It is a beautiful (though somewhat chilly) SUNNY day out there. So sunny, that I had to close the blinds by my desk due to the glare on my monitor.
Last Friday when I got home early I went through my stitching stash and picked a new piece to work on. Those WIP's were just not calling me (as I said before, there's a reason why they are WIP's - lol). Rather than go with one of the HUGE samplers I had listed, I chose a smaller piece to get back into stitching.
This is Fox Forest by Work Basket. I like foxes and, in fact, one ran across our yard just the other day. I do NOT like hearing them "bark" in the night, but I do enjoy seeing them. I thought this would be a cute piece for a child's room (NO, Mailing is NOT pregnant and they are not planning any kids in the near future...but I'll be ready should that occur - lol). My very teeny start:
The linen was unmarked in my stash, but I believe it is 32 count and I am stitching over two - much easier than 40 count.
On the reading front, I am just about finished with The Library Book (still reading slowly, but enjoying very much). Next up are two books from Overdrive: Tell the Wolves I'm Home and Love and Ruin - I should be able to start one of them tonight or tomorrow.
Fletch and I started watching Trapped but that has turned out to be way too gruesome for me - bad dreams, etc. So, we switched the other night to Reign and are enjoying that - good acting and new faces to us.
After Valerie talked about all the greenery coming up in her yard I decided to take a look around - our lilac bush does have buds (leaf buds, not flower buds) and the wisteria has buds that are looking purplish. The daffodil leaves are up and some tulip leaves and the crocus have begun to bloom. Tomorrow is the first day of Spring!
Wishing you all a wonderful day.
