Weekend progress

I didn't do as much stitching over the weekend as I would have liked, but progress was made.
I decided I was fed up with the yellows and mustard shades and made a start on the hem of her dress, where some pretty pinks and purples make an appearance. Soon I'll have to make a decision about beading. Do I add the beads on this half now, beading my way back up to the middle, or do I wait and add all the beads later?
Sometimes it can feel a little like starting all over again if you leave all the bead work to the end.
But by adding them now I also risk damaging some of the beads.....
I shall continue to ponder...
This morning I unrolled her from the bars. I'm finally working very close to the bottom of the design, but I still have all of the top half to do. But I can't help plotting and wondering about my next project. What to stitch? There are so many to chose from. LOL
Thank you for all the get well wishes. I'm still not 100%, but definitely improved, hopefully enough to stick it out at work for a whole shift. 
Much as I have enjoyed the extra me time, I really do have to make another effort to get back to work, and I suppose I'd better catch up with the housework too, so I'm not sure how much stitching time I'll get today, or indeed how things will go this week.
I'll keep you posted.

Pleased you are feeling better, it's just a shame that these things linger on and you are not quite 100% yet.

Still good to see progress. Keep getting better.

It's good to hear your health is improving. You are making such lovely progress.. I would have been one to change colour for a little while too!

The hem certainly adds some definition to the skirt. Looking good. Let's hope you get rid of this lurgy soon. Good luck with returning to work.
