Late June YOTA post

Have a late YOTA post. Linda, over at Pull The Other Thread is kindly hosting the SAL for us. The link is on my side bar if you would like to join us!
 I was quietly sitting and stitching on my boy Fun Guy Stocking. Getting ready to update for my YOTA. THEN DH comes in and says "I'm going to install the new WiFi!" Cool! The old one was slow and a 2006 model. DH told me an hour installation, tops. Uh huh...... 6 hours later, with a road service call interruption, our internet was back on. Was having withdrawel because every time i reached for my Ipad I had to slap my hand. The old hand was looking pretty red after 6 hours..... In the mean time I cleaned up the confetti stitching on my guys collar and vest. While stitching I was distracted by the white snow "blobs" on my boys face. Decided to add some Kreinik pearl blending filament over the top of the lighter snow stitches. And the two gray stitches in his eyes. Much better result. His eyes have a sparkle and the light face blobs look more like sparkly snow.

Getting to the point where I can get a good run at his wings. Hope to have these two pages done for my HAED goals this year.
