It is Friday...

With the arrival of Friday, the hockey committments lessen...only two skates over the weekend: one on Saturday morning and one on Sunday - definitely much more manageable. Only thing on the plate, for me at least, is to work in *Store #2*. I will be there another 5 days until the morning supervisor gets back from vacation. Once he gets back, all the stressfull situations we were anticipating back at the start of June, will have come and gone (stressful situations survived: opening *Store #2*, getting through Father's Day with 2 stores open, employee vacations and balancing all the business stuff with the boys' hockey clinics). Little by little, we will have reached the other side of this hill.

Anyway, on Wednesday evening I put the final X's into the Pineapple and last night, while sitting at the hockey rink, I started working on the backstitching. Here is a photo of what it looks like:
IF I can find some time to sit and stitch over the weekend, I might be able to actually get this done - and even finish it as a square pillow. That is my hope :)

Some thoughts I came across in my inbox this morning:

As a creator, you have the right and the power to make of your life what you wish, to follow your own patterns, to experiment and grow according to your own needs. As a co-creator with God, you have the right and the power to do this in a perfect manner. ~ Bruce Gilbert

Thank you for taking time and visiting! It means a lot.
Until next time, remember...

Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!

Your Pineapple is coming along so nicely and the back-stitching will of course POP it right off the pillow. I sure hope you enjoy your Friday and that the weekend is good to you too.
Be always in stitches.

The pineapple is beautiful! It looks great. I cant wait to see the finished pillow.

Glad you guys are over the hump with all the stressful stuff! Hopefully the new store will be settled soon.
