That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

It's the glasses.  That's it!  The NEW GLASSES!!  That is why I've been making so many mistakes on ABCD.

No pics tonight but I just wanted to thank you all for your sympathy and encouragement about my recent visit from the frogs.  Anyone that knows me will tell you that I am a strong willed, ornery, stubborn, bullheaded ... well I don't need to go on but I WILL NOT be defeated by this "simple" chart!  I picked it up right away this morning after making Masterchief his breakfast.  I stitched two...frogged one....stitched five.....frogged three.  I ended up ripping out at least three letters that I had just stitched!

 *Please refer to above description of myself*

I set my jaw and started again with a fresh strand of newly conditioned silk.  Things went well after I figured out that I had stitched TWO I's in the alphabet (along with several other counting mistakes).  I took my pain in the behind chart and accessories to the Nissan dealer to work on while I had the oil changed in the Murano.  Wouldn't you know it they worked at record speed today and I only got one letter stitched there.  I only have half of the letter A to do and then I can start on the border or the flowery portion on the bottom.  I will take a picture of it soon to post.

Laymie posted the most adorable picture on FB today.  I am so blessed to have her as my daughter-in-law and the mother of my grandson.  I told her I would share it with all of you here.....
Little Liam is three months old...TODAY!  Isn't he just precious?  Oh I know I might be a little biased here but come on....look at that face!  I could just squeeze the stuffin' right outta him!!

I'm going to work on the dreaded piece now.  Hopefully it will be a good frog-free night!

Let's drink a sip of wine to better stitching evenings ahead!
*clink* (that's a toast) as if you needed me to tell you...........

My trifocals are zero help, finally gave up and now take off my glasses to stitch.

Getting old and more beautiful is such a HUGE P I T A lol !!!

Well - cheers!! Hope this evening goes better! What a cute picture!! Love the look on Liam's face!

I know EXACTLY what you mean about it being the new glasses! I think that is the main reason I didnt stitch much last week. My new bifocals just weren't cutting it. I couldn't see 30ct with those things and normally I'm a 40ct kind of girl. Thankfully, my Dad is my optometrist, so I'm hoping for a painless fix!

Glad to hear you are moving forward with success!

You know what they say about stubbornness being a strong attribute, versus a weak one? Well, this just proves it, 'persistent stubbornness wins the race and I can't wait to see your finished ABC...!!

Love the pic of your sweet daughter in law and precious grandson..you just keep bragging, you have every right!!

I know what you mean about trying to get adjusted to glasses. It's not easy sometimes.

Little Liam looks like he's saying "uh, I don't know about this mom". LOL. Love that look and that sweet little face!

Carol said...

Hang in there Peggy--you can beat those darn letters at their own game!

No, you are not prejudiced--Little Liam really is adorable :)
