At least

I am done with all the orange. I am still stitching on Miss Pink Mushroom. Looking at the hard copy pattern, the dress and girl do appear to be pink. In reality – orange, many shades of orange; hundreds upon hundreds of stitches of orange. I managed a bit over 2000 stitches yesterday without going completely insane.  We also did the smog check so that we can get the car registration completed prior to the August expiration and made a Costco run.

But anyway –

here she is. I am about 75% complete. Unfortunately, that number of stitches doesn’t include those of 732 which will need to fill in that open space around her head and shoulders.

I am hoping today will be quiet. I need a day of quiet…

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
