Well, here I am with my feet safely on the ground. Thursday's flight home was interesting to say the least. About 1/2 hour before we got on our flight CNBC news comes on with a story about a plane that had to land in Calgary, Alberta with some injured passengers from a rough flight. My heart jumps into my throat. We are flying to Calgary in less than an hour. The flight was long but very uneventful - no turbulence at all - Thank goodness!!!!!
We cleared customs, grabbed some supper and hopped the next plane to Ottawa, Ontario arriving at 11:30 p.m. to be met by DH's brother. The weather was 32F and most of their umpteen feet of snow had melted. Here we had been getting photos and emails complaining about the bitter cold and umpteen feet of snow everyone had!! Apparently, there had been some extreme warmth into the 50's and most of the snow was gone. I'm not complaining - snow and cold are the reasons we winter in Arizona.
Most of my stitching was done over that couple of days .
Here is my Paradigm update
I managed to make some good progress with my hours sitting in the airport and the two long plane flights. I am almost finished this page - next week perhaps?
Little Book of Stitches has made a re-appearance. I worked on Page 3 for a bit - not much to see but getting there.
Next up is my Neighborhood progress. I am having a difficult time with this one. I am having a great deal of trouble seeing the holes in the fabric. I don't know if it is my eyes or the color. It is 36 count. I forgot my magnifier in Yuma so now I am really struggling. I don't know what the solution is for this. It is supposed to be in the mail on the 15th but I received it late and with my difficulties I don't think it will be ready for mailing on tiime.
I am off to visit with my BFF Beatrice (Stitchingwithaview.blogspot.com) - having trouble with hyperlink today - and her Mom this afternoon. We have not seen each other since mid October so I am looking forward to the visit. I am hoping to catch up with my friends from Knowledge and Needles stitching early next week. I have really missed them while I have been in Arizona and I understand there has been lots of stitching going on so I am really looking forward to seeing them.
I don't know what my stitching progess will be like next week. DH and I will be chasing (sorry - looking after) our two grandsons 3 and 1 while their parents go to Cuba for a vacation. I may just sit in a corner in total exhaustion when I have a few minutes instead of stitching. Will post when I can.
