I am slowly improving healthwise. It would be great if the coughing fits would go away. But my sinuses are much improved this morning.

Coming out of my long stitching lay off I have picked up this canvas from the bottom of the pile. I bought this more than two years ago. Started it (barely) last year during spring training. Apparently I knew what a disaster the 2012 season was going to be for the Red Sox because I immediately put it down and did not pick it up again. 
I find I really have to think with hand-painted canvas about what I am intending to do. I'm not a basketweave everything kind-of-stitcher. Which means being willing to change threads when the stitch I choose doesn't work with the thread I chose. 

I truly had no idea what to do for the doorways except basketweave. So I just asked on the Needlepoint facebook group. And as quick as a wink, I had a good suggestion. Doorways are now skip tent which will move along faster. I love instant feedback. 

For now, it's all about the cars. For the past week things didn't get done that should have. So I'm off to inspect a vehicle, oil change, rotate tires. That should give me a little public stitching time.

I choose to think it was a curse. You cursed the team by not stitching that. You should stitch as you watch every game. You will buoy them single-handedly.

I am pleased that you are feeling better Donna. Good luck with sorting out the car.
