Chatelaine Mystery X

Here is an update on Mystery X. Sorry it looks rather 'holey' but the beads and crystals are not going to be added until the end, since I use a small hoop when stitching and I would hate to crush anything.

Not too much going on the stitching front this week, this head cold has gotten a good hold and I've just felt miserable. Combined with sleeping terrible! Even hubby took his pillow and left for another room a couple nights ago. Usually I would delight in having a king size bed all to myself, but the only joy I'm finding right now is having my Kleenex box near me and who cares where they fall?

I have my sisters coming this weekend for a scrapbook session so I'm sure that will perk me up! And I've kicked the men out of the house (they're off to the cottage for a snowy weekend) so it will just be the girls here.

Oh, almost forgot! I finished my first pair of socks!! I would take a picture but they are already gone and taking up residence on Carrie's feet! They turned out so nice, I love that self patterning yarn. May be I can start on a new set today.
