Just a quickie

Ok...get your minds out of the gutter!!!! LOL!

The cadet is home!!!!! YEAH!!! He looks great and is very happy this trimester is behind him. Grade wise he didn't do as well as he hoped..he's worried about his programming grade. Seems that the policy at RIT is even if you are carrying an A average, if you flunk the final, you flunk the class. He can't afford to do that and he's a bit worried. If his gpa falls below 2.5 the ROTC will put him on conditional status which means he'll lose his scholarship for next quarter and his stipend. He definitely can not do that!

Me, we are totally busy at work. And nothing is new with mr. contractor. Grrr.

Oh, I have been stitching, just a bit. I picked up my love, John Foster the other night, we are still arguing a bit....I realized I used the wrong color for the motif inside the Quaker medallion...it should be grey, mine is DMC 420, a burnt golden brown. I am not sure if I'm going to leave it or not. I have to stitch the bird in the center and then I'll decide. Normally, I would leave the error, I don't think that it is going to stick out like a sore thumb, but this is a reproduction sampler and I have this anal retentive thing about doing reproductions exactly as they are charted...am I nuts?

I'll post a picture tomorrow and you can take a peek and tell me what you think.

Oh, does anyone who reads my blog subscribe to Ellen Chester's, With My Needle? If you do, have you saved any of them on your computer? This year, John Foster (my darling) was their year long stitch along project. I think I want to use the monthly assignments as a way to keep on track stitching John. I need July, August and September's instructions. If anyone can let me know if you've saved them, please comment and I'll get in touch with you. It's not life or death but it would be nice to use the assignments as a guide to stitch him. According to what I've saved, I am just about 5 months finished. Woo who! And that's about right because I have stitched the entire upper left corner the central medallion and some of the right side. I have to finish the right side's bird, dovecote and words. I am almost down to the house. It's exciting to see the progress. Also, I am not looking forward to stitching the roof. It looks tediouly boring. I don't think I'll stitch it in one session, I'll do a little bit at a time as I stitch the bricks on the house. And maybe save it for when I want to watch TV and don't need to concentrate.

Well, I have to go to sleep. Thanks for visiting!!!
