SK Effects of Caffeine - SAL Update 6

Yikes! This update is being posted much later in the day than I had hoped. The past three weeks have been a blur. Unfortunately, not a lot of progress was made on my Storykeep Effects of Caffeine cross-stitch.

Here is a photo of Randal Spangler's artwork.

Only 83 stitches were added. I am hoping to make more progress by our May 19th update. We have university graduation celebrations and Mother's Day coming up between now and then, so we shall see...


I am still filling in the author's name: I. M. DRAGGIN.

I want to thank Avis for all she does to keep this SAL going! It is a bit different from many other stitch-alongs, as participants share progress on one project of their own choice. If you are interested in joining, you may find more details by following the link to her blog below.

I do hope you will visit everyone to see what they working on! We are in many different time zones, so if a post is not up yet, please check back later. Jess is taking a break for the moment.

The reason my post is later than I had hoped... I generally draft my SAL update on Saturday and schedule it to post in the wee hours of Sunday morning. However, I had an opportunity to help a relative out during my bit of free time before my husband and I left to attend an event at the McMenamens Edgefield Hotel.  (We always enjoy the Edgefield, and learn a bit more about the history of the facility - which was once a poor farm - with every visit. You may learn more about it here.) We also had an opportunity to listen to Amadan perform. It was so much fun! (This high energy band has a Facebook page here.) This morning we enjoyed a yummy breakfast at the Black Rabbit Restaurant. (My fruit salad was amazing.) And on the way home, we stopped to watch Avengers: Endgame. Now it is time to tackle chores... 

Thank you for visiting!
