Do you Doodle?
Often I'll take some left over canvas or cut a small square. Other times, I will take a larger piece and draw squares.
Below is the doodle cloth I'm currently working on. It's more of a free form doodle cloth. See the numbers below the blue stitches? That's where I'm making a note of the number of strands used. I auditioned the thread both in horizontal and vertical stitches to save myself trying to figure out the right number of threads when working stitches later on. That's another good habit and Time Saver to get into when your working up your own stitches.
Now the Dog Sneeze part. Boy, it's been a week. Sinus infection ga-lorrrre! I'm on the mend but both Cocoa and I felt under the weather this week.
Things are getting better quickly! The nice FedEx gentlemen showed up yesterday with a wonderful early Christmas box for me:
