Lost days and~~~~~

Not bad enough when the days get lost along the way of the week, but...
No...I am not serving sport socks. What you see is a plate in the set of 4 that now only has 3 plates...got it right. Some place a desert/salad plate is all by itself, missing from its mates. There are only 2 of us in this house...Mr H and me. Neither of us knows what happened to the missing plate. As for the sock, well we all have one of those washing machines that gets so hungry that it eats socks....so, if you see a plate like this one or find my missing sport sock, please return it to me....no questions asked. How about an update on the Mourning Dove nest....well, nothing to report as she sits and so far no hatching. Her 14 days are up so what is the delay? Such drama in the nests! Wednesday was my  meeting of Desert Threaders Chapter --EGA and we had a class in Stumpwork...
I am pleased with how it finished. I now feel confidant to try more projects. This is a small 2 x 3 design...perfect to learn with. The Cornflowers are using padding and satin stitching and the tops are similar to the Turkey Stitch.  Then there was the bead wrapping for the berries and of course the normal embroidery stitches for added filling.  Fun to do. My shawl continues to grow but not yet long enough for me. The stitching for the little purse is finished not to complete it....to be honest, I have 3 projects waiting for completion. Just have to buckle down and sit at the sewing machine. I think that about covers what I have been up to this week. I promised Mr H  that I would make him Tapioca pudding today so that is next on the daily to do. I hope you have a wonderful day. Thank you for your friendship and kind words and for taking time to visit.

Sorry to hear the sock-eater has spread to the crockery now! My older son wears odd socks all the time so he has no worries about the sock eater. My younger son seems to treat socks as a disposable item the way he puts holes in them!

Lovely stumpwork, not something I've tried.

Your post made me laugh. Socks and now plates. Amazing how things disappear.

Oh I know! Brian was tearing the place apart the other day for his missing sock. He thinks I lost it because of my meds. I don't think I did! Who knows?! Not us!!
Lovely stumpwork.

We had that happen with a steak knife. It disappeared when my Mom came to visit, then reappeared the next time she came. A mystery indeed.
