I also got a small start on my first Prairie Schooler ornament for the PS Wreath SAL. My pattern is about 20 years old (one of my first PS patterns) and I had to substitute some of the colors called for because they seemed dull compared to the pattern photo. Maybe DMC shades have changed some over the years, or perhaps the color palette from the 80's was just more muted. I wanted a brighter look. I will post a picture as soon as I get my first one done.
I have a guilty little secret - DH is taking his dad on a trip back to Chicago & Wisconsin tomorrow for a week to visit relatives. This means I can stitch to my heart's content in the evenings and this weekend, while watching my favorite movies! No cleaning, no cooking, no sports on TV constantly. :) It's nice to have some quiet time to myself. I'll miss him after a few days but I get so much done when I can get some extended time in my sewing room without a lot of interruptions. Woohoo!! I'm already planning out all the things I hope to get done. I probably won't get to them all but I'm going to start making a list here to motivate myself.
