I didn't get as as many squares done this week but I was stitching every day on my challenge stitching book. I just did some tried and true for the squares that I could do whole watching TV. The book had to be done at a table because of the bulk.

Daily Stitching and a challenge

Daily Stitching and Chocolate
I seemed to get stuck on one stitch again this week. It was Eskimo Laced Running Stitch (ELRS). It was a very easy stitch to do so I just kept trying different variations.
One of the guests brought this box of Norman Love chocolate. I do love chocolate and this box was exceptional in its beauty and taste.
Just look at them, each one a work of art and almost too pretty to eat. But we have sampled them and they are as delicious as they are beautiful. It came with a chart, explaining each flavor.

Daily Stitching and More Birthdays
Even though I had a busy week with company and such, I still managed to get a square done everyday. I am still exploring the buttonhole stitch and its variations.
Celebrating my sister Ruth's and Claire's birthdays with my niece, Lauren at DeRoma's Restaurant (outside, of course.) The food was delicious, as were the Expresso Martinis. And,no, we did not all plan on wearing blue.

Daily Stitching and Rock art
I was a little behind on my daily stitching because I was working on my monthly challenge, which you will see at the end of the month. I had fun with the Buttonhole Stitch and its variations and I am not finished exploring those.
HIgh Low Buttonhole, French Knots and plain Buttonhole.
Closed Buttonhole. I really had a hard time with the spacing on this one. It is not a difficult stitch, but very hard (for me) to get it even on a circle. I took out quite a few and finally said "it is what it is".
I walk for at least an hour every morning and was surprised to see these cute rock sculptures scattered around the common area walkways. There were a few more, but these were my favorites.
