Sampler Update and March TUSAL

I was hoping to get a full 2 weeks work on Camelot Sampler, but on Monday the 24th I went to bed with a raw throat and woke up at 3am with a full blown sinus infection.  You know the symptoms - the roof of your mouth and back of your throat raw and acing along with pain from your sinuses filled to bursting that throbs in rhythm with your pounding headache.  And ears that don't work from the constant filling, draining and popping.  Needless to say I was not in the mood to do much of anything.  Surprisingly by Friday I was feeling better and took a stab at trying to finish the green knight.  I almost did it, I had one color left on the knight's horse to stitch when I quit Friday night.

I'm getting a wee bit burnt out on this sampler, so I'm thinking of switching over to TW's 12 days of Christmas starting tomorrow.  Even though it's still over one stitching it'll be like working on a 'small' project and I really need to feel like I'm finishing something.

As you can see there's been a few colors deposited in the Ort Beaker.  I've fluffed it up just a bit so you can see the gold braid remnants from the finished banjo section of the Musical Bell Pull.  The little colored bits of green, brown, straw, and plum are from Camelot Sampler.

Tai says thanks for stopping by.

So sorry to hear you've been sick. You've done a very good progress despite it. Hope you get better soon.
