Saturday Update - February 28

Dove Love from last week and this week. Pretty good progress, since I only spent about 2 days on it this week. My girls have both said, "Mama! The big heart is almost done!"

I spent most of the week working on the 3 Ladies round robin round 5, so I could be finished by this weekend. Only to discover that Pixie is not ready to receive, so I'll hold it until she says she's ready for it. I think this is Rebekah's:

My work is all above the crease.

Other work this week - sorting beads (I'm only doing about 15-30 minutes each day, or else I'll go blind and my shoulders will be tense beyond all hope), and an hour on Emma. Last Saturday I stitched another handbag for Etsy - start to finish in one day! Shock! But I still need cording for the handle. I'd like to incorporate beads, but I'm not sure how to make it durable and pretty. No picture because it's not technically finished. I'm planning to head out to the store today, so maybe I'll find some commercial cording that makes me happy, just to finish it.

Book of Ink Circles SAL starts tomorrow! Yay!

Otherwise, no new news on house-hunting - we still have 2 houses on our short list, no new listings to look at this weekend. DH will be home next week (yay!), so we'll take him to see the short list houses and get his input. Hallie has some virus, she started with a tummy ache and fever on Thursday, and it's been up and down since then. I think she's a bit better today, more energy, cheeks not quite as pink, but when she tries to eat crackers and drink apple juice she says her stomach hurts. And with the little one, it's hard to tell if she's really sick, because she listens carefully to her sister's symptoms and copies her. Oh! And my best friend will be visiting some time soon. She had a family emergency that took her from Montana to Seattle, and since the emergency is less emergent, she's making plans to return home by visiting me! It's been about 18 months since I've seen her and her kids. It would be nice to have Emma #2 finished so she can just take them both with her, but I don't think that will happen!

Remember my bracelet experiment from yesterday's post. I still have 3 unclaimed. I may create a widget for it soon. But if you want a bracelet, read the "beading" post, and leave a comment with your e-mail! Thanks! Have a great weekend, everyone!

Wow! You're almost done with Dove Love! It's looking great!

The Earth Goddess looks very pretty! I can't wait to see all of our ladies at the end all completed.
