My weekend deadline

Hello people.  I hope everyone is well, safe, and enjoying the weekend's start.  Things have not been going well for me.  Animal wise.  Very upsetting and it's been a rough couple of days - not sure what to expect for the next few.
I worked on the final pear design for two days.  Most of the ideas I had were not compatible with the size, and then I thought maybe it should be a large one.  Really large.  So naturally I want to do one now.  But first I need to stitch XII and there's more stitching than usual.  I hope the last one (?????) will be appealing to you. 
My progress on Eliza was slowed because of it but I think I will make my weekend deadline and should be able to show the finish tomorrow.  It won't be long!  Lots of satin stitched leaves, the roof, and one more side element.  Mark thinks it should be framed, I want to fringe the bottom.  Guess which it will be?  Bingo.  I can always have it framed later but I like the long long samplers without.  I should have continued on her instead of the pear, but it's so close to month's end and I needed to try out a few ideas.  Where did July go?  My brother's 70th is tomorrow and I can't have him over for dinner.  Can't use the room with the new unfinished wood, the dining room and parlor are packed with flooring bundles for the back of the house, so we have no where to serve!  The kitchen bar is where we eat, just enough for two.
Tomorrow I get in the stirrups for the doc that gave me my hysterectobelly.  Fun for all.  Speaking of stirrups, I've had my comments closed to only registered users because of the amount of spam I receive.  Most of it porn spam.  They are wasting their time because embarrassingly, I have no idea what they're referring to.  I would have to look up half of the words, and the rest I am totally clueless.  Before I get back to stitching, I'll show you Nitzy sitting in the shade, thinking of what trouble to get into next.
Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow to show off my long time coming, long arce sampler.
 
Stay safe!
Thank you for taking the time to visit.

I'm sad to hear you're having troubles of any kind, especially animal. :( Love Eliza and can't wait to see the new and last pear. Bummer about not being able to have your brother over for his b'day. :(

Barb said...

Sorry to hear about your many frustrations! Eliza is wonderful. You are right, it can be framed anytime. My DH wishes I'd frame less. I think I just lack imagination on what else to do.

Sorry to hear all is not good in the animal kingdom--hopefully this will right itself soon.

Ahh so you're going for the "peek" visit!

Oh Marly, I'm sorry about your animal troubles. I know whatever you come up with for the last pear will be wonderful. And Eliza is just so pretty - I really love the colors on the house. Hopefully you will still be able to get together with your brother? Nitzy looks like he has found a nice cool place to relax. :)

Stitching looks great and I'm excited to see how you finish it. Sorry to here about the animal troubles. Instead of having your brother over, why not take dinner to him or take him out? Whatever you do, I'm sure he'll be pleased.

Hope your troubles with the animals gets better soon, it can be so frustrating. Its too bad about not being able to have your brothers 70th but maybe you can have an un-70th for him when all the renos are done. I love Eliza and am excited to see the new pear, Sounds very interesting.

Sorry to hear you are having troubles with the animals, I hope it will be okay? Nitzy looks so very sweet. And your Eliza looks FAB! Love the yellow house!

Faye said...

Good luck in the stirrups.... And with the animal woes... Eliza is eye catching,,, I really must go find this chart!!!!

Carol said...

Eliza is looking amazing, Marly--that is one long, long sampler! Good luck with your pear design--I know it will be as special as all the others you've created.

Hope the animal problems get resolved soon--sounds like you have enough chaos in your house right now with the remodeling!

I had to do the same with my blog--I don't allow anonymous comments any longer and it seems to be working out just fine...

Sorry to hear of your animal troubles, hope everyone is OK? Nothing more upsetting than having one of our furkids sick or injured. Eliza is looking lovely and happy belated birthday to your brother! Deb

Stoopid Spammers! I just don't GET the purpose... do they really think a 'Stitching Devotee' or 'Samplers and Santas' WANT what they are offering?? But then again, they don't even read or speak English half the time... I look forward to seeing your end-of-the-month finish! It is gorgeous so far! Hugs!
