Whew!! Yesterday was such a long day at work. I had told Fletch I'd be home right after lunch, but before I knew it the time was flying by and it was already after 3 p.m. So many spreadsheets, my eyes felt like they were crossed. So I packed stuff up, came home and now I need to go in to the office again today.I had thought I could get a little bit of work done last night too, but I think my brain was too fried. Instead, Fletch and I sat out by a fire.
It was a beautiful night for a fire. The temp never got really hot yesterday and by 8:30 or so it had begun to drop. I had to stand up every once and awhile and rotate so that my backside would feel the warmth of the fire.
Well, on to the stitching for Tiny Needle Tuesday. After finishing May Basket last week, I went through my stash and picked out a little sampler too work on. May Basket was small - approximately 3" square. This new one is slightly bigger - it will end up being about 7" by 7.5". You may remember that I really love Adam and Eve samplers, so that is what I chose. It is called "Hallow Eden" by Plum Street Samplers. Here is a picture of it:
And here is where I am:
I'm using the called-for linen by Lakeside Linens. The color actually has a little bit of a green cast to it. I'm using 28 count. The threads are Crescent Colours (cotton hand dyed). It's been enjoyable to work on some stitching again.
Tonight I plan to make some home-made pesto using fresh basil, fresh radish greens and garlic scapes that Fletch will pick in the garden today. YAY for it being scape season!!
Well, almost 6 a.m. I've got to get moving, dry my hair and get dressed and go to work. wishing you all a wonderful day - enjoy!
