Stitching Away!

I am still trying to get my voice back, so I spent yesterday being very quiet and cross-stitching. I made a whole lot of progress on my undercover gift. I just have stem-stitching, back-stitching and a few French knots to complete. 

I am totally enjoying this stitching mainly because I am not thinking about any chores since I am trying to get over this cold. It helps that this is a three-day weekend for me too.
This will be my Slow Sunday Stitching for today. Kathy asked us to share a photo of our hand while stitching.....difficult to do when you are trying to keep the stitching secret. As you can see I am left-handed.
Pop on over to Kathy's Quilts to see what other bloggers are stitching.

This is also my son's birthday weekend. He turns 26 today! Wow those years have gone by quickly. Since he is living on the other side of the country, Hubby and I miss celebrating with him. We sent him a gift and some Kringle. For those of you who don't know what Kringle is, it is a Danish pastry in the shape of a large oval.
Pecan and Raspberry PairĀ (POP1)
My Wisconsin aunt and uncle used to send it to our family at Christmas each year. My father grew up in Racine, WI. I love it. There are many different flavors. Now I order it from O&H Danish Bakery for my son for his "birthday cake". He can have some today and freeze the rest for future breakfasts. (Please note that I have no personal or financial interest in this bakery).


Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely stitching! That danish looks absolutely wonderful At our house apple strudel was a Christma thing and I skipped it this year, trying to cut back on sugar and carbs. Oh so hard! But, this last week or two that is all I could think about. I think I need to make some and freeze part of it for later so we don't over do.

that Kringle looks divine - I have forgotten about them, moved away from Wisconsin back in 1972 - the area I lived in had great bakery's I will need to look for a recipe on line for them.

Your stitching is lovely. I do hope you recover your voice quickly. No fun being under the weather on a long weekend.

Kaja said...

At least having a cold has left you lots of stitching time, but I hope you are recovering fast anyway. Happy birthday to your son.
