Mary Grows

Not the best photo, but here's our friend Mary back in the rotation. I didn't get as much done these three days as I did after several hours in the car, but the top of the stocking is starting to take shape. And she has a head! If not a face--still not sure what to do about the color.

Today is the end of summer hours, my last half day Friday. Two years ago, I bemoaned the fact that I never went thrifting on my half days as I had planned. Nor cleaned the craft room. (If you click through, you will get to see tiny baby pix.) Today, recognizing that it was my last half day, I spent a couple of hours cleaning up the craft room. I'm about halfway done. The scorching temperatures forecast for the rest of the weekend suggest I will be able to perhaps finish the job. Wouldn't that be nice?

Mary is really taken up shape. I hope she hasn't been too contrary lately. Enjoy your weekend!

I always have all these plans for the summer holidays, so far I have sorted out one drawer. But I have stitched a lot and answered all my emails.

Mary is growing nicely.

Nice progress. Good luck with the cleaning/sorting. I'm still working on the unpacking from my move last fall!

Good progress Nikki... I need to do a bit of sorting and decluttering too.
