Good Morning All!
A bit late posting this morning as I had my annual physical at 8:30. All is good...numbers have improved...just need to schedule a mammo and dexa and then the dreaded colonoscopy in September. I may have to postpone that last one as September is my birthday month and it is just not right to have to go through that procedure (or really, the prep) in one's birthday month. Am I right?
It's been a long time since I picked up a teeny needle - not once in May or June! But for some reason I was re-inspired to stitch on Sunday.
Can you see what inspired me? The Flamingo needle minder - thank you Dee!! I love that bit of bling. And, Fox Forest is moving along. On Sunday I stitched the tree on the right (with the gold *blooms*), the bottom tree and the bottom left Fox. All that's left now is a flower motif between the Fox and Tree and then all the alphabet letters scattered all over the place.
Meanwhile, look who was in the backyard around 7 this morning:
There was another one running across the yard further in the back, but this guy (Fox 8? Fantastic Mr. Fox?) was right by our picnic table and apple tree - just feet from our patio! I think he was scrounging around for some apples that have already fallen from the tree. Tyg was out, but not anywhere in sight, so I'm not sure if this is the same guy he sometimes meets up with or not.
On the knitting front, I did finish the first rabbit hole sock at lunch yesterday AND started rabbit hole #2 last night. I'm about 2/3 of the way through the cuff ribbing and should finish that at lunch today and start the leg.
That's it for me - I've got some reports to run and updates to do to some spreadsheets I keep at work. Have a great day!
Foxes abound! (I'm glad you weren't stitching and reading about werewolves, dragons, or something more frightening than foxes!)ReplyDelete
We have three baby foxes that show up every night to play in our sandpit. They throw The Mister's golf balls all over the place. I love to watch them. The funniest thing is that they are always accompanied by a deer who seems to be watching over them. Weird.ReplyDelete
That bit of bling looks pretty good there.ReplyDelete
Love the photo of the Fox. I hope it is NOT Fox 8. Let's go with Fantastic Mr. (or Mrs.?) fox.
Love the foxes! Both the real and the stitched!ReplyDelete
Glad you had a happy doctor's appointment!ReplyDelete
What a fun piece of "needle-bling!" :-) Happy your doctor appointment went well -- but I'm with you! No colonoscopies during a birthday month!!! (I need to schedule mine as well. . . ) Love your foxes (stitched and real). XOReplyDelete
Wow! You did get a lot of cross stitching done and not only fox on your cross stitch, but in your yard too! That's one animal that I don't see around here much. We have bear, mountain lions and a few other animals, but not fox.ReplyDelete
I agree about no colonoscopy in your birthday month. I had two in 6 weeks last fall and I was NOT thrilled.
Oh I love Bonny's comment! (except that I dare you to stitch a dragon ;-)ReplyDelete
(also re the colonoscopy - the prep has improved dramatically since I had my first one 15 years ago ... I think it might be easier to get it over with and celebrate than look "forward to" and dread)
Good job on your needlepoint.. such cute foxes and what a co-inky-dink that you have one visit so close you could get a good photo. They are usually pretty shy. I agree that one should not have to endure a colonoscopy in your birth month.. but don't put it off too long! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
how lucky to see a fox! I get glimpses but not a stunning photo like yours. Love your stitching and how it matches the fox.ReplyDelete
Foxes everywhere! I love the stitching! (and I am with you... no colonoscopies in birthday months!)ReplyDelete
The stitching is really shaping up! I love that you get to see the fox up so close, but it is a bit scary, too!ReplyDelete
Looks like you have a "skulk" of fox in your neighborhood - living as well as in thread.ReplyDelete
