Work Week Has Ended

It’s good to get back to normal and on a regular schedule. My work week is over and now I’ll concentrate on my home and some projects.  I would like to finish my bathroom rug this afternoon and tonight.  I’ve crocheted two more dishcloths this week and now I have all the threads need to start a new cross stitch project.

Project for tonight is to complete the other half of my crocheted bathrug. It’s made of cotton and will wash up good each week in the laundry. I plan to make three of these to replace a few of my very worn rugs used in there now.

I’m using three different thread colors for my dishcloths and can normally make a 9″ one in a night while watching TV.

My crochet project is coming from this booklet which I bought new in 1985.

My project station is right beside my chair in the living room. It’s also my writing station. I plan to send out at least one letter/card a week in 2019.

Cross Stitch

Several years ago I started a new project and didn’t finish it. Old Salem Mill cross stitch project (3)I recently picked it back up and wanted to share where I am now and will share the finished project in a couple of months if all goes well.

It’ll take some time but I love the look of the linen fabric and the colors just pop with that background.  When finished I’m hoping to put it in a barnwood frame made by hubby.
