stitch stitch stitch repeat

So I realized (a bit late) that I kind of didn't post last weekend.  I do try to keep current, but I had one of those weekend where there just wasn't much exciting happening.  One of the days Rocky and I chilled out in the back yard in the shade.  I stitched and he milled about.  There was a pleasant breeze, it was great.
I also realized that this week would be the last for one of my co-workers.  I thought it would be nice to make her a little something.  I decided on a mug rug because she likes to drink tea and coffee. I embroidered a little weiner dog with her name in it because she loves daschund's and who doesn't like something personalized???

I gave it to her today so I'm safe to share it here even though I'm fairly certain she doesn't read my blog anyway! ha.

I finished up the May frame for the Storytime Sampler from in The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.  This month is Charlotte's Web.  I tried to add a pinwheel on the barn to look like a barn quilt.  It kind of turned out (?) but not super obvious what it is.  I also added the darker green grass and made Wilbur the pig a couple shades darker than what the pattern called for.  Also I made her jeans a darker blue.  

 And!  I have finally gotten back to knitting these socks!  yikes I have been avoiding them for some reason?  Don't know why really.  But I was.  So I have finished one heel and am about to start the second one.  Then I think they should go pretty quickly.  I have another pair of socks on the needles and once I finish those I am going to really debate about going back to double points.  Magic loop is fine and it's nice to have two done at the same time but it's kind of a bummer to fuss with adjusting the cable between the needles.  Geez what a whiner.  I'm glad I've at least tried the magic loop.

So this weekend is going to feel really short because I'm working tomorrow morning, which is why I'm home this afternoon.  It's been a lovely Friday, I hope you are all enjoying your day whatever you do!

Two at a time socks drive me crazy. There is tangling and the whole process seems to take for ever. You are a more patient woman than me!
