Not as much progress as I'd hoped

Well, to be honest, I rarely get as much stitching done as I'd hoped. The trouble is I think I still judge the length of time needed by how much I could get done when I was home with CFS/ME and could, basically, stitch most of the day, every day. Completely different now, but I still underestimate time needed. Actually, I do that with a lot of things, don't you? Anyway, here's how far I've got and I can see pretty clearly that it won't be done in time for next Thursday evening, but there's always a postal service, or we can go and visit.=)

Nic asked which thread I was using for the hardanger piece I showed you last post (which I haven't done any more of yet), and it's Caron Watercolor and Wildflower thread in 'Blossom'. Bit pricey, but worth it for something you especially want to stitch.

The weather seems to be mad everywhere, if what I hear on the on-line news is true, so I hope all are coping well. I have a cold at the mo and am afraid I'm going to have a nasty cough for a while, but I can't get what I need to deal with it out here....=( I usually chase a cough away with home-made fruit juices, but I've no juicer here and the stuff you buy won't do. Besides, there are very few pure juices here. Oh, but there are some pure fruit smoothies to be had, so maybe those might help. I'm eating a bowl of fresh pineapple, papaya and grapes as I type.=)

I hope you get over your cold soon. We have plenty of snow here so I'm wrapping up warm! :)
