Trying to get back into the "swing of things"

The morning greeted me with a deep turquoise sky filled will little puffy, cottony clouds. It is nice to have little clouds as it will help keep the temperatures down here, but I wish that these were rain clouds...as we are in desperate need of that wet stuff that falls from the sky! Hopefully this winter season will be a rainy one. We can hope, right?

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...

YAHOO!

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:

(I'm sorry for all the creases). I have about 2 and 1/2 more lines to finish stitching. I do have a border in mind as well as a design of a burning bush I am planning to stitch at the bottom. 

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!
