Well, it has taken some time for me to get back into the swing of things since returning home from the East coast. One would think, since it is 3 hours earlier in California that it would be easy to get up and get going. But I think that this old body takes longer than it use to when trying to get back into routine. I think that today is the first day that I feel like myself (which is 6 days since I have returned home).
With only one child at home, I have noticed a few changes...such as: I don't have to go to the grocery store as often to buy milk or any other food, the house stays a little cleaner, I only have to drive down to the rink 2-3 days a week instead of 6-7 days a week. Thus, I have found I have more time to be home. So I have actually found some time to sit and stitch this week. Can I have a...
So I took out my torah portion, which is waaaaaaayyyyyy over due. I did sign a promise that I would have it stitched and sent back to Toronto in 6 months, but we are coming up to 9 months. I was able to stitch a few word this week. Here is photo update of where I am right now:

If you want to see what some of the finish panels look like that have been sent back, go to this link: http://torahstitchbystitch.temmagentles.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/scanned-panels-June-14-red.pdf
If you want to see what the exhibition concept looks like (how the finished panels will be put together and presented), go to this link: http://torahstitchbystitch.temmagentles.com/events-activity/our-magnificent-exhibition-concept/
I am always overwhelmed when I look to see what other's have done with their panel pieces and I get excited to be a part of this huge project when I take a look at how the exhibition of this will be done. It will be truly amazing.
Well, it is time for me to sign off and get a few things done around the house so I can sit and stitch today. Until next time, take care and remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!
