While I listened to a book by Nicholas Blake, I made progress on the Mary Poppins SAL (stitch along.) I like the challenge of this design, but it's not going very fast. Anyway, it's beginning to look like something. I am working on the first third of the design. The source of the design, and the beautiful work of the designer is here http://marypoppins-hu.blogspot.com. I like working on this beautiful design because I wanted to do something more challenging in counted cross-stitch, but to make it easier I'm doing it in one color.
And I took some time to bake a banana bread
In addition to Miss Poppins and crocheting the baby things, I plan on following the crewel work that Mary Corbet is doing on her blog, Needle n Thread.com. I need to do some setting up, so I'll probably make a JoAnn's run tomorrow.
And to make my day even sweeter, I received a thank you note in the mail today from two of my grandnieces. You're welcome Katrina and Brenna.
