Gosh I feel cold. 29 outside right now and I slept cold all night. Time to put the winter comforter on the bed.
Not much stitching was accomplished this past week, but the owl finally has a full tree.
There is still an enormous amount to stitch on this sampler! The sides will be longer and then, of course, the bottom border. Plenty of critters still to occupy space and, as typical of Quaker samplers, letters in random order all over the sampler. I was debating whether or not to stitch the letters, but I think I will. They are all the same color, and I think I will do my initials in a different color.
As I mentioned yesterday, I started this book the other day. I've now read roughly 75 pages or so and much of it is very familiar...like I've already read it. Funny as I don't recall all of it, but bits and pieces. I have enough books from the library that I will most likely abandon this one in favor of another. No more browsing in the library though - they have gone back to curb side pick up only at least through the end of January. Probably best, but it sure was nice to wander the aisles all by myself the other week.
I'm hoping work will be quiet today (yesterday was). Pretty much everyone is in Thanksgiving mode so it should not be crazy. I have laundry and some cleaning I'd like to get done. Colin & Mailing invited us for dinner tomorrow night since we are not spending Thanksgiving together. Looking forward to that and need to find out if we can bring any food or wine. I did buy a very pretty cyclamen for them at Trader Joe's yesterday. My Grandmother used to grow the most beautiful cyclamen and gloxinia which reminds me I need to look for some of them.
Time to throw a quilt over the clothesline to air out and then pour another cup of coffee. Enjoy the day!
