Friday will be my last day of work for a while. It's my last day of work for 4 1/2 months, to be exact. I have so many things that I need to do at my house in the country, that I decided to take time off of work to get them done. It has been nearly a year and a half since my dad passed away, and things out there just aren't progressing quickly enough to suit me. Of course, there's no real rush, other than the one in my head. I'm not planning to sell the house, but even so, I would like to have the time to go through everything out there and decide what I'd like to keep and what can go. That takes time-- more time than I have to devote to it when I have to be at work 5 days a week. So, that's where the leave of absence comes in.
Last night, I finally had a happy dance for Pansy Sampler! This is the project I chose for the weekend needleroll stitch-along. Most of this was already stitched before I picked it up over the weekend. I only had to do the Hardanger and beads. I just couldn't get motivated, and things kept going wrong, so I didn't finish it until last night. I still need to hemstitch it and assemble the needleroll. Maybe that will be next month's FUFO project.
