I am coming along nicely with page 3 of Book of Stitches although it did not get too much work.
I got to start Paradigm on October 31st for the entire day. I really enjoyed this stitch and did not want to put it down at the end of the day. I can hardly wait for next Wednesday to stitch some more.
Crystal Tree is coming along really nicely. I have found that an extra-large pattern, a highliter and solitude are the answer to working on this piece. I have done very little counterstitching and that pleases me greatly. For some reason, Crystal Tree does not photograph well. Will have to play with the camera and see if I can get a better shot. I have also stitched a piece for the Ornament Exchange on the Needle and Thread Board and cannot show it until it has been received - late November.
Jim is making progress and is now at home. His being at home keeps my sister very busy so DH and I have done our best to pick up the slack for her. She calls me her "laundry fairy". We are trying to accomplish some odds and sods for her - you know - those things you never have time for. Our days are full. We are enjoying spending time with her and her family.
