Tuesday, 30 January 2018

Hey there!  I can’t believe it’s the end of January already……

I went to my Essential Oils class today, we talked about Immune Support and what blends could help.  As usual, I enjoyed the class and Jennifer made me a blend of melaleuca (tea tree), basil, and eucalyptus to help clear my sinuses in the morning.

Okay, I have been working on “Ten” by Amy Mitten.  It’s been slow going…..really slow going.  See the picture below.IMG_1052

As you can see, I finished the goat on the right side, cross stitched the serpent in, and filled in more of poor Eve.

Next I’ll start at the top of the tree and fill in the tree trunk.  This calls for using the Ceylon stitch back and forth, but I’ll probably just use a Double Running Stitch.  I’ll work one needle full for the trunk, then one needle full for Eve.  That way I can save my eyes from all that close over one stitches on Eve.

There is more work on the serpent using the Trellis stitch.  It is suppose to give the serpent a detached look from the fabric.  We’ll see.

By the way, I am only on Chapter 3 out of 10 chapters.  I have along way to go.

For my decluttering task today, I am going through all the photo albums Mom had of various ski trips, vacations, etc.  No one wants them, so I take out the photos, throw them away, and will recycle the empty albums.

Back to work….
