Zs and Blue Z

So the semester is over finally. Yesterday was a blur. I was able to slot two exams into the afternoon session so that I didn't have to stay for the evening session. I stopped at Wegman's on the way home and bought a hodgepodge of comfort foods: pupusas and lox and cream cheese and onion bagels. I put them all away and then staggered off to bed at 7 p.m. I got up at 10:30 p.m. to eat and stitch, and at 7:30 this morning to feed the cats and stitch. And went back to bed and slept until 1:30 this afternoon. And now I feel like myself again. Here's a little bit more on Alphabetissimo. I'm working on the big "Z" square. With no homework, I should be done by the end of this month.

Here's something I picked up a few months ago--I don't think I showed you before. Here's the official picture of "Moonlight Garden" by Drawn Thread. I'd like to start it when Alphabetissimo is done.

Here's my photo of it. The cover photo is not especially clear and doesn't really show the huge amount of texturing and the specialty stitches. It's a bit daunting. The silks include some I haven't stitched with before--Northern Lights by Needlepoint, Inc. and Dinky Dyes.
I'm only taking one course this summer, so I should have more time for lots of things. I want to stitch until my butt is numb, and machine sew (I've got some nice drapery material) and get some exercise and eat better and sleep more.
"And pet the bunnies!"

Happy Mothers' Day to all of you who are moms!

Congratulations on finishing up the semester! I hope that you have a lot of time for stitch butt now. I love Alphabetissmo and also the Drawn Thread piece. The chart covers never do justice to what it's actually going to look like!
