Sarah's attitude became bad for a couple of days about a week after she stopped taking her meds. It is back to the way we like now. I will have to tell you the story of how we got her back to the way she needs to be, her chemical balance back to normal, another time. She is here and I don't want her to know what is happening.
Today was a bit scary for me. It started out fine...taking the kids to school and then going to the YMCA and the grocery store...then on the way home from the store, my right front tire blew out. I did have the cell phone, fortunately! I called Jack immediately because:
- I wanted to let him know what happened to the car
- I wanted to tell him I was off the road and safe
- I wanted to ask him what I should do...who do I call (?).... I am not good in situations like this....Jack told me to call a friend's son first and if he was unavailable to call Roadside Service. Craig's cell was turned off or out of service. I then called Roadside Service.
Well, I still haven't actually finished Isaiah 40:31, but I do feel like I am getting close now! I finished the three purple colors in the mountains on the right page and have started on the blue of those same mountains. Then all I have left to do on the right page is the white of the mountains and the rest of the verse. On the left page there are a few mountains, but the left page is mostly trees. The part of the verse on the left page is complete. Maybe I will be done in another week or two? I also need to back stitch most of the eagle.
I am getting frustrated with my scanner! I couldn't get the entire project in, once again. The location of the verse is the only thing you cannot see, but it is still maddening! Also, because my scanner is on a shelf above my head it is hard to get it perfectly straight with this material. It lays perfectly straight when I have it out of the q-snap. But getting it to lay straight on a surface above your head, well.....GRRR!
I need to take a break from the Isaiah project to do the burp towel for my friend's grand daughter to be born next month. The baby shower is March 13. I really don't think it will take me more than a day to do the towel, I am just so focused on Isaiah, it is hard to think of doing a different project right now. I will probably take the break to do the burp towel when I have the mountain part on the right page done. Doing the burp towel will give me a quick finish under my belt for 2010. I think the project I am debating myself on what project to do after Isaiah and the burp towel are complete. I have a pattern of a Apricot Poodle that looks so much like our Petro who passed away almost 8 years ago. I also have downloaded a pattern of a yellow car for my grand son. Both are relatively small projects. I believe the next big project I am going to do is of Yosemite's Half Dome. I downloaded it a few weeks ago. It reminds me of home because I grew up just a bit more than an hour's drive from there. I will probably end up having at least one WIP while I am doing Yosemite's Half Dome. I need to figure out what size material would be best to work it on. Be prepared, stitching friends, when I get ready to do it, I will be posting asking for your opinions!
I hope everyone has a great week.
