I did find my way to the sewing room Sunday afternoon to temper my mood after the SIT headed back to college. The house always seems so empty and quiet after she leaves. The first priority was to get Magnolia Mystery into a finished flimsy.

The setting triangles are cut and I made a good start on getting the rows all stitched together. What looks like dark brown or black is actually a deep magenta. It's hard to see it in this lighting, the color shows up better in a close up.
If you look closely you can see that deep red-purple color in some of the squares. I have till Thursday to get this to finished flimsy stage for it to be in the Magnolia Mystery parade over on the Meadow Mist Designs blog. It will be close. If work backs off a bit this week, there is still a chance of that happening.
No progress on much else this weekend. Though I did finish my fifth On Ringo Lake block.

These blocks have grown on me as I've put more up on the design wall. I wasn't too thrilled with them at first. There is a medium gray in the blocks that doesn't show up well in the photos, but it adds some nice subtle shading that lets the red and yellow shine. On Ringo Lake is my current leaders and enders project, so progress is slow, but there is progress.
I'm not ready for Monday, but I'm hoping for a short week. The plan is to take a day off on Friday, but I've been warned by my supervisor that she suspects I'll have a assignment related to our lab moves that will require me to come in for a meeting or work from home on Friday. So we'll just have to see if the day off actually happens.
