Am I the only one who doesn't enjoy Sunday as much as Saturday because I know I have to go back to work the next day? And as a kid I clearly remember the last week of vacation being full of anxiety and thinking it didn't even count as a vacation week. Well I have that feeling now, this will be my last week of maternity leave before I have to return to work, and though I mostly enjoy my job, I DON'T WANT TO GO! I know, I know, I am far from the only mom to ever feel this way, but it doesn't make it any easier. Maybe sweet husband will win the lottery this week and I can just stay home (wish me luck here!)
So the top pic is my new start of the week. No, I haven't finished Calvin's birth sampler, but am pretty close. I just couldn't resist starting this once the chart arrived in the mail! I am a big fan of Bent Creek (gee all my new projects this year have been Bent Creek) so I was surprised I had never seen this series before. See the top little leaf above the top pumpkin? That was the green I originally stitched all the vines in, but once I started filling in the hill you could barely see it. Luckily it was quick to rip out and redo in a darker green.
This is my progress on Mirabilia's Santa....trudging along, but hoping to have it done before the end of the school year.
And this is my Pinterest project of the week, an Easter wreath. I wrapped the wire part in the fuzzy green yarn that looks just like the grass you stuff in Easter baskets, and then added the carrots bunnies and flowers. I should have chosen a thicker foam wreath though, because man it took a lot of wrapping to cover it all with the yarn!
What I'm Reading this Week: Ms. Peregrine's School for Peculiar Children
