It's not much but here is my progress on my current WIP. It is called My Baby Duck and it is from the May/June 1989 issue of Cross Stitch and Country Crafts. This is a pretty simple pattern. No specialty stitches, no metallics, and no beads! However, there is a lot of back stitching in the hair. Plus side of that is it is all one color! :)
Things have been a little crazy trying to get back into the school routine but I think they are settling down now. I had better enjoy this while it lasts because the kids' school district is going to year round school soon. None of my kids have ever attended a school that went year round. They have always had a traditional school year. I'm sure once I have more information about it I will have an opinion but as of right now I don't.
One thing that did happen this week that really opens your eyes. There was a school shooting where a student went to a local high school and shot 2 principals, (killing one and the other is in serious condition) and then killed himself. Thankfully it wasn't any of my kids' schools but still it could have been! It is such a scary thought.
