As consequence, what this means is that I have very little to show in my cross stitching efforts. I will however, mention that if you ever want 40 count to look big, stitch on 48 count for a while. To amuse myself, I pulled out some older projects to look at as I cannot concentrate on anything longer than 3 seconds, and so help me, the holes in the 40 count Picture This Plus Cashel linen looked big enough to hold a barn dance in. I picked up a project that I had finished, using a 14 count and I swear the holes looked big enough to drive a Mack truck through them! :)
At any rate, here is what I have so far:

Well, I best be off. My head is starting to pound again and even posting this has worn me out. Hope everyone has a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there.

Thank you for everything that you do and continue to do.
