Almost Late! September IHSW

I was planning to post around nine this morning, but I got a call at 7:45 from my supervisor saying she felt 'so sick' and could I be there to open up at 8:00?  Um - no, it takes me 12 minutes to drive if I floor it, and you just woke me out of a sound sleep - I cannot get ready for a full day's work in three minutes!

So she went and opened and I got there about 8:20 and she's on the phone chattering away - ARGH!  Seemed fine until someone would say 'I thought you were sick' and then it was moan and groan.  I was almost amused.  She finally got off the phone and left at 9:30.

Oh well.  I can use the hours.

Anyway - enough about my complaining!!!  Here is Nostlagy last IHSW:

And my progress - I nearly finished her hair.  Would have, if I didn't end up having to frog because of three little stitches... and I ended up having to frog them twice (it included the stitches around them).  First time they were too far over.  Fixed it, but then realized that they should have been a row higher, too.  Bleh.

I still had fun, though!  Next time around I WILL finish up her hair and get back to the leaves.


  1. Wow, that's really nice so far, proper positioning or not! The brown highlights in the hair look great in the photo, so I can't imagine how nice they are in real life.

  2. Sorry about the frog visit Tama. But you got a lot done.


  3. Oh sorry looks like Mr.Frog left my place and headed to yours. At least it wasn't too bad a visit. She's coming along nicely. Lovely stitching!
