitching when you get the chance.

Beautiful ORTs! Enjoy those grandchildren!

Some months the TUSAL threads go invisible, I think - trust me... they're in there. They're just, um, "clear" colored. :)

Happy stitching!
