Welcome to Tiny Needle Tuesday where it appears that I have jumped back into stitching with both feet! I've made quite a bit of progress on Hallow Eden by Plum Street Samplers. I am waiting (not so patiently) for the thread that I've ordered: Hickory Sticks by Crescent Colours. It's the shade used for the alphabet, Adam & Eve's hair (I managed to get half of Eve's hair stitched last night before running out). I ordered the thread ($2.50 for the skein of thread and $4 shipping!!) last week, so hopefully it will come soon. The trunk of the tree has some of that color in it and there are still a couple of letters (in addition to the rest of Eve's hair). But here it tis:
I just love this. The snake cracks me up (Fletch thinks it looks like a giant fish hook). The quirkiness of samplers is what I love about them.
Yesterday morning was busy at work, but I managed to get out around Noon. Stopped at Trader Joe's on my way home and gosh! That store still has lines to get inside. I just needed 3 things, so it was a very quick trip and (for once) I did not get distracted and buy 20 things that were not on my list - lol.
I'm home today and am hoping for a quiet day. I didn't sleep well last night, so there is most likely a nap in my future. The temps are still mild (53 this morning), but each day is getting a bit warmer. If it doesn't get too warm, perhaps I'll even take a walk. I've missed my trails and it would be good to get outside a bit.
It's 6 a.m. in Eastern PA and I can hear a rooster crowing up the street. Hope everyone's Tuesday goes well - enjoy!
