Shuttle a little over half done

Good morning! It's starting out to be a nice morning weather wise but in an hour or so it's suppose to start snowing through tomorrow. It's lake effect snow which means it will be heavier.

Thank you for reading my blog and for your comments. I appreciate them. It's fun reading everyone else's blogs. Some of you I am totally jealous of you do such nice work and have a way with words, make your blogs interesting. I'm not that gifted, so I'm jealous! Seriously I do love reading the blogs.

Tomorrow is my brother's back surgery. He broke a rod in his back so they have to replace it. Hopefully they won't have to undo everything done before as that will be more extensive. But they won't know until they get in there. The Dr. said he had never seen that happen before, he has know idea how that rod broke. Only Tim could do that. I tell him it's by playing ping pong like he did.

I have the shuttle well underway for my great nephew, Nolan. It's going fairly quick and easy. But like most easy pieces, I'm having to frog quite abit. I think it's because I get going too fast and make careless mistakes by not concentrating like I do on the more difficult pieces. Do you find you do that?

Tomorrow is the Grand Opening of the Resource Room. We are so excited. It would be nice if a client or two came to use it but on the grounds the classes at Love Inc are just starting the clients may wait a week or two to let the points build a little. They get 10 points for attending and 5 points for doing their homework so they earn up to 15 points each session. I may in future teach a cross stitch class but we'll see.

Until next time.....Happy Stitching!

Hope your brother is OK Barb. That sounds painful. Yes I always end up frogging the small easier pieces as well.

Lovely start. The clouds of smoke look like they have been charted really well. :)

I hope your brother's surgery will go smoothly today.
Nice rocket piece that you finished here.
