The last time I stitched on Wheels was Monday evening. Here's where I am with it:
It seems to be going a bit more quickly this time (I suspect that is because I have abandoned the "backstitch as I go" plan)... but not as quickly as I'd like. :) Unfortunately, lunches in the past week have been spent running errands, so I haven't had a chance to start Mr. Abbott as yet. Hopefully next week - b/c I still have a couple days' worth of lunch time errands to run and only one free lunch hour to do it in... hmmm.
Now, I'm no tease, but I will say that in the next few days I will have an exciting announcement to make (well, exciting for my household, anyway). :)
OK... I'm going totally OT here... I just can't help myself - WARNING: If you are a viewer of the best show on TV (LOST - of course) and have not watched tonight's ep yet (entitled "Dead Is Dead") - Stop. Reading. Now. Come back after this para is over. O.M.G. I don't think I breathed for about 10 minutes after this ep was over. I may have actually passed out. I think this may go down as the best LOST ep ever... at the very least, the best ep since S1. Ben. Desmond. Smokey. Locke. Alex. Holy... I... He... It... I'm sorry... It seems I am still unable to put two coherent thoughts together in regards to tonight's ep. I just... wow. If you've never watched the show... start. Don't try to jump in this season... Netflix, beg, borrow or steal the DVDs in order, then join us for the final season next January. Trust me. It's amazing. This show is simply amazing - it's the smartest thing I've ever ever watched on TV (yeh, documentaries don't count, okay?)... the literary references, references to theories of physics, philosophy, religion. Phew. It's the sort of show you can watch "on the surface" and thoroughly enjoy, or you can be a total freak like me and visit DarkUFO to read recaps and theories from folks waaay smarter than I am. OK. I'm done. Sorry 'bout that, folks! Back to our regularly scheduled program.
Actually... I think that's about it for tonight. :) Thank you so much, ladies, for your lovely comments re: Mrs. Abbott!! It was like unwrapping my fave candy (Almond Roca, BTW) each time a new one popped up. Until next time... Happy stitching!! ~Robin
