It’s been a jam-packed month but I’m happy with my finish of Heartstring Samplery’s “Weaver’s Shuttle.” I’ve stitched this on a lovely piece of of HDF linen (I am so sad her linen won’t be available forever and ever … it’s so buttery and wonderful to work on) using Silk N Colors Cypress Umber, Sun King, and Kildeer Nest. The chart didn’t call for the bands of color, but I like it this way. For the Sun King, I used two over two, but the rest is one over two.
I’ve been busy with work and school. On the workfront, I’ve finally had my state-certified course to become an HIV and HCV tester. There aren’t many testers in this part of the state, so I’m looking forward to helping provide better coverage for the people living here. During the course, I had the pleasure of being able to stay with my Dad as well. Needless to say, I didn’t get any studying done, but I’d tried to prepare pretty well in advance. ;) For school, finals are looming and I’m feeling like I might possibly have three functioning brain cells left. Thank heavens that after the summer semester, I will pretty much be finished with coursework and can concentrate on my work in the field. The doing as opposed to the studying, LOL.
We had a great Easter! There were still heaps and piles and drifts of snow on Easter day so we had an egg hunt in the living room.
It made me nostalgic for when Max was very little and we lived in an apartment – that Easter he was so excited to find the eggs in our tiny apartment. He’s a whopping big 17 year old now …. not quite sure where the time went. He just celebrated his birthday a little over a week ago. No pictures to share, but as tall as he is now, I’d only be able to catch the angle under his chin and up his nose anyway. ;)
Also on Easter Day, we made the trek to pick up our new family member. Faith is a +/- 2 year old mixed breed (but featuring some Lab, Rottie, and Shepherd) rescue dog. She’s brought new life to Lola, and we are all absolutely smitten by her sweetness. <3
Coming home from that training workshop the other day, I decided to take a new road and wound up falling in love with this part of the world all over again. I took a few pictures to share the beauty.
Thanks for visiting. I hope all is well in your corner of the world, too. :)
