Three of four

feet were completed on the Dragon yesterday.

which leaves me his last foot and an extremely long and obviously flexible tail. I might even be able to finish him today as there are fewer than 1000 stitches to go. I should then be able to get a good start on the Housebarn (Cottage Garden Samplings) before the next pattern drop in the Deadly Aquarium.

Or, I really need to work on some final finishing. I have the plans, I have the cross stitch, and I most certainly have more than enough finishing materials.  But most of the time that particular idea feels about as overwhelming as a major clean and reorganization of the craft room.

So I am going to wander off for what feels really important right now – coffee..

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!
