Tiny Needle Tuesday June 23, 2020

Hello all,

Whew!  Summer is definitely here.  I did go for a walk after lunch yesterday.  Just an hour along the path in Oaks that runs by the Perkiomen Creek and the Schuylkill River.  I was literally dripping when I got back to my car.  And, I noticed last night that my shoulders had gotten a bit sun burned which is a  no-no for me.  I think maybe I should try to get out this morning before the heat of the day. 

The good news is my floss arrived from the second shop I contacted.  I called them last week and the floss arrived yesterday!  So, Hallow Eden is finished:


I really like this piece - just quirky enough for me.  Today I will take the time to go through my stash and decide what to stitch next.

Last night I managed to do both a little knitting (on the Hellebore Hitchhiker) and a little crocheting (another Granny Square is finished).  But my hands felt sticky the entire time...just too hot.

The rooster up the street has been crowing non-stop for the last 20 minutes.  Actually he crows ALL day long.  Fletch and I often hear him when we sit on the patio in the late afternoon before dinner.  Sometimes I think that rooster is like a baby who has his days and nights mixed up.  Other times I think he just likes to hear himself - lol.  And the catbirds that have come back this year are constantly fussing at Tyg when he is outside.  It's enough of a racket to make you think you will lose your mind.

The hibiscus that Fletch picked up the other day is apparently loving being here rather than Lowes!  I just took this picture a few minutes ago from our patio.  Fletch planted it just at the front of our garden.


The picture is a bit blurry, but you can see how LARGE the blooms are and how many more have opened up.  It is a show stopper for sure (and it was only $16!!!).  Hopefully the deer will leave it alone.

That's it for me!  I think I'll go through my stitching stash and pick out my next project.

  2. You finished that cross stitch quickly once you had the floss and it looks great. Just quirky enough for me to admire, too! Here's hoping the rooster and catbirds quiet down so you don't lose your mind!

  3. Your cross stitch project cracks me up. What's up with the cat? And the modestly placed objects are too funny.

    We've been invaded by sparrows here. All kinds, and they've reproduced as well. It's irritating that my high-dollar seed (hull-less sunflower) is being decimated by them. I think I'd rather have a rooster and some catbirds.

  4. Hello, your finished cross stitch looks great. I love the large hibsicus blooms. We have a farm up the street from us and their rooster crows all the time too. I have a very loud catbird here too. It feels cooler today, very foggy here. Have a happy day!

  12. Your sampler looks so great! Now the fun of choosing something new. That hibiscus is amazing. It must like where you planted it. I had to turn the A/C on in the trailer today for the first time. Once it got to 89 inside I decided that was enough. My hands were sticky too and I was trying to knit on a dishcloth.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  13. Bravo on the sampler finish.. it's cute! I look forward to seeing what you choose to do next. I'm sure the hibiscus is happy to be in the ground. So many plants get unhappy in those pots. Have a super week. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  14. Zach had a nearby rooster as well, In Mexico that was very loud and very nonstop. Eventually he quit hearing him. He blocked him out! I saw a darling toy schnauzer today on a walk along the lake, oh gosh it was cute.
