ToS SAL


     Yesterday was my ToS SAL day, and I got a pretty goodly amount done.  I stitched and watched a movie for a bit, and talked to Rosa on the phone.  She called me and said she finally approached the guy she's practically in love with and he was interested.  But then his ex texted that she wanted to get back together, and he has a son with her whom he would like to see more of, so it may  not go anywhere.  She's known him for a while, and I think they would make a good match.  But I got to stitch and talk to her for quite some time.  We were on the phone for a little over an hour.  (And when I say a little, I mean it was an hour and one minute, or an hour and two minutes or something like that.)  We had fun though, so it was all good.  I had her laughing by the end.  And then I was watching a movie and stitching for a bit, until Randi called.  Then I was stitching and talking to Randi.  I got all the rest of the trunk done, and started part one, which is Smyrna stitch.  It's fairly easy.  You make a vertical cross then cover it with a diagonal cross.  It's done over four stitches, so it's like a big cross stitch.  I love them.  They're nice and quick and easy.  So without further ado, here's my progress from yesterday:  
     It's hard to see the shape of the stitches, but my camera doesn't get any closer, so...  Anyways, so far, I've thoroughly enjoyed working on this design.  Thanks to Abi Gurden, the designer, for giving it to me!!  It's wonderful.

Thanks Debbie. I love the cute designs she has. They're awesome. Thanks Nia. Next week, lol. Thanks Cucki. I'm liking the colors I chose. LOL, Mouse, as a matter of fact, I DO have speakerphone. I would be lost without it. Especially while talking, chatting, and stitching. I tuck the Q-snap up under my chin when I type, and if I already have my phone between my ear and my shoulder... Well, suffice to say I drop something, lol. Thanks Sally! Don't worry about it Rachel. You'll get to it eventually. It's for fun, not to make you feel obligated!! And thanks!!
