Good Morning All!
Another damp, kind of chilly day here. But, I think it is supposed to warm up some. Fletch is planning to grill some lamb chops for us for dinner!! Lamb is one of those meats that I don't want to have really often, but a nicely grilled loin chop is delicious (as is 7 hour leg of lamb - some day I'll share that recipe!).
This morning finds me still having connection issues to the VPN when I am remote. I can put my password in, but when the screen comes up stating that a code has been texted to me, I don't receive the text. I tried having a call to my cell instead, but that didn't work either. Tom from IT (kind of like Jake from State Farm - LOL) believes it is something that can be fixed remotely...hopefully that is the case as I am unable to access any of my files on the network! That, my friends, means I can't do much work. Yesterday I did go into the office, but as soon as I turn my laptop on at the office I am connected to the VPN. Tom was in the office yesterday and looked at some "back" things on my laptop, but everything is set up the way it should be. I was going to have to change my password in a few days anyway, so I went ahead and did that, but the problem wasn't solved. Tom is not the fastest to respond to me, but I'm hoping this can be taken care of this morning.
In the meantime, here we are at Tiny Needle Tuesday. The finale is getting closer and closer! This past week I stitched a couple of leaves, a couple of letters and a pretty toadstool. Here's a close up of what was stitched.
All of the letters except my initials have now been stitched. The red in the toadstool is the color I will use to stitch my initials and I will also put in 2021 in that color somewhere in the sampler. There are still two border motifs to be stitched and a couple of creatures. Here is an overall shot of where things are as of last night:
Because I belong to the Free Library of Philadelphia, I get emails from them all the time. Yesterday the email contained a link to an article in the "Philadelphia Inquirer" for a plant swap that the library is doing. What a fun idea! Along the lines of a Little Free Library, but this is taking place at the library (initially at the Chestnut Hill branch). Wouldn't it be cool if this took off and started happening all over?
That's it for me on this dreary Tuesday morning. If things (weather) improves, I may try to get a walk in...or I may have to hang around to deal with computer issues...hopefully not. Enjoy the day!!
