the sprint turned into a slow jog...

i came down with a head cold sometime over the weekend, so the sprint for the background ended prematurely when i decided to take nyquil and pass out at 8:30 pm. not the idealistic birthday, but those undisturbed 9.5 hours of sleep made it worth it.

this is as far as i got, but it's slowly starting to take shape!

very simple stitch, but it makes the coolest effect when complete, almost like shaded squares. 

thank you for all the sweet birthday messages yesterday! it warmed my heart ever so...


  1. Hi Katherine,

    1. thanks linda! hoping to turn a corner soon!

  2. I hope you're feeling better today. That's what marriage is all about, sharing everything including viruses. :)

    Love your background. It has a special effect especially with the idea of shading. Super

  3. I hope you are feeling better soon. I love the inside of the diamond. Great choice.

  4. Girl-I'm getting worried about you. Are you feeling any better?
