Hi everyone! How's it going? It's pretty quiet around here, but I feel like it's the calm before the storm - everything's gone back to normal now that the Eid holidays are over, but one of my sisters-in-law (my husband's the oldest child, he's got three sisters, and so she's the oldest girl) is getting engaged and the party is in a week and a half. She's been pretty good at getting everything ready - the venue, the food, the music, the decorations - but it feels like she's been simmering and she's about to boil over the closer we get to the party. Family members are going to be coming in from abroad, too. My husband's family is Yemeni/Spanish, and she's marrying a Pakistani/British boy she went to university with, so it should be an interesting mix of people!
Anyway, on to some stitching news. Since finishing The Three Bears last week, I've started another Prairie Schooler Fables & Tales. Here's my start on The Tortoise and the Hare:
All I've done so far is stitch the hare. I was worried about the red eyes at first (does it make him seem a little possessed?) but the rest of the colors go together really nicely.
Yep, that's all for now! No classes today, so I'll be cleaning the house and trying to think of engagement presents.
