Slowing down on Sunday

I can't believe it's already been a week!!! My staycation is almost over and not much stitching at all but got alot of other things done around the homestead.

I almost got the first line done......."when in the night I sleepless lie" from Ann Hill, The Examplary designs.

Have been so busy with deep cleaning that I haven't had time to stitch but it's almost Sunday night and then back to regular schedule of events here....LOL

The lighter colors also slow me down a bit even with my glasses on.

And this one has gotten spoiled, even more spoiled this week with me being home every day!
I got a pic with my camera holding the bottom firmly so the hinge is not warped....LOL

I got alot of sleep in this week. And so did somebody else.

I got some organizing done in my stitching studio/bedroom

I walked past this sampler I'm designing and felt a twinge of guilt that I haven't finished it by now.

I've had alot of playtime to relax and be me!

and managed to drop my camera so the hinge is warped.....but, will make do until later.

And reflected alot on blessings of the local kind here. :0

watched the verdict of the Anthony trial  being read in absolute awe with my buddy here.

realized that our world may be a little twisted but I feel safe at home.

and that making our home a comfortable, cozy nest makes me happy

and growing where we are planted is a journey of itself.

I hope you all had a great week!  Thank you for all the comments and the participation in the giveaway in memory of Caylee!  I hope to show more progress on stitching with the next posting.

However, onward now to finishing up the clutter in my office space. I've filled bags to donate like you wouldn't believe this week. It's a great cleansing of the heart experience.
