Good morning my friends! It's time for another TUSAL report again! I started the month out really strong with my stitching, and got a little derailed. Overall, I'm pleased with what I have accomplished. Since I am on the road again, my threads are not in my TUSAL dish, so I have to show them sitting with the piece I've been working on. I'll save this nice little pile and add them to my jar at home.

I was concerned when I found one little mistake in my counting, and I received so much wonderful advice from my blogging friends! Some suggested pull it all out and fix it, some said leave it. I compromised. I pulled out the bad leaves and fixed them. Then I pulled a small area of the border at the top. The mistake was too obvious there. But I did not rip it all out. So there is an extra empty row between the two borders. It all worked out, and looks ok.
I have travelled to Atlanta, GA this weekend. I am taking advantage of a workshop to help prepare for my upcoming clinicals. I have had information overload, 8 hours of learning, combined with homework. There has been no time or energy for stitching this weekend, even though I brought my project along. This trip has been well worth my time and travels though. I am learning things I didn't get out of a book, and I would have failed without this knowledge. I'll be on the road, headed home tomorrow morning. And now, I'm off to class for today! Hope ya'll are staying warm and dry through all this amazing weather across the country, thanks for stopping to visit!


  1. I am glad you figured out the borders and can move along.
    Study hard and learn much!!

  2. That is a beautiful stitching. I often make mistakes now when I cross-stitch. My patience and my attention just aren't what they used to be which is why I usually stick with simple little patterns that I can finish quickly. Safe travels to you. Have a great week. Tammy
